The ideal season to travel

January: 

Nepal’s trekking off-season is in full effect in January, with low tourist numbers across the nation. The spectacular views and the fact that you’ll have the trails to yourself make this a surprisingly fantastic time to walk across the trails if you’re prepared for chilly temperatures.

 

February:

While much of Nepal remains freezing in early February, the temperature begins to rise later in the month. The mountains are still cold, and there will be snow, but winter is coming to an end. The average February temperature in Namche Bazaar (11,290 feet/3440 meters) is 43°F (6°C), which isn’t too cold but certainly not warm.

March:

March marks the start of spring, one of Nepal’s two high seasons. While temperatures in the mountains will likely remain chilly, and snow will likely remain in certain areas, pathways will begin to soften. In March, trekkers returned in greater numbers, and there are numerous reasons for this. While March isn’t as crowded as April, the normal Everest Base Camp (EBC) route soon overflows during this season. Crimson rhododendrons can be seen in March month.

 

April: 

April, as of March, is a popular trekking month in Nepal. The monsoon rains are still some weeks away, and temperatures are normally pleasant or at least not too chilly in the high Himalayas. In April, temperatures in the Himalayas are still cooler: 34°F (1°C) to 53°F (12°C) in Namche Bazaar (11,290 feet/3440 meters), an important destination on the EBC climb. At higher elevations, temperatures will be cooler.

 

May:

 

May marks the beginning of the Everest climbing season, as weather conditions on the mountain are most ideal at this time of year, although these conditions are very different from what normal trekkers will find at lower altitudes. Although the number of trekkers in Nepal decreases in May as humidity and temperatures rise in preparation for the monsoon season, the trail to EBC is an exception. For nature lover, May and June is the best time to trek.

 

June: 

 

By mid-June, monsoon rains had arrived, and most trekkers had left the paths. The conclusion of the Everest-climbing season normally occurs in the first half of the month. However, even once the rains begin, it hardly ever rains all day every day, so if you’re prepared for rainy weather and understand that humidity and rain clouds may hamper your views, June isn’t a bad month to trek in the Everest Region. Furthermore, the higher you climb in height, the less probable it is that it will rain.

 

July:

In July, Nepal’s high rainfall keeps most trekkers off the trails. However, individuals who are well-prepared with good rain gear and are willing to accept some potential travel delays can still enjoy their climb to Everest Base Camp. In July, the temperature in Namche Bazaar is pleasant, with an average high of 60°F (16°C). The further you travel into the mountains, the cooler it gets and the less rain you get, however, it will almost surely pour at lower elevations. There’s also a danger of mudslides and landslides disrupting hiking trails. The most important festival of Sherpas, “Dumji festival” falls during the end of June or early July.

 

August:

 

The monsoon season in Nepal begins in mid-June and lasts until mid-September. In July and August, the Everest Region, like the rest of the country, receives the most yearly rainfall. It also has the hottest temperatures; while the high Himalaya is never ‘hot,’ normal highs in August in Namche Bazaar are around 60°F (16°C).

The higher you go into the mountains, the cooler it gets and the less rain there is. In August, there’s also a danger that landslides would close hiking routes and make paths muddy.

 

September:

 

By mid-to-late September, the monsoon rains will have passed, and the weather will be suitable for trekking in Nepal once more. Even though excessive humidity may hide some mountain views, there’s still a possibility to see amazing views early in the morning. In addition, in September, the popular Everest region trek is less crowded than later in the autumn season.

 

October:

 

The month of October is the busiest for trekkers in Nepal. The weather is quite stable, with a clean, rain-free sky providing superb mountain views. However, crowds are at an all-time high, with the Everest region Trek being the most popular in the country. When visiting the Everest region in October, it is critical to plan properly far ahead as possible. In late Oct or early Nov full-moon, people in Everest region celebrate the famous 19 day long colorful festival “Mani Rimdu” in Tengboche Monastery, but the last 3 days of this festival is only open for public.

 

November:

 

In November, there is extremely little possibility of rain in the Everest region—it is the driest month of the year. This means that humidity is at an all-time low, and the chances of seeing clear mountain views are greater than at any other time of year. Temperatures are a few degrees lower than they were in October, with a low of 26°F (-3°C) in Namche Bazaar (11,290 feet/3440 meters) with a high of 48°F (9°C) on average. Temperatures will be even cooler at higher elevations. However, given the low chance of rain and clear skies, November is the greatest month of the year to hike to Everest in terms of weather.

 

December:

 

As winter approaches, the trekking trails become empty except for the most courageous adventurers. However, if you’re properly equipped for cold temperatures, December is a great season to walk to Everest Base Camp.  The weather in December isn’t quite as freezing as it is in January, but the difference isn’t significant. This month, the average high in Namche Bazaar is 44°F (7°C), while the average low is 21°F (-6°C). Because Namche is only 11,290 feet (3,440 meters) above sea level, temperatures will be much cooler higher up.


Flight to Lukla

Almost every trip begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla, a small single-landing runway airport high in the Himalayas. As it is the easiest way for your trek to the hotel Everest view.

 

  •  Lukla Airport is also known as the most dangerous airport in the world. This airport, which is only open when the weather is calm, and visibility is excellent.

