Rhododendron Trek Annapurna Region - 9 Days

Rhododendron Trek Annapurna Region

If you love flowers, then doing a Rhododendron trek in Nepal can be a glorious experience for you. Rhododendron is called Laligurans in Nepali. It is the national flower of this country. You can find them in abundance during the spring season in the hilly regions of Nepal. Due to their huge size and distribution, they tend to cover the whole hills during their peak blooming season. The sheer beauty of hills covered with rhododendrons cannot be described in words and has to be seen to be believed. They will simply take your breath away and fill even your darkest mood with joy.

In Nepal, apart from being the national flower, rhododendron is also popular for many other reasons. It is believed that this flower brings good luck, and so local people use it during various ceremonies and initiations. Rhododendrons are also famous for their medicinal properties among the locals here. The juice from rhododendron is used at many places in Nepal to treat diseases such as diabetes, jaundice, headaches, and stomach problems.

The Annapurna region, the Langtang region, and the Kanchenjunga region are especially famous for rhododendrons. Depending on which region you prefer, we can help prepare an itinerary tailored for a rhododendron trip. The month of March up to May is generally the best for doing this trip. This is also the season when it is the most ideal time to visit Nepal since it is spring season and the weather is likely to be just right. Also the skies will be clear most of the day, giving you plenty of opportunities to grab breathtaking views not only of the hills covered with rhododendrons, but also of the faraway mountain ranges.
