March in Nepal


I am from Riga, Latvia! I am going to Nepal in the 11th March and 26th March back. I think to visit the Anapurna's region. Is it a good choice? Maybe you can suggest something better? I am afraid that March is too cold month for treking. I'd like to see the famous rhododendron forests. Is mid-March rhododendrons in bloom? I have read that in March, the mountains are in the mist. How big a problem is fog and mist?

Thank you!

Gorepani poon hill trek is one of the best place to see rhododendrom flower. Its netional flower of Nepal. Its not that much cold in March. Yes it will be bloomed in March so you will enjoy it.

Have a nice trek.

Good luck

Annapurna definitely won't be a bad choice to trek in March. I am sure that you will have great weather and time in Nepal during March. March is not that cold, it is less colder than October - November so you will be OK weather wise.

I do not agree that Langtang is better choice for watching blooming rhododendron flowers but Annapurna is the best choice; particularly Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek including Tadapani. Forests around there are full of rhododendrons and I think you will see lovely rhododendron forests.

I was there this March/April and it was wonderful. Warm trekking days, hillsides pink & white with Rhododendrons, walking through forests of them, with daphne upderfoot.

Cold nights & early mornings, but soon warmed up to short tee shirts weather. In 3 weeks, we only had 1 day of rain and a couple of passing showers.

Enjoyed it so much, I'm heading back next year.

Trekking For Annapurna in march is good and Rhododendron also nice there .when i was in Kanchenjunga trek from Basantapur to Taplejung through Milke danda it was one of the great Rhododendron. if you like to see the best flower you can visit there and you can taste the Rhododendron Wine there.

I did a short Annapurna trek at the end of March this year and the rhododendrons, magnolia and daphne were spectacular and it is not too cold. During the day is pleasant but with some rain and some mornings were foggy but there was also mornings with great views. I think it is a great time to trek, but so do lots of other people!
