What is the Best time to visit Everest Base Camp?

Trekking to Everest Base Camp is most picturesque, especially during spring (March to May) or fall (September to November).  Comfortable temperatures, clear skies, and predictable weather conditions make the trip safe and fun. As November passes, the weather becomes unpredictable. Take caution as the harsh weather and bitter cold of winter (January- February) is extremely cold.

Spring (March-June): Spring is the best season to visit Everest Base Camp short trek, lasting from March to May. It’s packed with other travelers but also offers pristine skies, golden dawn-lit Himalayan vistas, and temps that range from warm 20°C to freezing -20°C. But be ready for any lodging issues that may arise—high demand accompanies this Everest experience.

Monsoon (July-September):  At Everest Base Camp, the summer ( June- August) provides a special compromise: independence in return for uncertainty. Expect pleasant temperatures ranging from 22°C to 30°C on average. Nevertheless, be ready for some monsoon showers and muddy paths. Although the crowds lessen considerably, there are logistical issues with the sporadic heavy downpour. Summer may be a fulfilling, adventurous season, though, if you’re looking for peace and appreciate the rough, off-season beauty of the Himalayas. Simply be ready for a more adventurous Everest adventure by packing your rain gear.

Autumn (September- November): Trekkers are captivated by both spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) because of the pleasant autumnal temperatures, which hover around 17°C. Autumn is less popular and offers easier-to-secure flights and accommodations, even though it might not be as empty as spring. Therefore, spring offers breathtaking views and the excitement of traveling with others; alternatively, autumn offers more tranquility and easier planning. Either way, a magnificent Everest Base Camp experience is promised in both seasons.

Winter (December- February): In the winter, Everest Base Camp is a sparkling spectacle of snow-covered valleys and frosted summits. This is the time of year for bold adventurers who relish the untamed beauty and seclusion of the Himalayas—not for the weak of the heart. Even in the daytime, when the mercury drops to a bone-chilling -20°C, the pristine skies create beautiful vistas. Seeing the famous peaks with their winter crowns provides a special viewpoint on this holy mountain and is an amazing experience. Winter does, however, provide certain difficulties. Extra attention is needed on icy paths, and preparation and respect are required for uncertain weather. Locals advise against trekking during this time of year because so many teahouses and lodges close, making lodging difficult to come by.
