Climate and Weather during Everest Base Camp Trekking And Chitwan Safari

Everest Base Camp: The Everest region temperature differs from time to time. The temperature ranges from below freezing at night to roughly 10°C during the warmest months. During the peak season, the weather is clear and mild and provides excellent views of the mountain ranges. However, it totally depends on the traveler's taste and preference. Trekking Planner Nepal always suggests that travelers visit in the peak season.

Jungle Safari: The weather varies widely depending on location, but the months of February to June and September to November are typically regarded as the best periods to visit. During these months, the weather is favorable, animals are visible, and the greenery is rich. However, Trekking Planner Nepal advises travelers to consult about their planning to visit and their travel plans accordingly.

 

Local Culture and Religion around 17 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking And Chitwan Safari

Everest Base Camp: The region around Everest Base Camp is mainly populated by Sherpa people, who have a rich cultural past and practice Tibetan Buddhism. Tourists visiting to Everest Base Camp come across traditional Buddhist temples, prayer flags, and local celebrations such as the Mani Rimdu festival, which is held yearly in the fall. Sherpa hospitality is well known, and tourists also have the opportunity to enjoy local hospitality and sample traditional Sherpa dishes.

Traditional villages, traditional dances, and native festivals, such as the Tharu people's Chhath Puja celebration, may be encountered by visitors. Traditional medicinal methods and local handicrafts may also be covered.

Important Note: When visiting these areas, it's essential to be respectful of local customs and traditions, and avoid taking photos of sensitive cultural or religious sites without permission.

Best Seasons for 17 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking And 3 Days Chitwan Safari

Everest Base Camp Trek can be done nearly all months of the year. However, the best time is from March to May, in the spring season, and from mid-September until December, months during the autumn and pre-winter seasons.

March to May is a lovely time with enough daylight and sunshine. When high hills with forests of tall trees and bushes of rhododendron are in full bloom with other wildflowers, make this trek more interesting and special.

Most days are clear from morning till late afternoon but can get cloudy sometimes with a chance of snows around higher elevations, and cold in the morning and nighttime (not adding extra wind-chill factors).

Mid-September to December during the autumn/fall season, where most days are crystal clear from morning till mid-afternoon but with short daylights, much colder and freezing temperatures in the morning and night as well in shades, away from sunlight (not adding extra wind-chill factors).

Some people might be interested in trekking during the low season of wet monsoons. Most days are cloudy, which obstructs views of peaks, encountering fewer and fewer numbers of trekkers during the rainy season of mid-June to mid-September, but very lush and green with enough moisture that supports more oxygen to help acclimatization. Days are longer with sunlight due to summer, and the monsoon season around Nepal and other Himalayan destinations is much warmer than other seasons of spring and autumn.

Travel Insurance.

Travel insurance is considered as important aspect during trekking. Trekking Planner Nepal strongly advises travelers to get travel insurance.  You should also make sure that the insurance covers all emergencies, such as medical treatment, evacuation, trip cancellation, and trip termination. Nepal Trekking Planner further recommends assuring that the insurance policy covers high altitude trekking as well as activities such as jungle safaris in case of accidents or unexpected incidents. Nepal Trekking Planner advises you to obtain travel and medical insurance from World Nomads Travel Insurance for your upcoming holiday in Nepal, a Himalayan destination.

Treks, trekking, and tour programs have itineraries with accommodations in respective hotels/lodges/homestays, guest houses, and resorts. Trekking Planner Nepal also offers camping in some remote places as part of the program itinerary. Sometimes the trip may be longer or shorter depending on the clients' fitness, vehicle availability, flight delays and cancellations, unfavorable weather conditions, and the topography of Nepal. Trekking Planner Nepal requests that clients get travel and medical insurance before booking any tour or hike. It should include appropriate coverage for the duration of the tour/trek to cover personal injury, death, medical expenditures, and repatriation expenses in any mode of transportation used for emergency evacuation, such as helicopter rescue or air ambulance, as well as adequate baggage coverage.

Altitude and Altitude Sickness

Everest Base Camp: The highest point we reach during the trek to Everest Base Camp is approximately 5,364 m (17,598 feet) in Gorakshep. The journey to Everest Base Camp usually begins in Lukla (2,840 m/9,318 feet). Normally, during the trek to Everest Base Camp, people face acute mountain sickness (AMS). Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) typically begins at elevations above 3,400 meters (10000 feet), even for trekkers and becomes more common and severe as one ascends higher. AMS is caused by low air pressure and minimum oxygen levels at high altitudes, and symptoms can include headache, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, and difficulty sleeping.

Chitwan Jungle Safari: Chitwan Jungle Safari is done in Chitwan National Park, the oldest national park in Nepal. This national park is located at an elevation of 100 m at an elevation of around 415 meters (1362 feet) above sea level. Chitwan National Park is located in the inner Terai area, which is a low-lying plain near the Indian border and is one of Asia's best destinations for animal viewing and jungle safaris.

The height of Chitwan National Park in Nepal is approximately 100 meters (328 feet) above sea level.

Washing and toilets during Everest Base Camp Trekking And Chitwan Safari

The toilet and washing facilities available during a 17-day trek to Everest Base Camp and a jungle safari always differ depending on where you are.

Everest Base Camp: On the Everest Base Camp trek, the toilet facilities may differ from those in the city area. The toilets at Everest Base Camp are simple and may not have running water. You may have to use a squat toilet or a toilet with a primary seat. As there is limited access to running water, it is important to have tissues, face wipers and wet towels.

Chitwan Jungle Safari: In the case of Chitwan Jungle Safari, the accommodation facility is more reliable. The toilet and washing facilities available on a jungle safari still vary depending on the lodge. The lodges feature better facilities with toilets and showers. To ensure that you have a clear knowledge of what to expect. Trekking Planner Nepal always refers you to the best-facilitated hotel.

Accommodation around Everest Base Camp Trekking And Chitwan Safari

They are often simple but comfortable, and they provide an excellent opportunity to engage with locals and other trekkers. At some tea houses you need to pay for charging phones and hot water.  Camping is another option if you want a more immersive experience.

                                      Excellent holiday - thoroughly recommended!

                                      We did the Everest Base Camp trek in April 2019 together with a safari in Chitwan National Park when we returned from trekking. The holiday exceeded expectations from start to finish. Dipak met us at the start and was a constant feature throughout. He was great, very quick to respond and an excellent organiser. The trek was fabulous (no issues whatsoever) and the safari was luxury! Dipak organised hotels in Kathmandu in between which were also of excellent quality. We have nothing bad to say. Excellent trip.
