During these seasons, the weather and the temperature are the most favorable. And, offer the trekkers with best memories. At this time, you will have the least chances of rain, storms, and snow. So, you will get to enjoy the trek to the fullest.

And the temperature is quite bearable where you will feel neither too hot nor too cold. Days are generally hot while nights are chilling but pleasant. Also, due to less precipitation, you will get to enjoy the sharp, undisturbed views of the peaks and surrounding landscapes.

Plus, during the spring season, you will be awe-stricken by the forests lighting up in rhododendrons and magnolias in the lower elevations on the trek. During these months you will get to walk past the Sagarmatha National Park smiling at its best.

However, the trek is possible in the summer and winter season as well. During summer, you may have to encounter rain and muddy trails with leech attacks. While in winter you may feel much cold in the diminishing temperatures.

Difficulty during Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp trek is a moderate grade trek in the slopes and rocky terrains of the Khumbu valley.

On this trek, you walk for around 10-12 days on the high altitudes. Every day you cover around 15 km on the route. So, many think this trek to be much difficult and undoable. But with the appropriate packing and the good stamina with a healthy heart, this trek is not difficult at all.

But, you must be very careful while ascending on the route. You must walk gradually and maintain your pace. Take enough rest and stay hydrated. Otherwise, you have the high chances of getting altitude sickness.

Plus, since the weather of the mountains is really unpredictable you may have to face frequent weather changes there. The weather changes swiftly every hour. So, a warm sunny morning could bring dark clouds, snow, and blizzards. So, you must go prepared to encounter any possible hindrances during the trek.

Walk cautiously! Pack well and prepare yourself physically and mentally for any possible difficulties. Then you will complete this trek in success and contentment.

Also, during the trek in peak seasons, you may find difficulty in finding rooms and convenient flights for the trip. So, it is better to book the trip in advance.

Everest Region FAQS

    I spent very memorable days in the Everest region in Nepal. I used to dream to see this highest peak of the world and now I arrested it in my camera. My guide arranged everything and helped me a lot. He did not let me feel tired and boring. I have read about the Manaslu region and willing to go there with this company again. I like to make a strong recommendation.

Keshab and his crew were not just there but helped with sympathy and fear made what could have been a true nightmare, especially in my weakened condition, a manageable situation. Our guide sudip was super professional and knew everything about the Everest regions. Absolutely recommend Index Adventure for Everest Base Camp.

    We experienced excellent customer service from this company.in Kathmandu, there are tons of adventure companies to choose from but it can be hard to differentiate but we did this one certainly. The trip was incredible and at any moment if I needed to contact Keshab he would reply almost immediately. the agency was very friendly and patient, provided us with a lot of great information and ideas and together we planned a trek tailored to our specific needs (including scheduling specific rest days and places during the trek). The Guide and porter provided to us by the agency, they were accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. He even had suggestions to make our trip more enjoyable and easier for us. I highly recommend this agency thank you’re all helped by our dream to succeed Everest Base Camp Trekking.

    I highly recommend Index adventure as a trekking company. I have the poise that their experienced guides would improve the enjoyment and safety of any trek which they provide service. During the trek planning, I had many questions for keshab .he was always enormously patient, responsive and helpful. From the since we arrive in Kathmandu airport index adventure were very accommodating about airport pickups. They made it as easy for us as it possibly could be. In the trek, they provide us rental gear (down jackets, sleeping bags, duffel bags etc) was excellent quality. We save some of our budgets too. The food and accommodation were of much better quality than we had expected. Typical dishes were veg fried rice/noodles/pasta or potatoes, veg, and egg. The meat was available but not recommended during the trek it was bad taste. Our guide madan was super brilliant. He was serious about our safety and our health and he is joker very funny and great company. I would not hesitate to recommend Index Adventure for any trek. I will definitely use Index adventure for a future trek in Nepal.
