For this you must weather an alert app on your mobile, you can also contact the weather forecast group and know about the weather at the time of your travel. Doing so will keep away from wasting time during your trek.
Remember one thing while choosing the best time, check about the temperatures and atmosphere. Make sure you are traveling at a moderate temperature so that you can avoid the coldest weather in winter and occasional rainfall in summer. In moderate temperature, the view of the sky is crystal clear and there is no precipitation in the air. Moreover, at this time the atmosphere will be dry, making you comfortable for walking. In the winter season due to the cold temperature, the sky is mostly filled with clouds making unclear vision. And at this time the day will be shorter so you have to start your trekking from early morning.
Another month that is good for EBC trek is the fall of September through November. This is the post-monsoon season and gives you a clear vision of the Himalayas. You will observe blooming flowers, wildlife, and crystal clear blue skies, which will make your heart filled with joy and peace.
Spring season is the best time for trekking to the Himalayas in Nepal and also consider as the peak season for trekking in Nepal. You can get the real beauty of Everest base camp during this season. Spring season lasts from March and ends during the start of May in Nepal. The view of the mountains is seen crystal clear during this season. The surround also gets very enjoyable with the rhododendron blossoming everywhere throughout the trail.
Precipitation during the spring season is very low. So you can enjoy this trek without any delay and disturbance. Because of these things this season is very peak for trekking. So it is better if you book your trek early. Tea houses, hotels, and lodges will be filled during this season. The trail to Everest base camp is very comfortable to walk. You can get the beautiful glance of the mountain from the early trail of the trek. Trees and grassland gain their greenery during this month. The temperature during this month ranges from 5 degrees to 20 degrees Celsius. As this season is quiet warm you need to carry some lightweight clothes.
The autumn season is the second-best season for trekking in Nepal. The autumn season starts from early September and ends in late November. This season also provides a spectacular view of the mountains. You can observe the beauty of nature with a striking view of the trail. The autumn season is also the post-monsoon time of the year.
So all the dirtiness and dust will be clean by the rain and the surrounding looks very refreshing. This is also the best time to trek to Nepal because one of the main festivals of Nepal Dashain and Tihar also falls during this month. You will get to EBC Mount Everest and observe the typical Nepali tradition. The tail is dry during this season so it will not be difficult to walk. Though this season is the best time to trek there are few chances of precipitation. So will have to carry the necessary gear for the rain. Days are pretty warm and night is cold during this season. The temperature ranges from a maximum of 18 degrees during the daytime and falls to 10 degrees during night time. People trekking to Everest base camp during this month are also very high.
The monsoon season starts from the early of July to the end of August in Nepal. Summer and monsoon fall during the same month in Nepal. This season also gives a brilliant view of the mountains. However, for trekking Mount Everest trek in 14 days this time of the year is not suitable. As precipitation during this month are very high so trekking days might be a delay. A helicopter tour doing this month is not possible. The trekking trail is also very muddy and difficult to walk.
The tail will be full of snail and leeches everywhere. And the real threat during this season is a landslide. Because of this people trekking to EBC during this season is very low. And the hotels and lodges during this month may not be opened. The tail also becomes muddy and slippery. Due to rain and cloudy weather, you may not see the mountains clearly. You must carry an umbrella and raincoat with you all the time where ever you go.
This is the coldest time of the year and starts from early December and lasts till the end of February. It is a season of snowfall in the Khumbu region. People often trek to Everest base camp during the winter season to see the real beauty of the mountains. The mountains look like the bride covered with the white dress of snow. Seeing the highest mountain of the world covered in snow is just breathtaking.
The skies during this month are very famous and enjoyable. But this trek is not appropriate for 14 days trek. You will have to be physically fit during this month. Mount Everest trek is the extreme cold during this month the temperature ranges from a maximum of 10 degrees to minus -15 degrees during this month. You will have to carry warm clothes during this month. If you are a loner and do not want a crowd then trekking in the winter season is perfect.
