Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek, but due to its high altitude and Himalayas climate, you need to choose the best time to suit your need. Almost every day you have to walk higher than 3000+ meter above sea level and six to eight-hour continuous walk. Generally, September, October, and November (Autumn season) and March, April, and May ( Spring season ) are considered as the best season for Everest Base Camp Trek.
With our years of experience, the best season for Everest Base Camp Trek might differ as per your purpose and adventure level too. Snow and cold lover choose Autumn season. Whereas the lover of green nature, blossoming of nature and those who want to trek in hot weather like to trek in Spring season. On the other hand, some trekkers choose the Monsoon and Winter season to avoid the crowd in the narrow trekking trail and to enjoy the peace and wild nature of the Himalayas.
