Morning and nighttime as well as in shade can be cold and much freezing temperatures around higher areas above 3,000 m.

Other months from September to November are another great time for treks around Kanchenjunga base camp and other areas of the Himalayas, when days are clear for views and to summit the top of the peak, although much colder months of the autumn season with extremely cold during morning and night time, where sunlight is much shorter.

Best Seasons for Everest Luxury Lodge Trekking

Trekking at the Everest region 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 till December, months during autumn and pre-winter season.

March to May is a lovely time with enough day lights and sunshine. When high hills with forests of tall trees and bushes of rhododendron will be 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 midafternoon 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 that obstructing views of peaks, encountering less and few numbers of trekkers during the rainy season of Mid-June till 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 monsoon season around Nepal and other Himalayan destinations much warmer than other seasons of spring and autumn.

Local Culture and Religion seen at the trekking trail and rest days

Sherpas are the natives of Everest and other higher Himalayan regions, the word “Sherpa” comes from the Tibetan language. As East for Sher and Pa means people, where Sherpa migrated around the high Himalayas of Nepal around Mid-East and Far Eastern Himalayas range from Eastern parts of Tibet.

Way back more than 400 years of history, the Sherpa normally are farmers and livestock herdings like cows and yaks interwoven with strong Buddhism religion and fascinating cultures that you can witness walking around villages.

In every Sherpa village, one can find a monastery, some are older by more than 500 years like the “monastery of Thame and Pangboche villages”, whereas the famous monastery of Tengboche was much older and was destroyed by a huge fire in 1991 and has been built to its original shapes.

As you walk from one village to another, you will come across many prayer walls and religious monuments of Stupas (domes), with rows of spinning prayer wheels. Sherpa men-folks were the earlier pioneers as mountain and trekking guides and still held the post to the present.

                              FAQs
                              • Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trekking is considered a moderate level of trekking for trekkers with good experience. Still, it is hard for beginners and first-time trekkers due to the altitude and the continuous walk, which would be for 11 days and cover around 146 kilometers of walking.

                              • Having previous trekking experience is considered the best. Still, the only solution for not having any trekking experiences is to take a knowledgeable guide who can deal with your physical and mental conditions.

                                 

                              • Yes, meals are included during Everest Luxury Lodge Trekking. Trekking Planner Nepal provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner during the trek. We provide cookies after reaching the tea houses or lodge and fresh fruits at night after dinner.

                              • During the Everest Luxury Lodge Trekking, we provide 4-night twin/double sharing deluxe accommodation on a Bed and Breakfast basis in Kathmandu in a 4-star hotel.

                                 

                              • The required group size for the trek can be a single solo person or a group of 28 people. Trekking Planner Nepal takes care and accepts the booking and provides the best service, doesn't matter if you are solo or in a group.

                              • The best season for going on a trek towards the Everest region is during the autumn and spring seasons of Nepal, and converting it into months would be September, October, November, March, April, and May in Nepal.

                                 

                              • Having travel insurance is not mandatory, but having travel insurance helps to ensure that you are covered in medical issues, rescue and evacuation issues, and in case of luggage misplacement or unforeseen circumstances. Having travel insurance is always better; prevention is always better.

                                 

                              • Trekking Planner Nepal provides safe drinking water during the trek. Still, we recommend all trekkers carry water purification tablets or bottle that contains filters.

                                 

                              • Engaging in physical activities, avoiding lifts, going on a walk with at least 7-8 kilos of weight, and getting involved in cardiovascular exercises will help prepare for the trek.

                              • The safety measures that must be followed for an Everest Base Camp Trek are always listening to your guide, staying honest about the physical and mental condition of your body, drinking at least 3 liters of water per day and at night time, never sleeping on an empty stomach even if you don't feel like eating try to consume the foods and swallow them with water.

                              • No, there will be porters to carry your stuff along the trek. Trekkers will have just the day bag in which they will take frequently used stuff, water bottles, important stuff like passport money, raincoats, garters, chocolates, mountain bars, and other things as they wish.

                                 

                              • The ratio for guide and staff during the Everest Base Camp Trek is one porter and direction for one or two pax. It increases in the same proportion as the group size increases for porters and guides. There will be two guides if the group has 5-8 members. If more than 8-12 or equivalent to 8-12 travelers, there will be more than three guides.

                              • Trekking Planner Nepal accepts last-minute bookings anytime. We are an experienced company with a wide amount of experience and have been in the business for around 23 years, so there are many options. You can join a fixed departure group or also schedule your travel date.

                              • The Everest Luxury Lodge Trek is completely worth it as we get electric blankets attached, private rooms, and warm rooms, and having these facilities in cold temperatures equals heaven.

                                Best Trekking company, Guide & Porter!

                                Myself and my fiancé did the Base Camp Trek in March - it was absolutely amazing!
                                We felt well looked after from the moment we arrived until we boarded our flight home.

                                Our Guide Ananta and Porter Doje were really attentive and helpful throughout the trek. Ananta was constantly monitoring our health, appetite, and pace to make sure we were okay. He also is highly knowledgeable & very comprehensively answered all our questions along the way about mountains, the environment, Nepal culture and wildlife (and we had a LOT of questions 🀣). Doje was great at taking care of us during difficult sections of the trail as well.

                                Mr Dipak was also constantly available via call or WhatsApp if we had any requests or had questions on trekking/travel arrangements.

                                The teahouses chosen by the company were also wonderful, with clean facilities and good food - you can tell that Trekking Planner has very strong relationships with local venues and vendors.

                                Thank you so much Ananta, Doje & Mr Dipak - we would highly recommend you and will definitely be back!

                                We had the most wonderful trip with Avi and the porters. It's not just the service they provide, it's the sincerity and family affection.
