a freind and i are looking at walking in the Annapurna region in Nepal late February. i am looking for advice travelling to the region that time of year? we expect to get to the thorung la pass about the 28th of feb and seeing it is their transition from winter to spring am concerned the pass may be closed. reading info on the net and guide books has only confused us further as some sites say wait til april, some march some feb. not consistent reports.
has any one experience there at that time of year?
Greetings from Nepal !!!
It is nice to hear that you are coming this wonderful land and hearty welcome. Well exactly no body can say during that time the Thorong La pass will closed or open because mountain weather is unpredictable. some time it will be close in winter and some time in spring but mostly in winter season that pass is closed. So in my openion you head up that time frame. If unfortunately will closed also you have to wait 2 or 3 days than local people are make the way no woories. Hope this info will help you. If you need any assistance than let me know here I am happy to say.
Have a nice travels !!!
thanks for your response panday, much appreciated.
looks like we are going to head over that time and if the weather is a bit heavy we might just do the jomson walk or similar as a plan b.

Thanks for post reply and have nice journey. If need any assist than off course tell me.
