  • The best time to do the Everest Base Camp trek is during the pre-monsoon (spring) and post-monsoon (autumn) seasons. These seasons provide the most favorable weather conditions for trekking to Everest Base Camp. 

    Here's a detailed overview of all four Nepal seasons and whether it's feasible to do an EBC trek in all 4 seasons.

    Spring Season (Pre-Monsoon):

    • Best Time:

    Starting from March to May is the SPRING SEASON, which is the best time to trek to Everest Base Camp. During spring the weather is essentially clear, and the temperatures are moderate. 

    NOTE: With the Climate Change factor these days Nepal is experiencing very unusual weather patterns. As a result, the early spring season can sometimes be unpredictable.

    Summer Season (Monsoon):

    • Feasibility During Monsoon:

     The summer/monsoon season in Nepal is from June to August. Monsoon experiences heavy rainfall and is not recommended for trekking to Everest Base Camp. The monsoon season brings unpredictable weather, landslides, and flight cancellations, making it challenging and potentially dangerous for trekking.

    Autumn Season (Post-Monsoon):

    • Best Time:

     The autumn season, from September to November, is another excellent time for the Everest Base Camp trek. The weather is great with clear skies, providing stunning views of the Himalayas.

    NOTE: However, Nepal is experiencing extended periods of monsoon every year that may make September still cloudy resulting in flight delays and cancellations. And trekkers in most Annapurna destinations encountered leeches till early October which is unusual. So, it's advisable to be well-prepared for such conditions.

    Winter Season:

    • Feasibility During Winter:

     The winter season in Nepal is from December to February. Winter comes with cold temperatures and occasional snowfall, especially at higher altitudes. While it is possible to trek during the winter to EBC but it requires proper gear, experience, and preparation for cold weather conditions

  • Though the epic trip to Everest Base camp is phenomenal offering anyone a great trekking experience with panoramic mountain views it is challenging. E.B.C. is a Strenuous-Challenging trek due to Altitude variation and thin air yet it is achievable for anyone with sound fitness. Anybody of any age group can join as our itineraries are intended to make the trip more pleasing than exhausting nonetheless, we recommend pre-physical training and your doctors’ consent in regards to personal ailments, weak ankle/knee, blood pressure, heart problem,s etc. 

  • 15 Kilograms is the weight limitation in our Domestic airlines and at the same time, all company are to abide by the porter weight restrictions rules that prevails in our country. However, regarding what you need to bring/carry with you please CLICK HERE HERE HERE

  • Since we allow people a very relaxed pace with multiple breaks, the time duration varies. However, we usually walk 5/6 hours every day excluding Lunch. To make every day more memorable and relaxed we set up our own pace giving you ample time to enjoy the moment. We also start early so that we can reach the destination which in return contributes to more space to explore and enjoy the serenity of the place.

  • With Nepal Pyramids you have every right to modify the itinerary as per the time convenient to you and the level of fitness of the group.

  • It is always very tricky to predict the weather in the mountains and anyone flying high to these high-altitude airports must be aware of the fact that the delays and cancellations are common episodes. Besides, our airport has one single airstrip for both international and domestic the probability of delays is high. In a similar way, anyone flying Lukla must be prepared to take these circumstances with patience. However, it’s not a daily story. And it’s always very wise to have a contingency day in Kathmandu to cushion any cancellation situation. 

  • Family Oriented Lodges which Nepal Pyramids use are at their best offering you a comfort experience and its typical local environment. It’s basically the extension of their own houses that offers you twin bed sharing room with common toilets. You have a variety of choices for the food and so far with Nepal Pyramids absolute contentment prevails in regards to meals and Local Tea-House. 

  • E.B.C. is an inspiring trek suitable for people with sound fitness. Though trekking in Everest involves a tremendous amount of up and down walking with gain or loss in the altitude no previous wide-ranging experience is needed. However, for anyone with very weak ankles, knee, heart, or lung problems essential pre-check-up and consent from your doctor is mandatory. We recommend some pre-physical training prior to your arrival in Nepal. The recommendation for the best preparation would be everyday undulating walking, cardio, or running certainly adds to your self-reliance.
