Everest Base Camp Weather

The best time to visit Everest Base Camp is either side of the late-May to mid-Sep monsoon season. Late Sep-Nov and Feb-May are the main trekking months with fairly stable conditions, good visibility and temps at Base Camp getting up to about -6°C. At Base Camp, you might also encounter groups of climbers in late April or early May preparing for their attempts on Everest’s summit. Although late Nov-Feb are extremely cold, around -15°C by day and much colder at night, clear skies are usually the norm with quieter trails and teahouses adding to the exhilarating feeling of wild and unadulterated isolation.

Flying From Kathmadu To Lukla: Update 2019

Due to renovation works to Tribhuvan International Airport’s (TIA) runway, flights from Kathmandu to Lukla were being diverted from TIA to Manthali Airport in Ramechhap from April 1st as an alternative route until June 30th 2019. However, taking into consideration the convenience for passengers and public demand, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has decided to continue with regular flights on the Ramechhap-Lukla route even after the completion of the runway rehabilitation works of Tribhuvan International Airport.

CAAN has decided to allow airline companies to operate regular flights on the Ramechhap-Lukla route. Manthali Airport, Ramechhap is 4-5 hour drive from Kathmandu. While the drive is a bit of a hassle, chances of delays and cancellations from Manthali Airport are very low as the only air traffic from that airport is to/from Lukla.

Final Words from Company:

Due to unpredictable weather conditions in the Himalayas, there may be unforeseen schedule changes in domestic flights to Lukla and from Lukla. The flights may be delayed for several hours or pushed back by a day or more, depending on the circumstances. Although this is rare, it can happen even during the best trekking seasons. As you know, high altitude weather conditions can be difficult to predict. Therefore, we strongly suggest that you plan for this by allowing for an extra day or two in Nepal after your trek, if possible. This will help ensure that you have some flexibility with regard to your trek. On the other hand, if everything goes according to plan, you will have time to enjoy other activities such as rafting, wildlife viewing, shopping, or just relaxing after your adventure.

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu and getting settled
When you arrive at the airport, Nepal Tours representative will be there to pick you up and bring you to the hotel. Depending on when you arrive, you’ll go through an orientation on either day one or day two.

Day 02: Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, trek to Phakding
Our adventure starts with a short flight to Lukla, including breathtaking views of the Himalaya region from the air, and a while-knuckle landing on Lukla’s mountain runway.  We’ll meet the rest of our crew at Lukla, and begin hiking up the Dudh Koshi valley on the way to Phakding.
Elevation: From 1300 metres to 2800 metres to 2656 metres |
Lukla Flight, Accommodation, Guide and Porters Included

Day 03: Trek From Phakding to Namche Bazaar
After leaving Phakding, we will cross the same river several times over high suspension bridges. It helps to avoid thinking about Indiana Jones movies here! Soon, we’ll pass Monjo and enter the Sagarmatha National Park. Once inside the Park the trail becomes steep, rising to Namche. Namche Bazaar is the chief trading village for the region, and an excellent place to find a few last Western luxuries, including Illy coffee and some amazing brownies! Better still, on a clear day you can see Everest itself from here.
Elevation: From 2656 metres to 3450 metres.
Accommodation, Guide and Porters Included

Day 04: Acclimatization Day at Namche Bazaar
Namche supports a host of shops, lodges and tea houses, and is an excellent place to grow used to moving around in the thin air nearly 3500m above sea level.

Day 08: From Pheriche to Lobuche
Today we begin the main trek again, climbing the steep Khumbu Glacier with Tawache and Cholatse peaks overhead. The boulder-strewn terminal moraine makes interesting and rugged terrain, and the top of the glacier is marked with numerous cairns, left to mark the passage of the Sherpas and climbers who have died conquering Everest. At the glacier’s top, the path levels out to a very gentle climb to Lobuche.

We will pass lesser glaciers, ice pinnacles, and the sometimes dangerous crevasses of the Khumbu along the way. The return trip to Gorak Shep is made along a higher path overlooking the Khumbu icefall and the South Col route.
Elevation: From 4930 metres to 5164 metres | Highest point: 5364 metres (Everest Base Camp)
Accommodation, Guide and Porters Included

Day 10: Ascent of Kala Pattar, descent to Dingboche
We’ll set off very early on day ten to make for the peak of Kala Pattar, and one of the most awe-inspiring views in the region. The land stretches out before us, from Everest itself to the Khumbu icefield. After a pause for rest, lunch and photographs, we begin the descent back to Dingboche.

