Nepal – Annapurna Avalanche Warning!

Pokhara, Nepal, March 2017: Recent days has seen a cold snap extend across Nepal from the Northwest accompanied by significant snow falls. Reports from trekkers heading down into Pokhara suggest parts of the Annapurna circuit are knee deep in snow. Additionally, the BBC mentioned the risk of avalanches across the Western Himalayan region!

If you plan on Annapurna trekking between now and End of April, better make sure your guide is of some repute! Organised treks of course will know and assess the avalanche risk.

Here’s a few shots of comparisons:
