In high mountain region, temperature considerably depends upon altitude range higher the altitude lowers the temperature. The best trekking season with most suitable weather conditions, trek in Everest base camp extends from September to November (autumn season) and from March to June (spring season). Within these seasons, the daytime temperatures are generally comfortable, with clear sky, warm climate conditions, and superb view of mountains provides fascinating and exciting holiday experience. The environment is dry and average temperatures during the day varying around 10c to 15c, still may go up, but during the night may drop to minus 5c or progressively lowers the higher we go (if weather becomes cloudy). The greatest festivals occasion in Nepal also falls like Dashain, Tihar, Manerendu during these seasons. Another reason for best trekking time during spring season is to observe blooming flowers throughout the Himalayas. Trek from December to January (winter season) is rewarding to do trekking in Everest.
Despite colder climate conditions, skies are usually very clear, mountains views are at their best. Nights will be very cold with temperatures go down to minus 10c to minus 15c especially during the bad weather and cloudy at highest altitude but days are pleasant and sunny. The trials are also much less busy at this time. Rainy most of days affects trekking in Everest base camp during the summer or monsoon (June to Aug) season. The nights are comparatively colder than the days ranging its temperatures (between 5c to 10 c during the nights) and (between 10c to 25c during the day). The morning is usually clear, with clouds building up during the afternoon and disappearing at night. Trekkers while planning trek to Everest base camp must bear in the mind that weather in the high Himalaya journey can accurately be unpredictable. It is requested to check out weather forecasting before booking trek.

Other Information


Everest Base Camp Trekking Useful Info

Please be advised: We recommend adding extra days in your itinerary as a safety margin for your return flight home. The air traffic from Kathmandu to Lukla, and then Lukla to Kathmandu is frequently behind schedule and this may cause onward delays. Sometimes flights get backed up for a days. In these circumstances, we will do our best to any problems, and re-schedule flights to and from Lukla as available. However, we must caution you about the possibility of postponements of flights and even cancellations. We recommend that you schedule at least an extra 2 days cushion in your itinerary to avoid problems with international flights from Nepal. In the event of delays, we can arrange a helicopter at your request at a cost of around USD 500-1000 per person, depending on demand and capacity. It is also very likely that no delays will be incurred. In any case, we can arrange additional activities with your extra time in Nepal.

Please Note: The Everest Base Camp trek includes fixed departure dates from Kathmandu and can be tailored to accommodate your specific requests and schedule. Please review our designated departure dates for this trek and if they do not suit your timeframe, then let us know how we can arrange a trek that is convenient for you.The itinerary listed above is a general guideline; please be advised that it might be necessary to modify it due to external factors beyond our means including and not limited to the following: unstable weather, accessibility and availability of lodging and campsites, unforeseen governmental, trail and ecological conditions and other circumstances beyond our control. Although, it is improbable that changes will occur that would significantly alter the original itinerary, we cannot be held accountable for the results of delays or changes beyond our control. In the event of an Itinerary adjustment or need to redirect to other trails and areas, the Leader Guide will ultimately make the final choice on the best rerouting after consulting with the group members and keeping in mind the interests of the party as a whole. If an alteration is necessary, then we will certainly do everything we can to diminish the effects.
