Best season for Everest base camp short trekking
Spring season (March-May)
The month of the Spring season from March to April is the best month for Everest base camp short trekking. The weather is generally calm and perfect for high-altitude climbing in the spring. Along with the sunny skies, the trail's picturesque panoramas of a clear sky and bright rhododendrons are definitely factors that contribute. The best season with the best weather, nevertheless, has a cost. Due to the hot season, the area becomes somewhat crowded.

It's still possible to climb the mountain in May, just before the monsoon, and you might share the region with climbers who are already participated in a series of "rotations," throughout which they climb up the mountain higher and higher between coming back to Base Camp to rest before ultimately attempting the summit. The best weather window for this varies each year based on the Bengali monsoon, although most successful summit attempts take place in late May.
Monsoon season (June- August)
Trekking during monsoon is quite challenging for trekkers due to the slippery way, landslides, leeches, and blurred views. Moreover, in Nepal, the monsoon started in June and ends in August. This time of month though brings higher temperatures and continuous rain all day. Due to bad bad weather conditions taking a flight from Lukla (the most dangerous airport) can be risky. The weather may have an impact on flights from Kathmandu to Lukla in addition to how you experience the Everest region. The most common mode of transportation to Lukla is via air, however, flights are frequently cancelled when the conditions are unfavourable in Kathmandu, Lukla, or en route. Although there is a greater chance that flights will proceed as planned outside of the monsoon season, flights can be affected by rain, fog, or pollution at any time of the year.
Fall season (September- November)
The fall season is also a favourable and safe season for trekking to the short Everest base camp trekking. Fall weather is a bit chillier than spring weather. However, it's worth it for the mesmerizing views of the nearby peaks that you get to enjoy during this time of year. Although it is currently colder than it was in the spring, the temperatures are comfortable, the days are dry, and the vistas are stunning. The monsoon rains have also wiped the countryside clean, making it appear especially lush and verdant.

The beautiful surroundings bloom with vibrant flowers as the rainy season comes to an end, the river gushes powerfully, and the crisp weather provides you with a breathtaking perspective of the Himalayas. The 15-day Dashain celebration, during which hundreds of animals are sacrificed in honour of Durga, the Goddess of Victory, is also when Nepal celebrates its most significant festivals. Even goats are sacrificed by Nepal Airlines on the runway at the airport in Kathmandu. You will undoubtedly experience the best of the Everest region in the autumn if you are fortunate enough to have unchallenged views of Mt. Everest, the crown gem of Nepal.

Winter season (December-February)
The Winter season is not preferred by trekkers for short Everest base camp trekking. The temperature during this season fluctuates between 23-25 degree celsius during the day. At night it falls down to -20 degree centigrade. Winter is actually a terrific time for real adventure, provided you are adequately prepared for the chilly weather. Enjoy wonderful mountain views and clean skies all to yourself. You can continue your trek in winter if you bring all the necessary hiking equipment and gear up properly. Those who can hike in the cold can do so this time of year with the proper equipment, which includes warmer clothing, thermal coats, thick socks, gloves, first aid, and more.

Winter is also a great season to fly if you want to avoid competing for space with other passengers. The good news is that when people leave the area in droves to avoid the cold, the route to Everest Base Camp will be much less congested. Flight and tour charges frequently decrease right now as well.
