Everest Base Camp Best Time of The Year

This post includes something very interesting fact about weather changes, which you can’t find anywhere online as I am not only going to talk about regular trekking season in Nepal which you can find anywhere online but exclusively, I am going to discuss the impact of Globel warming and weather changes in the Himalayas which is directly going to affect your Everest Base Camp trek Itinerary and your mission. Hopefully, this article will give you some idea on planning Everest base camp trek in the best time of the year. If you have any questions about this article, please do not hesitate to post a comment at the bottom of this page.

September to December (High Season)

If you are travelling to Nepal for the high altitude trek in the Himalayas such as EBC, Manaslu, and Annapurna I strongly suggest travelling from mid-October to until mid-December. Although Wikipedia says September-November is the best time but weather change is real especially country like us with the verities of natural diversity we can feel a constant weather change. The month of September was supposed to be the clean and nice weather but past few year we are challenging non-stop rain throughout the month. Travelling to Everest Base Camp within certain time frame makes a lot difficult if you get stuck waiting for a flight to Lukla and a lot of time this happen due to the bad weather.

March to May (High season)

Planning a trek to EBC during Spring season would be the best. due to the just past winter If you especially start the trek on early March gigantic size of snow covered mountain looks much closer than you could imagine. This is also a great time to meet Everest Expedition crew on the base camp if you managed to be there in March. The month of May is the best way to avoid traffic in the Everest region. A lot of website and travel guide says that the month of May brings rain in the country.

1. The Best time of the year during fall and winter season would start from mid-October to until Mid December.
2. The second best time would start from mid-March to until Mid May.
3. Best time to trek to EBC with less traffic along the way would be around first 3 weeks of December.
4. The second best time to trek EBC with less traffic along the way would be May to until the first two weeks of June.
