The best time to do Pisang Peak climbing is during the Spring ( March to June) and autumn (September to November) seasons. These months offer the most favorable weather and optimal conditions in the Annapurna region. Spring (March to June): This is the post-winter season when the weather starts to warm up, and the trekking trails become vibrant with blooming flowers and rhododendrons. The temperature is generally mild, with clear skies and excellent visibility. It’s a great time to witness the beautiful landscapes, lush greenery, and panoramic mountain views.

Autumn (September to November 15): This is the post-monsoon season when the weather is stable, and the skies are generally clear. The temperature is comfortable, making it ideal for trekking and climbing. The autumn months offer breathtaking views of the mountains, including the Annapurna ranges, and the overall trekking experience is enhanced by the festive atmosphere during the Nepalese Dashain and Tihar festivals.

Both seasons have their advantages, and the choice ultimately depends on your preferences. If you enjoy seeing colorful flowers and blooming vegetation, spring is a good choice. If you prefer clearer skies and panoramic mountain views, autumn is a great option. It’s worth noting that the Annapurna region can be visited year-round, but other seasons such as winter (December to Feb) and monsoon (July to August) may bring more challenges due to cold temperatures, snowfall, and potential landslides.
