Nepal guide info team advice 2019/20 monsoon trekking and travel
June, July and August will be the monsoon season and trekking during this time can be quite miserable as there can be extremely heavy downpours, and not just for an hour or two!!!
However there are several places that receive very little rain as they are protected by the high mountains—Mustang, Upper Manang ( both in northern Annapurna circuit area), Simikot (extreme west) and Dolpo (west of Pokhara). There is one advantage if you trek at this time-–it will be easy to find a lodge as there will be very few trekkers, but due to the weather it is unlikely that you will see too much of the mountains. I once trekked the Annapurna circuit during the rainy season and it was a problem getting my clothes dry, not to mention that there were several small avalanches, and raging streams/rivers.

Outline Itinerary:
Day 01: Drive to Birethanti (1475m), and trek to Ulleri (2100m) 4-5 hours walk
Day 02: Trek to Ghorepani Deurali (2850m), 5-6 hours walk
Day 03: Excursion Poon Hill (3210m) and trek to Tadapani (2680m), 5 – 6 hrs walk.
Day 04: Trek to Ghandruk (1940m), 4 hours walk.
Day 05: Trek to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara
