Best Time for the trek to Everest Base Camp

 

 

The best time for Everest Base Camp Trek and fly back by helicopter is autumn (September, October, and November) and spring (March, April, and May). These two seasons the weather is sunny and warm and high possibility to see the clear mountain with your fresh eyes. In high altitude, nights are clod in all season. In winter (December, January, and February) cold is the big issue for a trekker. Other parts are quite good. EBC Trek in summer (June, July, and August) or monsoon will be affected by rain; but this season trekking is best for a botanist. Everest Trekking routes are crowded in the autumn and summer; but during winter and summer, the trekking routes are not packed.
