Every one of us dreams of visiting the famous Everest region. Tourists also want to get some luxury on their expedition trip. Considering both factors, we offer an ultimate Everest Base Camp Trekking package with luxurious accommodation facilities during your journey.
Other than trekking to the base camp of the highest mountain peak, you will experience sightseeing on your trip. However, to make the most of your trek, you must know the best time to visit here.
Selection of the Best Time for an EBC Trek
The most suitable time for the Everest Base Camp Trekking depends on the places you visit or the sightseeing you want to experience. The trek is popular in the entire Nepal Himalayan region. It offers an endowed and manageable trek compared to any other high-altitude trek in the country.
Trekkers may travel through different landscapes and find several wildlife creatures, cultural heritages, and close views of the entire Everest range.One can view Mount Lhotse, Mount Nuptse, Mount Cho Oyu, Mount Pumo Ri, and Mount Ama Dablam, along with Mount Everest. Furthermore, sightseeing varies depending solely on the selected season, for which you choose the EBC trek as follows-
September to November
September to November is the most preferable season to go for Everest Base Camp Trekking and other trekking activities in the Mount Everest region. Travelers accumulate here to experience the revitalizing and pristine environment after the monsoon months. During this time, the weather remains pleasant in lower mountain regions and the daytime temperature remains at about 15 degrees Celsius.
On the other hand, nighttime temperatures often go beyond freezing. The temperature will drop significantly while ascending at high altitude. During this period, the views are apparent with reduced rainfall and plenty of sunny days. Especially the night sky gives you mesmerizing views with the display of stars.
March to May
Many trekkers find this season appealing for trekking based on colorful rhododendrons across the way with warm surrounding temperatures. Also, the snow melted away largely in low mountain elevations to make the period a preferable trekking season. Especially, you get a clear sky view in April with striking red hues covered by rhododendron flowers. Daytime temperatures in low mountain regions remain about 10 degrees while nights may be chilly.
December to February
December to February is the coldest season to perform Everest Base Camp Trekking activities. Daytime may be chilly while temperatures during the nighttime may go below the freezing point. A few teahouses remain open during winter months to provide shelter and warm meals.
The winter season brings cloudy daytime, because of which you may not get clear mountain views. In contrast, trekkers who love blossoms may choose this season, as rhododendrons often bloom near the end weeks of the winter season. They give beautiful sights and cover the entire hillside with white, pink, and bright red flowers.
June to August
The monsoon season in Nepal commences in the middle of June. We do not recommend trekking during this season. The southern areas have heavy rainfall, which leads to uncomfortable and slippery trails. Besides, the entire Everest region has substantial rainfall of about 80mm in one month. Regardless of the trekking challenges, many people prefer monsoon months to observe the vibrant flora that adds to the natural beauty of the trek.
Challenges in Your Everest Base Camp Trek
Once you get information about the best season for the Everest Base Camp Trekking, you must be well-versed in your trekking challenges. A few challenges include the following-
Dealing with High Altitudes
Choosing a luxury EBC trek instead of a classic one, you experience a comfortable journey with high-quality accommodation facilities, a few amenities, and experienced guides. However, you cannot avoid dealing with high altitudes regardless of your luxury or normal Everest Base Camp Trekking. The trek will take you to a huge elevation of more than 5,000 meters to cause altitude-related sickness. Furthermore, you will hike or walk for many hours per day and the length of walk per day may vary.
Steep and Rocky Trekking Trails
Other than walking for long hours, you will experience challenging trekking trails with steep descents and ascents. Also, you need to follow a few rocky terrains and various uneven paths. For this, you must be physically fit enough and possess a good quality of trekking boots.
Unexpected Weather Conditions
You will find unexpected weather conditions in the entire Mount Everest region. Depending on your chosen season, you may experience windy weather, cold temperatures, and snowfalls occasionally in high altitudes. Our luxury trek gives you better trekking clothes and gear but you must be prepared to face variable weather conditions.
