Weather condition in Everest Base Camp TrekEverest Base Camp is suitable for the trekkers all round the year but you can best enjoy the snow between September to December and March to mid-May. Temperatures at the summit are never above freezing and during January temperatures can drop as low as -60° C (-76° F). Despite the low temperatures the biggest issue faced by climbers are hurricane force winds and wind chill. The weather is quite unpredictable in the mountains.  As winters are very cold with a lot of snowfalls, at times it might be difficult for the trekkers to trek through the snow.  In such weather condition, you might not be able to trek to a high altitude. So for your own convenience always carry some light tents with you. Weather in the mountains is notoriously difficult to predict. However, it is not as gloomy and cold as you imagine, and the temperature generally features the big temperature gap, cold at night while warm during daytime. It is almost sunny and even warm in the summer time, about 12°C (22°F) colder than in Lhasa. If you are thinking of trekking in the Everest Base camp during the summers, then it’s the most desirable time will be in the month of April and May. During summers get stunned by the amazing view of the peaks lost in the clouds. You can see the flowers blooming especially the Rhododendrons.  The whole valleys look spectacular with the vast greenery and a mixture of colours. For the trekkers who love to enjoy the monsoons can visit this place earlier. Although it will be a wet season but the dust will be clear because of the rain.Tips for Everest Base Camp1) Bring enough money: There are no ATMs in Lukla, so one is advised to carry enough money with them in case of need for an emergency. And even for buy trekking equipments in Kathmandu. It is one of the best and cheapest place to buy the same.2) Bring your own Tea: Yes, tea is very expensive at the Everest. But getting hot water won’t cost you much. Carry your own tea bags to be used while on the trek.3) Mentally prepare yourself: As this is not an easy trek, you should prepare yourself mentally for the task that is ahead of you. This means, be prepared for extreme weather conditions, All accommodation on the trek to Everest Base Camp is in small tea houses, run by the local Sherpa people. There are options for showers lower down on the trail, if you decide to use them, however, many people keep clean by using baby wipes and a bowl of warm water each day. The toilet situations can be difficult at times, as in the tea houses they are generally not Western-style toilets, rather just a hole in the ground instead of a toilet bowl. 4) What to Carry: Warm clothes, sun glasses, trekking boots, gloves, trekking stick, woolen caps among other trekking equipments you want to carry. However, the most important thing to bring is a good pair of trekking shoes that you have hiked in previously. Kathmandu is a great place to buy trekking clothes that are both cheap and of decent quality. If you can bring your own sleeping bag otherwise you can rent one for about 500-600 rupees a day.5) Prepare for extreme weather: If it’s sunny you might be surprised at how warm it can get during the day. Most trekkers wear t-shirts and shorts for the first few days while the elevation is still low. When the sun sets the temperatures drop quick. Wear a warm hat while sleeping and take a Nalgene bottle filled with hot water and keep it in your sleeping bag to stay warm. 6) Stay Hydrated: Make sure to drink plenty of water while on the trek. Do carry extra water bottles with you at all times.7) Altitude Headaches: A headache can be one of the first signs of altitude problems.  Do carry suitable medications for the same. Small headaches are common and should not stop you from trekking or worry you. However if it persists or increases, it might be advisable to ascend or even trek down.8) Avoid the Sun: Taking care of your skin and eyes are important. Sunburns happen much quicker at high elevation so make sure to apply sunscreen a few times a day and wear a hat. Sunglasses are a must have and if you wear prescription glasses it’s good to come to Nepal with a pair of prescription sunglasses or at least clip-ons.9) Dress in Layers: Layering allows you to easily regulate your body temperature and stay comfortable while trekking.  It’s even better if your layers have zippers so that you have even more control of your body temperature. 10) Bring a camera: This trek is one of the most beautiful Himalayan Treks. So much so, that one would want to stop at every step and take pictures to make memories for life.11) Bring Extra Batteries/Charging Packs: In the cold, your batteries will die much quicker than they do at home. This holds true for basically every kind of electronic you'll be using from phones to cameras to kindles. While some of the tea houses allow you to charge things, they all charge you for it (some more than others). An easy way to avoid this is to bring spare batteries and a portable charger.

Traveller Tales from Kathmandu



03 May 2017

Having trekked in the Sahayadris for over 4-5 years now and after doing two himalayan treks in the previous season, I wanted to do a more challenging trek. So finally I decided to climb the base camp of the highest mountain in the world. The majestic mountain range had been in my bucket list for many years. Now seemed to be the right time, and so I set off in search of the "Everest". I always thought how difficult could it be to climb mountains, after all, it just takes putting one step ahead of the other. I was wrong, it indeed turned out to be more difficult than I imagined. This is due to the rarefied air in the atmosphere, that makes breathing difficult. Even a nominal gradient while ascending seems to be a task. But thankfully I wasn't hit by any symptoms of AMS ( Acute Mountain Sickness ) which makes the mountaineer's job tremendously difficult at high altitudes. On the trek, it was the promise of some awesome photos, that helped me carry through many steep climbs. But, the sheer beauty of the barren mountains with clear blue sky in the backdrop and the ferocious Dudh Koshi River inspired me not to give up but to keep climbing. During the climb of Kala Patthar, I learnt the importance of balance and concentration, even when you are exhausted beyond limit. On the Kala Patthar summit day, I set out at 4 in the morning, climbing through the mountain with a 50-70 degree gradient; sub zero temperatures, chilly winds and freezing weather. It was total dark and the only thing I could see through my head torch was the next step. From this moment till 6 am in the morning, I only thought about the awesome feeling of summiting and achieving my goal. As the air was thin, I concentrated on breathing properly and adequately and took synchronized baby steps. And, finally at 6:30 am I reached the Summit (5643m)! The view of the sunrise on Everest was just spectacular and the feeling of having summited, exhilarating!! The Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar expedition made me realize that to achieve a goal, it is important to believe in your own efforts and strength (Both Physical and Mental).But more than that, we should be grateful towards the ecosystem around and factors beyond our control which play an equally important role in our journey to achieve anything.

A good trek at a very reasonable price is what I need to say about this trek first of all. I had a comfortable and good stay at the base camp. The camping was a great fun and I enjoyed to the core. Heard that this was the most challenging trek of Nepal and so I decided to try this out. This was obviously challenging but I could make it out till the end. it was just out of the world experience

The mountains were brilliant and nice, the clear sky after the summer monsoon had dusted away the dust and we hence got a chance to have a clear view of the whole peak and the adjacent places. The days we spent at the camp base was cooler even though it could have been more long.

Everest Base Camp Trekking In Nepal is one of the best camp trekking that I have ever taken. Everest has been in my wish list of places to trek for so long. When it did finally happen, I was getting sceptical. However, thanks to the organizers for making this whole process a smooth one for me. I am so glad and happy to have actually taken this trek. Also, visiting Nepal was a splendid experience. Viewing Everest from Nepal is the best part of this trip. I just wish I can do this again soon.

Hill trekking is fun. What’s more fun is doing it in Nepal. This was my first visit to Nepal, and trekking there was simply spell-binding. I had a really great time and it was completely awesome trekking those peak spots. There was no drawback at all. It was simply splendid.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking In Nepal is one of the best and wonderful treks that I have ever been to. It was interesting and awesome. Trekking is one of my favourite hobbies, but of late, I haven’t been trekking so much, so I took this vacation to do trekking and I absolutely loved it. It had been the best trek ever. I would definitely recommend this.

The great Everest Base trek camp is the most spectacular camping that I ever know of. What I liked personally about this trek was the courtesy and reception of the inhabitants at this place. Even though the trek was steep and sharp we had ample route to trek and enjoy. We even had time to take marvellous pictures at each and every step of the trek. I should say that I went on this trek at the right time. it was a life changing experience for me!!

