About Trip

“Ultimate destination of the world for trekkers, hikers and mountaineers"

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the stunning Himalayan landscapes, experience the unique culture of the Sherpa people, and stand in awe of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest. The trek is an endurance test that will push you to your limits, but the rewards are well worth the effort - from the breathtaking mountain vistas to the unforgettable cultural immersion.

To reach the Everest region, trekkers and mountaineers often take a scenic mountain flight from Kathmandu or Ramechhap airport. Due to traffic congestion in Kathmandu Tribhuvan International airport (TIA), flights are sometimes diverted to Ramechhap. After a short flight, the trek kicks off in Lukla, and the route passes through colorful Sherpa villages, tea houses, cultivated farmlands, mani walls, stupas, significant gompas, meandering crystal-clear rivers, waterfalls, high suspension bridges, and forests with stunning views of snow-capped mountains.

The trek takes around 11-12 days to complete and offers an unforgettable experience for those who are up for the challenge. It is not just a physical challenge but also a journey of self-discovery and cultural immersion, where trekkers can experience the natural beauty, local culture, and unique lifestyle of the people living in the region. The trek takes place in the Sagarmatha National Park, which is home to various species of flora and fauna. A trek to the base camp of the world's highest peak combines the beauty of the Himalayas with the cultural heritage of the Sherpa people, making it a truly unforgettable experience for thousands of trekkers and mountaineers each year.

Trip Highlights

Travel insurance: As a traveler, it is advisable to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance package that covers potential medical issues, personal accidents, emergency helicopter evacuation, loss or damage of personal belongings, and trip cancellations, especially if you are planning to trek to high altitudes up to 5,500 meters, such as Everest Base Camp. It is also important to ensure that the insurance covers the cost of cancellation for both your international flight and the trek. The minimum recommended coverage amount is USD 100,000. Many insurance companies offer travel insurance services online, so you can easily find a plan that meets your needs.

What Type Of Insurance Should I Get?

It is essential for foreign travelers to secure insurance coverage while trekking or climbing in Nepal. Although trekking in Nepal is generally safe, travel insurance is compulsory for mountaineering activities in Nepal. The trip can pose physical challenges and hazards, particularly at high altitudes where altitude sickness is prevalent among trekkers and climbers, especially those who have not acclimatized properly. Physical injuries can also occur on mountain trails or during climbing activities, and in emergency situations, foreign trekkers or climbers may need to be rescued by helicopter and transported to hospitals in Kathmandu, which can be costly if the traveler does not have insurance coverage.

We strongly recommend purchasing a travel insurance package that covers high altitudes up to 5,500 meters, potential medical issues, natural disasters, personal accidents, emergency helicopter evacuation, loss or damage of personal belongings, and trip cancellations. The minimum recommended coverage amount is USD 100,000. There are many insurance companies that offer travel insurance services online. You should compare plans to find the one that best meets your needs.

What is the weather like in Nepal and what are the average temperatures?

As Nepal's topography is divided into three geographical regions - Terai, Hills, and Mountains - each region experiences different temperatures during different seasons. Below is a tabular illustration of temperature changes throughout the different seasons in Nepal, which will allow you to better understand the changing weather conditions.

Seasons               Minimum temperature (approx) Maximum temperature (approx) Weather Condition

Spring                   4°C/ 39°F (Mountain)                      20°C/ 68°F (Mountain) Moderate with occasional rain

Summer               12°C/ 53°F (Mountain)                     25°C/ 77°F (Mountain) Extreme high with heavy rain

What Is The Best Time To Trek In Nepal?

After a thorough analysis of all the seasons, it has been suggested that autumn is the best time of the year to trek in Nepal. The mild temperatures from September to November make the trekking experience more enjoyable. During this time of the year, trekking routes throughout the country are jam-packed with travelers from all around the world.

However, as mid-December is generally the holiday season in most countries, including the United States, there is a spike in the number of international tourists during early winter as well. Interestingly, to make the holiday season even more special, travel companies offer some of the best holiday destination packages during this time. So, be sure to take advantage of the best travel opportunities with the assistance of Himalayan Diamond Adventure.

