Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares.

Nepal is a landlocked country which lies in Hindu Kush Himalayan region. Nepal has monsoonal climate having four main seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter.
Below is a general guide to conditions at different seasons:
January to March (winter): In this season temperature will decrease at often 0°C (32°F) at night, with extreme cold at high elevations. It is possible to trek in places like the Everest region during the winter but due to extreme cold weather and heavy snow fall it may be quite difficult than as usual.
April to June (summer): In these months it is quite warm and dry weather. There is an abundance of blooming flowers in the Himalayas at this time, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a splash of color to the landscape. This season is the best time to undertake mountain expeditions.
June to September (Monsoon): There will be heavy monsoonal rainfall in this season. Rains are generally lighter in high Himalayan reasons. In this season the mountain ranges are not often visible due to the clouds.
October to December (autumn): These months are cool and clear which is due to the end of monsoon, there is little dust in the air so this is the best season to visit the hilly and mountainous regions.

Excellent organized annapurna circuit trekking tour. The guide has a deep knowledge about this area, secret places and all the plant and animal life of this region. The package was with one of the best hotels in Kathmandu: Alpine Hotel. The Hotel has a good and quiet place in the busy Thamel district. The customer service by Kedar, Sujan and the complete Actual Adventure Trekking and Expedition team is excellent. They manage all requirements fast and with high effort. I can recommend this trekking company as you perfect partner for this lovely country.With a local person you get a different and better insight into the different areas of Nepal.
Sujan Neupane was my guide for the Annapurna Circuit trek, which lasted 12 days. He was excellent in every way – I don’t think I would have had such an enjoyable trek without him. He knows the best local places to stay, to eat and to see. He is encouraging and accommodating and just plain fun to travel with. I would recommend Sujan to any one of my friends and would prefer to have him as my guide for my next trek. Thank you Kedar and all team from Actual Adventure for this memorial and enjoyable trip.´
