Best Time for the Everest Base Camp Budget Trek
Trekkers can visit the Everest region at any time of the year, but the best time for an Everest Base Camp Budget Trek is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). During these seasons, there are extended daylight hours, and you can enjoy stunning wildflowers and rhododendrons in spring and clear skies, and breathtaking mountain and landscape views in autumn.
On the other hand, the off seasons (monsoon and winter) offer a unique and exceptional Everest Base Camp trek experience. As you ascend above Namche Bazaar, the skies often clear up, and there are fewer people on the trail. Moreover, the villages and valleys will have a light dusting of snow, adding to the charm and beauty of the trek.