Nonetheless, if you cannot make it in autumn, spring also allows for favorable conditions for trekking in Nepal. The warmer days and nights, lush plants and vegetation, and clear trekking trails during spring make the trek worthwhile. However, the downside is occasional rain and slightly higher temperatures in the lower elevations. All in all, after autumn, spring is the second-best time to trek in Nepal.

Best time to trek in Nepal:

Thousands of tourists visit Nepal every year to enjoy the picturesque nature and trek through the adventurous and diverse terrain. However, the best times to trek in Nepal are autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May). During these seasons, travelers are blessed with moderate temperatures and enjoyable weather conditions throughout the country.

As calm as it may seem, the challenging terrains of the Himalayas in Nepal can present trekkers with gruesome scenarios during harsh weather conditions. To avoid any unforeseen situations and to enjoy nature at its best, most trekkers prefer autumn for backpacking. However, it may not be the best time of the year to trek in Nepal for everyone. Some may prefer off-season trekking to avoid the crowds. Therefore, exploring the various seasons can help you choose a favorable time for trekking in Nepal based on your preferences.

Trekking Seasons in Nepal

Throughout the year, the landscape of Nepal experiences four seasons, each with its own uniqueness that brings significant changes to the natural environment. Below are some detailed insights into the four seasons in Nepal.

1. Spring Season (March-May)

Spring in Nepal lasts from March to May and is one of the preferred seasons for trekking throughout the country. During this time, the climate is moderate, with slightly higher temperatures reaching up to about 32°C (89°F) in the lower elevation regions and around 20°C (68°F) at higher altitudes. The sky is usually clear with mild days and occasional rain.

Spring brings a rejuvenation of nature. Flowers begin to blossom, trees become lusher with newly sprung leaves, and spring vegetation sprouts again. Likewise, the flora and fauna of the Himalayan terrain also resuscitate from the harsh winter. Overall, spring is considered a great time for trekking in Nepal due to the alluring freshness of nature.

2. Summer Season (June-August)

With the end of May, summer starts in Nepal and lasts from June to August, which is also the monsoon season in the country. During these months, the weather can be harsh, with scorching heat and heavy rain throughout the nation. The rising humidity and extreme hot weather conditions may restrict travelers from fully enjoying their trip.

Although the lower elevation regions experience harsh summers, the Himalayan terrains are not as brutal. In the mountain regions, temperatures can range from approximately 25°C to 12°C (77°F to 53°F). However, heavy rains can make trekking through rocky mountain terrain challenging, and the cloudy sky may obscure mountain views.

3. Autumn Season (September-November)

With the arrival of autumn from September to November, Nepal becomes a popular destination for trekking. During this season, the weather is usually pleasant with clear skies, moderate temperatures, and gentle sunshine throughout the day. However, early autumn may bring occasional light rainfall. As the season progresses into October and November, the monsoon season completely ends, and cooler weather conditions prevail.

Many people choose to trek to popular destinations such as Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, and Poon Hill during this season. Additionally, autumn is festival season in Nepal, and visitors can witness major celebrations such as Dashain and Tihar, which provide an opportunity to experience Nepali culture and traditions. Many travel packages are available for the best treks in Nepal during this season, and our travel experts can help you plan your trip to align with the festival season.

4. Winter Season (December-February)

Winter, which lasts from December to February, is the harshest season for trekking in Nepal. As the temperature drops in December, nights become chilly, and temperatures can reach around 9°C (48°F) during the day and below 0°C (32°F) during the night in higher altitudes. During peak winter, many high passes and trekking routes in the mountains are covered with dense fog and snow, increasing the risk of unexpected accidents.

Because of the risks of unpleasant trekking conditions, most travelers avoid trekking in the Himalayan terrains during the winter season. Additionally, most expeditions and mountain climbing, including trekking in the Everest region, also come to a halt during the harsh winter. Overall, it may not be the best time to trek due to the challenges presented by the weather conditions.
