Follow the ancient trade route once dominated by the Kingdom of Lo. Few regions offer this spectacular mix of cultural and geographic treasures. The spectacular eroded canyons of the trans-Himalayan landscape are a kaleidoscope of colors set beneath the distant snow-clad peaks of the Annapurna Range. Throughout this arid colorful landscape are the shrines, monasteries, caves and villages built by the devout Buddhist population. The highlight of the region are the monasteries and caves around the fortified walled city of Lo Manthang.

Weather Conditions in September

change start

Mid-September marks the start of the ‘Fall Season’ historically the monsoon would end in mid-September, however in recent years the monsoon has officially withdrawn in early October. While there is a good chance of precipitation, clear skies and lush, rice paddy terraced hills are your spectacular when it is not raining. The chance of rain decreases as the month progresses. The end of the monsoon means there is still a chance of the occasional heavy snowfall at high altitudes. Furthermore, high passes can have a lot of snow that has accumulated over the monsoon.

On average there are 15 days with precipitation in September. The highest point on the trek is Chogo La (Marang La) at 4320 m. During September, expect high temperatures of around 10.5°C (51°F) and lows down to 0.5°C (33°F) at Chogo La (Marang La).
