The annual monsoon runs from June to the end of August but moonstone trekking is still a comfort to make sure short 2 days up to 7 days. Despite monsoon, trekking is still a good time to visit Nepal. There are areas in the North of Nepal that have little or no rainfall at this time (Upper Mustang and Dolpo). These are restricted areas, for conservation reasons and so the permits are a little more expensive but the amazing scenery and culture of these areas makes them worthy of being called some of the most beautiful areas in Nepal. Upper Mustang was until relatively recently a separate kingdom and its deserts like landscape and strong Tibetan Buddhist culture provide a landscape completely different to that you find in other areas in Nepal. This is the land of monasteries, Chortens, nomadic goat herders and butter tea.
The Annapurna region has many types of an ethic group (Mager, Poon, Gurung, Brahmin and Chhetri) and few of them they speak their own language and they have different festivals to other groups. Here you can see a wide variation of landscapes and cross the world's second highest pass 'Thorong La'. In August there is the Janaipurnima festival where pilgrims trek to the sacred of the village of Muktinath in the Annapurna region and Goseikunda lake in the Langtang region. There are many festivities at this time and in Muktinath the local horsemen race in the streets. Muktinath is one of themost sacred area in the world for both buddhists and Hindus. Here they worship together with the natural gas fires and temples with 108 taps that is you shower each one is said to wash away your sin.
A shorter trek closer to Pokhara is to Ghorepani. The Ghandruk trekking route is one of the best trekking routes in good weather as within a few days walking you get see many mountains and localisations. From Ghorepani, you can leave in the early hours of the morning to trek to Poonhill. This is the name of the viewpoint at 3210m to watch the sunrise over Dhaulagiri (the 7th highest mountain in the world) and Annapurna South (also over 8000m). After Ghorepani, you can see many waterfalls, mountain villages, local farming, rhododendron forest as well as enjoying the tranquil environment.
I would say that Annapurna and Langtang region is a wonderful destination for student groups because there are so many different things to see and it's not that expensive to visit and besides that, there is a great opportunity for them to learn about the area's culture, religions, traditions, and way of life.
