Thorung La pass

Hi, I am currently in Pokhara and I was hoping to start the Annapurna circuit trek on the 18th of April but I have heard that the Thorung La pass is closed due to snow. I was wondering when the recommended start date would be so that when I reach the pass it would be open? Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Jessica,

I cannot give you any absolute safe advices but I have talked to a friend doing the Circuit who passed Thorung La a few days ago. Yes, there was some snow and apparently it has been a rather long winter. However, it was doable without being a very experienced mountaineer.

I am planning to cross Thorung La roughly at the same time as you do and I hope snow conditions won’t be too severe (although one can never predict high mountain weather).

Good luck!