If it were not for the altitude, the Everest base camp trek would be considered fairly moderate. However, when you take the altitude into consideration, the trek becomes quite difficult. On average you will be trekking 5 or 6 hours per day and you will need a good level of fitness. With some basic training we believe the EBC trek is achievable for most people.

Rivers, valleys, forests, suspension bridges, monasteries, Nepalese villages and, of course, hugely tall mountains make up most of the beautiful scenery on this trek.

The best time to trek Everest Base Camp is during the warmer and drier months from September to November and March through to late May.

Before committing to at least eleven days hiking in (generally) basic conditions, it’s a good idea to establish that you like hiking and don’t mind basic conditions, so that you can actually enjoy the experience when you do it. Bank a two- or, optimally, three-day hike to see how you feel about walking each day and being away from home comforts before you commit.

The Everest Base Camp trek is less physically strenuous than some people make out – although not a walk in the park. The main issue is going up and down steep slopes and steps, and so the best preparation is to go up and down lots and lots of stairs with the weight that you’ll be carrying when you trek.

The first rule of trekking Everest Base Camp is to step to the wall side when you meet a yak or mule train, since otherwise you can be knocked off the edge. The straight-in, straight-out route, though, is relatively danger-free: the path has been widened and in many places smoothed for trekkers, especially where it traces a sheer slope.

The main danger for most people doing the straight-in, straight-out route is altitude sickness (AKA Acute Mountain Sickness or AMS). For most people, this can be avoided by sleeping no more than 300 metres higher than you did the night before and taking an acclimatisation day every 1000 metres. Serious AMS is more common in folk doing group tours than in independent trekkers.

Other common injuries are twisted ankles and sprains. Rock falls, moraine and glacier crossings add significant risk to longer treks involving crossing high passes such as the Cho-La. As always, it’s unwise to trek solo in case you fall and can’t extricate yourself: people disappear on this route all the time.

Children as young as six and adults of over 70 have walked to Everest Base Camp, and the straight-in, straight-out trek is less demanding than you would think, provided you allow yourself the time to acclimatize to altitude that YOUR body needs, and listen to your body when it tells you to stop. Because of steep ascents and descents, rocky paths, rock steps and some moraine walking, the Everest Base Camp trek isn’t suitable for anyone with knee problems or weak ankles, while people carrying significant extra weight are likely to struggle with this at altitude. Anyone with heart trouble or lung problems should check with their doctor. Be aware that medical facilities on the trail are very, very basic

Distance Lukla to Everest base camp: 38.58 miles or 62 Kilometers 8 to 9 days walk in and a 3 to 4 day walk out. Walk in is slower due to the extra days needed to allow a persons body to adjust to the new altitudes.

Package tour with a Nepal Tours. This is about the second most popular way to arrange a trek to Everest Base Camp. Prices range per person from USD $1,400 up to $1,700 for an average 12 – 16 day trek. Price depends on your service and accommodation in the Mountain areas, if you stay luxury accommodation in the mountain the price will goes high but at in a normal accommodation the price will be the same as above.

Such a fantastic trip that I highly recommend! Couldn’t have asked for better guides and a better group of people to travel to Everest Base Camp with!. A challenging but incredibly rewarding trip with constantly changing, awe inspiring scenery. The better prepared you are physically, emotionally and organizationally the more you will enjoy your time in the mountains.

Hi, A Wonderful Everest Base Camp trek, Well organized by RB and Kulendra from Nepal Tours. Our guide were wonderful and excellent help. Thank you to all for making our trip so memorable. I would highly recommend the use of Nepal Tours to anyone want to Visit Nepal.

My daughter, my son, and I did the 14 days EBC trekking in December. It was just wonderful. It does get cold at night but during the day, with sun, it’s actually very pleasant. December seems to be a good month as you enjoy the trails and teahouses without being crowded, and it’s before the rainy season. We started hiking Dec 14 and finished by the 27th, which was right before the Christmas crowd showing up. We did Kalapathar the night before EBC for sunset, which is the best time to do it as you would have the most spectacular views of the Everest summit both before and during sunset. The company we used in Nepal was Nepal Tours. They were well organized and accommodating.

This was my first trip with Nepal Tours and I was very impressed with the efficient and hassle free organising of the 14 days Everest Base Camp Trek. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is contemplating it as I certainly found it to be extremely enjoyable and have come home with plenty of great memories from it.
