Can Everest Base Camp Trekking be done throughout the year?
Yes. Everest Base Camp trekking can be done throughout the year. However, the accepted answer to this, stating the best seasons for doing Everest Base Camp Trekking are from March to May (Spring) and September to November (Autumn). During these months, weather remains stable with clear blue sky offering us the surreal views of mountains soaring high. The summer months from June to August are also beautiful but the trek can be affected by the monsoon rains. Winter season (December to February) can be a great period for trekking to Everest Base Camp with good preparations, proper clothing and pre - arrangements for cold and weather.
Everest Base Camp Trekking in Spring (March – May)
Spring season (March – May) is the perfect time to do the Everest Base Camp trekking in Nepal and to experience the adventure to the foothills of world highest mountain, Mount Sagarmatha (8848.86m). Spring season offers magnificent views, mild temperature, and remarkable adventure experiences. This season succeeds winter because of which first weeks of March will be quite cold. After that, temperature begins to warm up at Everest region and small buds of grasses start blinking from the ground. Spring is the season where most of the biodiversity blossoms up again and we witness varying species of flora and fauna along the trekking trail. Temperature on a normal day ranges from 10 – 14 degrees and at night temperature can drop upto 3 degrees. Undoubtedly, spring season is a joyful time for beginning Everest Base Camp trek.
Everest Base Camp weather in Monsoon (June – August)
Early June marks the start of Monsoon (Summer) and ends by the end of August. The summer months from June to August are also beautiful, but the trek can be affected by the monsoon rains. Monsoon is regarded as off season for trekking in Everest region including Everest Base Camp too. However, trek to Everest Base Camp is still possible. As the name implies, summer (monsoon) days are hotter. So, we suggest wearing lightweight T-shirts and shorts while hiking. Monsoon indicates heavy rainfall and unclear surroundings which stands as an obstacle for getting a clear view of Khumbu Himalaya. Also, the trekking trails become wet and slippery due to frequent rain. The frequent rainfall in monsoon makes the EBC trek more difficult and because of rain, mosquitoes and leeches are found everywhere during this season. Temperature on a normal day ranges from 15 and reach up to 22 degrees and during night, temperature falls down to 5 degree to 0 degree (max).
Everest Base Camp Trekking in Autumn (September – November)
Following spring, Autumn (September – November) is the ideal season for Everest Base Camp trekking. September, October and November falls under this season. These months are known for sunny and warm weather and stable and outstanding mountain views. Autumn rewards the outdoor enthusiasts with a pleasant afternoon temperature for hiking. Nights get colder as we gain elevation but it is endurable. During autumn, you’ll witness some of the best views of towering Himalayan peaks dominating the Khumbu valley. Thousands of trekkers visit Everest Base Camp in this season as autumn probably has the favorable trekking weather and conditions. Even in autumn season, October is the busiest month for trekking in Everest Base Camp. Days are balmy and temperature in afternoon ranges to 12 – 15 degrees. During the night, temperature drops down to below zero degree on high altitudes (above 3500m).