Are you planning to head for a trek to the Everest Base camp? Well hear my story of my experience to this wonderful heaven on Earth, I am basically from Rajasthan, and am a great lover of trek, I never leave any trekking place in the World untouched, there are many I have taken up and there are still vast to explore, as I was trekking to each and every place that I had shortlisted from my bucket list, the Everest base camp took its turn last month, I was very eagerly waiting for this trek ever since I had heard from the Indian friends about a trekking destination like this in Nepal. The Everest memory is going to be in memories forever; base camp at the world’s highest mountain is not everyone’s cup of tea. It needs endurance, agility, talent and stability to survive the whole way through, which is what I have learnt from the trek. When the temperature in Rajasthan was touching around 40 degree, I decided to trek to the Everest to take a break from the climate and the city. I read about the reviews before hand and planned everything, initially I thought of going alone, but at the last moment some old school friends of mine joined up, so it was a team of ten heading to the highest peak of the world. Our journey began at Rajasthan, and within few hours we reached Kathmandu, from where we were supposed to be picked up by our guides, we moved on from here to a nearby hotel, as we wanted to fresh up and make ourselves active before the actual trek began, so our first day was a complete rest at the hotel, the next day we went down to explore the Kathmandu valleys and monkey temple, and then by evening we were boarded flight to Lukla, and here finally our trekking activity started, caught a glimpse of this statue on way – Late Pasang Lhamu Sherpa ( the first Nepali women to reach the world top), and then from here we reached to Phakding, here we halted for some time, took a short nap for a couple of hours, and on our guides call we started to trek towards gateway of Everest, Namche Bazaar. Uphill and downhill trek over here was simply amazing, then we had to stop at Jorsale for some legal paper work, which was taken care of well by our guide, crossing the alpine vegetation and suspension bridge we landed at Namche Bazaar, after halting here overnight we started our acclimatizing walk towards the Everest view hotel from where we caught view of various peaks, Kusum Kangaroo, Thamsekru, Amadablam and the gigantic Mt. Everest. Then we trekked to Tengboche, Dingboche, Nagarjuna hill and then towards Lobuche. From Lobuche the final lap of trek to Everest base camp began, after trekking for around three hours I finally made it up to the Everest Base camp. That feel being on top of this Everest was like being on top of the world. Yay! I was waiting for this moment since then to share it with my friends, relatives and other trekking enthusiasts.

It is not always about travelling to some great place, but it is all about the experience that we get from out tour. This is what I felt after I am now done with my Everest base camp trek, I heard from my colleagues that this trek is a very challenging one, but then I and my school friends decided to give it a try. Even though I have a good trekking experience, my friend was not too much in to it, still we both were eager to take up and make it possible. The Everest is the most sought after destination for trekking enthusiasts, and we were lucky that we got an opportunity to trek to this wonderful mountain peak region. Now talking out about the trek, I and my friend just backpacked some clothing, good quality trekking shoe and started off to this wonderful destination, I had already arranged for the trekking schedule and the itinerary was briefed to us well in advance, the whole trekking journey of 14 days is still in front of my eyes, I am yet to recover from that trance state. We started our journey at Chennai and reached Kathmandu, and then from here we were flown to Lukla to trek to Phadking, the whole way we enjoyed the panoramic view and the beauty of the hills, from Lukla our trekking journey began gradually, with many ups and downs we never faced any problem anywhere, the Guides were not only co-operative but they were entertaining too, they gave us break every now and then, the short suspension that we came across was a great view at Kusum- Kangru. As we trailed through on this base camp trek we came across many villages and rivers. The villagers were very friendly; in fact we were surprised to see that some of the villagers were able to speak good English, they are very eager to help strangers and particularly trekkers, so there wasn’t any fear of getting lost at all, the pathway which we had to go through was full of ridges and trails, initially I was a bit afraid that we may get lost, but as I had said before the villagers are too friendly and they will helped us out with the ways, once or twice we were little behind our fellow trekkers, luckily with the help of the villagers we managed to get back to our team. As we had trekked only last week, the weather was rather clear and we were able to see clearly the snow capped mountains and the flowing rivers. As we were trekking high, we felt it little hard to trek, over here we had to take a small break and energize our body by filling it with local food and drinks that was available almost at every junction. Some of the other trekkers who hadn’t hired guides faced little problem, luckily we escaped such a situation. Overall, I had a very delightful experience and am longing to trek again during this winter.
