You know the Everest trail starts from 2000 m plus and ends at 5000 m. You need to have this information more than anyone else. Imagine how the trekking trail will be? It is meandering, steeply uphill; the latter takes you to the top of the hill as well as villages. Sometimes the downhill trail takes you to the river. Although this will lead to physical fatigue, you can overcome it by trekking leisurely at your own pace. You will be fully assisted by our trekking guide. While trekking, you must also take into consideration the symptoms of altitude mountain sickness. Each of these looks like limitations, but the reality is even a beginner can do the Everest Base Camp Trek.
The trekking seasons of Nepal can be divided into two categories: pre – monsoon and post -monsoon, based on these, you can do the Everest Base Camp Trek. The months that comprise the pre – monsoon are February, March, April, and May, while the post – monsoon is made of September, October, and November.
It will be great to know each of these months in detail because you will be able to decide how you are going to get the perfect result from your trek. We have discussed each of these months in order, so that you will have an alternative to choose one even if another month is not available for vacation from your office.
September, October, and November are the best months for trekking. Why are they the best? The question may arise in your brain. Actually, they have always been the best for hundreds of years. During these months, the sun shines brightly, and the sky is always clear. And it is during these months, the greatest festivals of Nepalese take place. When the sky is clear, the view of the mountains in the Everest region is stunning. And the temperature during the day is warmer. June and July are the rainy seasons. The views of the mountains are not clear.
But during December and January, the temperature is colder, and we don’t recommend them for trekking.
February, March, April, and May mark the end of the winter season as well as the temperature is warmer. The sky is clear , and these are the perfect months for trekking in the Everest region.
Trekking to the Everest Base Camp is not an easy task; you can face several challenges on your way in the form of infection or diarrhea due to, of course, unsanitary drinking water. But that doesn’t mean you refrain from drinking water. In fact, you have to drink 3-4 lt of water or any other form of liquid to avoid altitude sickness. On the way to Everest Base camp, there are numerous lodges, hotels, and restaurants that offer free drinking water that is well cleaned and boiled. You can also opt for bottled water, but the prices can increase as you gain altitude. Drinking directly from rivers and streams or springs is ideally not safe though they may seem clean to the naked eye. However, if you can’t find any other drinking water resources, you can always purify the water with water purification tablets, chlorine solution, and a life straw. With these purification methods, especially life straw, you can directly drink water from water resources as it will clean up to 99.9 percent of contaminants and bacteria.
