Best Time for visiting Everest Region
For visiting the Everest Everest Region, Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November) are the best months for High altitude treks in Nepal. The air, freshly washed by the monsoon rain, is crystal clear, stunning mountain scenery, and the weather is still comfortably warm. Although many trekking trips into the lower altitude can be taken during winter and monsoon too, but the cold can be bitter and dangerous at the high altitude, trekking trails above 4000 meters are usually blocked by the heavy snowfall. And the trails can be slippery due to the monsoon rain, Nepal’s famous Juka (leeches) are an unpleasant feature of the wet season, but with care, trekking can still be possible and there are certainly fewer trekkers on the trail.
