Best time to go on a trek
This trip can be made all year round as it poses moderate challenges. However, why don't we choose the best time when we got everything planned out for the trip?
The ideal seasons for the trek are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). In these seasons, the temperature is relatively moderate, and the skies are also clear. With these exceptionally clear views of the skies, you can enjoy the splendid sight of the highest peaks.
Treks during the monsoon and winter seasons are also possible. However, the weather conditions during this time are not favorable. There'll be high chances of flight cancellation, muddy roads, and snowfall.
Firstly, upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, you'll be greeted by our staff and transferred to the hotel.
You'll board an early flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airport the following day. In this trekking journey, you'll be trekking for several hours and pass through several beautiful villages and towns like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche Lobuche, and Gorakshep.
There will be two acclimatization days for the trek—one in Namche Bazaar and the other in Dingboche. In Namche Bazaar, you'll be hiking to Everest View Hotel, which is popular as the world's highest-placed hotel. Here, you can enjoy spectacular 360-degree views of the peaks like Cho Oyu, Thamserku, and more.
On your second acclimatization day, you'll be hiking to Nagerjun, a hill on the edges of the Chhukung Valley. The finest view of Lobuche East, Kangtega, Taboche Peak, and Ama Dablam will be visible upon reaching the point.
After reaching Gorakshep, you'll be hiking to Everest Base Camp and returning to Gorakshep. Then, a hike is organized to Kala Patthar ( 5644m), the highest hiking point. After spending some time there, you'll return to Gorakshep and take a helicopter ride back to Kathmandu.
