Best time to trek to Everest Base Camp

The best time to do the budget Everest base camp trekking is from March to May and September to November. These months have the perfect weather and climate for trekking to Everest base camp. The weather does not fluctuate, and with a pleasant climate, walking becomes lovely. You will witness clear mountain views and lush greenery of the region in these two seasons.

Trekking in the winter season (December to February) is also possible, but you have to be ready for the cold and trail full of snow. Winter trekking to Everest base camp is also quite fun if you are properly prepared. Likewise, the accommodation and meals are very cheap because of less number of trekkers during this season. Summer/monsoon (June to August) is one of the worst times for budget Everest base camp trek. The weather is poor, with high chances of delays and cancellations of Lukla’s flight.

Budget Everest base camp trek preparation and packing

To prepare for the budget Everest base camp trek, exercise and walk daily. Go on long walks and if possible regular hikes. Train your leg muscles and build your core strength, stamina, and endurance. Cardio will help you a lot with stamina and endurance. And to improve your core strength and leg muscles, you can do strength training in the gym.

While the regular movement of your body will help you a lot to prepare physically for the trek, you have to do trail research and set your expectations as per that to have mental strength during the trek. Khumbu region is a remote area, so most of the things are limited here. It is not like anything you have experienced in the city. A positive attitude towards the limitations of the region is crucial.

Similarly, follow our packing guidelines provided during the time of booking to pack for the budget Everest base camp trek. Pack smartly and pack every little thing. Make sure you are ready to face all kinds of weather, even during the peak trekking seasons.
