Best Season for Everest Base Camp Trek
Peak Season: Autumn in Nepal (September – November)
The King of all the seasons is autumn. During this period, the Everest region offers stunning views of mountain ranges and crystal clear sky. Additionally, this is also the perfect time to visit and explore Nepal because of the significant festival of all the Nepalese people falls on these months. The temperature range is ideal in between 15 to 25 degree Celsius.
Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour’s Opinion:
If you’re planning for any sorts of trekking routes in Nepal whether it’s Everest region, Annapurna, Manaslu, Annapurna, and Kanchenjunga, we would highly recommend you to book the Trek in between mid- October to Mid November. The chance of rainfall is very less, which ultimately adds happiness to the trekking routes.
High Season: Spring (March to May)
If Autumn is King, then here is the queen for it. Spring is the cheery blossom season in Nepal. The temperature is moderate, ranging from 15 to 20-degree Celsius in Kathmandu. Not just the parks would be covered by flowers but also the mountain slopes will be covered by varieties of rhododendron flower.
Low Season: Monsoon (June – August)
Monsoon is hot and humid with rainfall in the high elevation. The average rainfall throughout the country is 500-550 mm in this season. The skies will be disturbed by clouds blocking the views of mountain ranges. It’s found that the weather is still bright even in this season too because the climate of the Everest region is unpredictable.
Low Season: Winter (December to February)
Winter is harsh, especially in the Everest region of Nepal. The average temperature ranges from 10 to -15 degree celsius. The nights get colder, and the temperature may go to -20 degree celsius. The speed of wind fluctuates from 10 to 12 mph. That’s why these seasons are particularly useful for trekking in lower elevation. The sky is clear with snowfall in the high mountains.