Preparation for Everest Base Camp trek
EBC trek 14 days needs enough preparation. I repeat Everest Base Camp trek is not an easy task. It needs lots of preparation, Planning, Effort, and a strong mindset to accomplish. Before heading to your dream destination you must know some of the most important ways for how to prepare for this trek. You need to be well hydrated for your trek. Drink 4-5 liters of water from time to time so that you can balance in the area with a low oxygen environment. Another important tip is having enough acclimatization.
You should have at least have 1 day’s acclimatization in Namche Bazaar (3,500m/ 11,500 feet) for our Mount Everest Trek. Spending more time in such high altitude area would give you an experience of a low oxygen environment. Not only this, but it will also increase the production of red blood cells so that you can carry more oxygen to go to the higher altitudes.
Please have special training that is needed for the EBC trek. Hiking up daily with carrying a weight (6kg/12lbs) on your back is not an easy task. You need to strong to carry those loads and walk throughout your journey. Cardio training, strength training, physical fitness training, cycling, mountaineering are some of the special training you should do to make you physically strong.
It is a matter of wonder about the elevation you are gaining daily. Thus you must know about the sort of elevations you are gaining beforehand. This will ease you in building the right training plan. The oxygen level at a higher level of altitude of more than 3000m will decrease. So getting oxygen on your muscles will decrease as you go higher and higher. Hence, while preparing for your Mount Everest trek at the training phase, you should practice by carrying the same amount of weight you will be carrying in your trek. The right training plan is what guides all the other preparation methods. You should initiate your training 3 to 6 months before your actual trekking. So that you can have enough time for preparing and make perfect planning.
The right clothing makes your trip comfortable and easy. You should have clothes according to the season you are traveling. It is mandatory to bring the right sleeping bag, trekking boots, and merino layers. Enough rest and proper sleep make your body healthy during the trek. So that you can gain stamina and energy losses will be less. Bring the right layers, gloves, down jacket, trekking boots, backpack, and other essential items that you need.
Trip information of Mount Everest trek
Here are some of the information that you will need to have before trekking.
Food is very important while trekking to every base camp. Since Everest base camp lies in the high altitude place, you will not be provided with a variety of food. Most of the hotels provide Dal, Bhat, and Tarkari which belief to very healthy. These food are rich in protein and gives you energy to trek. In addition to this you will get to eat Tibetan Breads, Oatmeal, and French toast with jam, honey, and peanut butter, Corn Flakes, Hashed brown, fried, Scrambles. Eating food in the right amount is very important.
Accommodation is not a big problem while trekking in Mount Everest. There are lots of hotels and lodges on the trail. For the first two nights of the trek, you will be staying at the hotel of Kathmandu in which you will get the facility like WIFI, Hot Shower, and AC room with the best breakfast. But as you start gaining altitude the facility of the hotel starts to decrease. The hotels on the Khumbu region will provide you he rooms typically only 2- 3 single beds with nice and warm blankets, pillows, comfortable matrices, and a bathroom. If you are trekking in peak season it is better that you book your trek early.
Password, visa, and permit
If you are from another country you will need to have a password and visa. You will get the arrival visa at Tribhuwan International Airport, Kathmandu. You need to have a permit for trekking to Everest base. However, for entering Sagarmatha national park you will need to have a card worth NRS 3000 per person. Another card is for entering Khumbu Pasang Lamu Rural municipality which costs about NRS 2000 per person. These are made in the Kathmandu tourism office and Pokhara.
Travel insurance is very important for travailing any place. If you are traveling Mount Everest trek then having your travel insurance is a must. Trekking to the high mountain is a risky thing to do, so you will need to have insurance. There are many companies in Nepal which provide short term insurance. And if you are connected with the trekking company then they might help you to get the right insurance. There are different policies that the insurance company provides. Having good insurance will cover personal injury, injury, repatriation expenses, and any kind of illness will be covered.
