Weather Conditions in June

change start

The middle of June typically marks the beginning of the monsoon. Clear mornings are still possible but get increasingly less likely towards the end of the month. Be prepared for rain and hot humid weather in the low elevation valleys. The added moister means the hills are beginning to change to their vibrant monsoon green. The weather is generally a little drier than in the low valleys at high altitude, but cloud cover can be frustrating when trekking to viewpoints. As always in the spring, early morning is your best chance for clear skies.

At a glance
On average there are 17 days with precipitation in June. The highest point on the trek is High Camp (Mardi Himal) at 3900 m. During June, expect high temperatures of around 14.0°C (57°F) and lows down to 4.0°C (39°F) at High Camp (Mardi Himal).

Highlights: Ghandruk and Poon Hill
Difficulty: moderate
A moderate hike in the Annapurna region for those who want a taste of trekking without the high altitude. While relatively easy by Nepal standards, this trek still packs a punch, with some steep climbs and awesome views, including the famed Himalayan panorama from atop Poon Hill.

The side trip to Poon Hill was beautiful although the view at Khopra was more dramatic and far less crowded. If we did the Khopra trek again, I probably would not go to Poon Hill as well.

Ghandruk Loop Australian Camp Out and Back and via Ghorepani (Poon Hill) led by SAMIKSHYA CHAUDHARY

The final ascent from Ghorepani to Poon Hill is not as difficult as some other parts of the trek, and is certainly worth doing for the spectacular views of the sunrise over the Annapurna range from the top.
