Useful Information

What is the best Season for Trekking ?

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Everest Trek and fly back by heli. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan. and Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests and also less chance of flight. Trekking in the Summer or Monsoon seasons (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain but the Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
