Best time to do Everest Base Camp

Everest Base Camp trail is easily accessible during two different seasons, spring and autumn. April to mid-June months mark the spring season, and September to November months mark the autumn. During these two seasons, trekkers can easily access the trail and enjoy the best sceneries, including mountains and river valleys.

The season of monsoon/summer isn’t recommended for trekking, as the incessant rainfall can often affect the flight to/from Lukla. Winter is one of the beautiful seasons to visit EBC. The months of December until February experience serious wind chill and snowfall. However, the daytime offers crystal clear weather and exceptional mountain views.

Alpine Eco Trek offers specialized and custom Christmas and New Year trips to Everest Base Camp.

How Difficult is Everest Base Camp Trip?

Everest Base Camp is by far the most popular trek in Nepal. Over 30,000 tourists visit the pristine Everest Region every year. Among them, the majority of tourists embark on the trek to Everest Base Camp located at the sheer altitude of 5,210 meters.

It traverses the historical expedition route that has seen the likes of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. The 08 days Everest Base Camp Trek remains popular for its challenging endeavors. As high altitude and its health-related problems remain the major issue during this trek, we ensure that the trekkers don’t need to climb over 600 meters in a day.

The highest you’ll climb is 780 meters from Phakding to Namche Bazaar. Above all, Alpine Eco Trek strictly follows the policy of one porter for one trekker for any trip over 4,000 meters. The porter carries the entire luggage making it easy for the trekkers to walk at their own pace.

Lukla-EBC-Lukla 11 day trek

We are 2 sisters who have recently completed an 11-day trek from Lukla to EBC and back to Lukla. Not wanting to be part of a large trekking group we decided to make our own arrangements as we have done on previous treks. Chose Alpine Eco Trek after speaking with them about a different trek last year. On that occasion our plans changed so we did not use the services of Alpine Eco Trek but having found them to be so helpful, honest and professional we decided to speak with them about this, our latest proposed trek. Ram Kumar greeted me like a long lost friend, remembering me from our discussions last year. He clearly laid out the costs involved and between us, we drew up our proposed route. He was very clear about the documentation that he required from us including a copy of our trekking insurance and a passport photo for their records. We were introduced to 2 prospective Porter, Guides and given the opportunity to chat with them and make our own decision on which man to use. Our chosen Porter, Guide was a young man with a huge smile called Amit. His spoken English was excellent and not only was he saving up to do a 3 month English course, out of season, to improve on his English language skills he was also learning Chinese to give himself even more work opportunities. Alpine Eco Trek will be my chosen trekking company next year and hopefully, Amit will join us when we tackle the 3 Passes.

First class experience to Everest Base Camp

We did the 11 Day group trek from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and back – what a marvelous experience. Alpine Eco Trek was a joy from booking right through to completion of our trek. The friendly team at AET took away all the stress that could be added on this trek and really helped our group in having an unforgettable experience of a lifetime. We really loved the fact we were walking with locals, eating with locals, staying with locals and our trek leader, Mr. Karma Sherpa was born in the Everest region. He gave us a real insight into Sherpa’s life, culture, and history of this beautiful Sherpa land. We cannot wait to trek with Alpine Eco Trek again and we do not hesitate to recommend this company and its lovely owner, Mr. Ram Kumar, to our friends and families.