 

  • The Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is about 30 min and the flight from Manthali to Lukla is about 20-25 min. Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla by helicopter is about 45 min.
  • It’s impossible to say whether your Lukla flight will be canceled or not. If this occurs, your trip may be extended by one or two days. So, plan ahead and add buffer days to your itinerary to ensure you don’t miss your international flight.

 

  • Flights to and from Lukla are currently operated from Manthali Airport in Ramechhap rush hours at Kathmandu Airport during the high season (spring and autumn). Kathmandu is 132 kilometers (4 hours and 30 minutes) away.

 

  • Helicopters have a little more flexibility when it comes to arriving at Lukla and can frequently make the flight in weather or visibility that a small plane would not be able to make. It is sometimes doable to switch your flight to a helicopter, but this can be expensive and there is no guarantee that you will arrive on time.

 


Altitude sickness

Altitude sickness is a sneaky monster that may attack even the fittest trekkers. These demands doing everything in your power to prepare for altitude trekking and taking things carefully throughout your Everest region journey. With increasing altitude, the amount of available oxygen decreases, which is the primary cause of high-altitude sickness

Your body requires time to adjust to thin air, so start at a lower altitude and work your way up. Some of the symptoms of Altitude sickness are:

  • Increased breathing.
  • Increased urination.
  • Restless sleep.
  • Periodic breathing at night because of altitude.
  • Dehydration.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Extreme fatigue.
  • Respiratory failure.
  • Cerebral edema.
  • Coma.

 

Certain care should be made to ensure that the situation does not worsen. However, if the symptoms worsen, you may need to return to a lower height and seek medical help. There are, however, several other precautions you may take while trekking in the Everest region to lessen your risk of altitude sickness.

 

  • Trekkers can modify their bodies by slowly and gradually climbing, as our bodies require time to adjust to the oxygen level. At least one day of acclimatization rest is required for high altitude trekking, and you should go as high as possible before returning to a lower height for the night.

 

  • You should do various strength training exercises such as running, cycling, jogging, push-ups and going to the gym to acquire strength and stamina for your adventure.

 

  • As the air gets increasingly thin, an increase in elevation reduces oxygen levels, and in the Everest region trek, an increase in altitude also means less vegetation. The consumption of alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, and tobacco decreases the body’s water content.

 

  • The greatest remedy is to always stay hydrated. On your walk, instead of drinking cooled water, drink warm water.

 

  • Diamox is the most effective altitude sickness medication; thus, you should bring a subscription with you on the trek. However, you should consult with your physician to see whether it is advantageous.

So, here you have it: everything you need to know about altitude sickness before trekking to Everest Base Camp. Please contact us if you have any questions.

 


Things to know about Everest region

Drinking-Water

Especially for trekkers, it is very necessary to hydrate your body at a higher altitude than in lower elevations to avoid dehydration and altitude sickness. Lack of fluid can be the main hindrance during the trek. You should hydrate your body with at least 3-4 liters of water on a daily basis (Tea, soup, or normal drinking water).

Throughout the trek, you will come across tap and spring water, but it is not safe to drink without purifying it. You can buy the plastic bottle water in the teahouses but becomes expensive as you climb in the higher altitude, and it pollutes the local ecosystem, therefore we recommend you to use a Reusable water bottle or water pouch favorable for both hot and cold water. During this trek, you may be charged from 0.50 $ to 5$ for a sealed water bottle. In Namche per liter of water bottle cost 1$.

Here are some ways that you can use to make the water drinkable.

  1. Boiled water

Boiling water is the best way to purify the water. As we are climbing to a higher altitude you need to boil the water for about 3-minute and season it with a pinch of salt before drinking. The Teahouse provide free cold water, however heated water cost 1 USD per liter.

  1. Purification tablets or electrolyte powder.

Purification tablets like chlorine or iodine tablets are commonly used tablets by trekkers to disinfect the water. 1 tablet is enough for a liter of water. It takes around 30 min for the tablets to dissolve and become drinkable. Water purify by tablets may leave a taste in your mouth.

Electrolyte powder is another option. Electrolyte powder is a better way to purify water than tablets because electrolyte powder contains minerals such as salt, Potassium, Magnesium, which are important for your body during the trek.

  1. UV Light water purifier/ SteriPEN.

It is a simple, effective, economic and environment-friendly way to purify water. It kills the bacteria and virus within 10 sec by exposing them to ultraviolent light using Steripen, without changing the flavor of water. This is highly recommended method of purifying water.

Responsible Travel

As the Everest region is not only the gateway to Mount Everest but also renowned for its traditional culture and eco-friendly environment. All travelers should travel responsibly in these regions. You must respect the local people, their culture, religion and try to limit any harmful acts that will have an adverse impact on their culture and environment. We expect you to properly dispose of all the plastic waste (food warmers, plastic water bottles etc.). On your way to Everest Base Camp, you may encounter any rare species (Lophophorus, Musk Deer, Himalayan Tahr, Blood Pleasant, Himalayan monals, Martens, Tibetan Snowcock, Golden Eagle and some other) and you should avoid disturbed them. When visiting monasteries, you must follow to the monastery’s norms. Your responsible travel will help Nepal achieve long-term sustainable tourism.
