Everest base camp weather forecast 2017 2017-12-11 15:57:22

Since the successful summit of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa of Mt. Everest, trekking to the Everest base camp has been one of the most desired journeys in Nepal. You shall be making through dense forest, crossing rivers, streams, via suspension bridges, passing several traditional villages, and witnessing natural beauty and soaring mountains. Everest base camp weather forecast for 2017 may not be quite certain since the weather in the Everest region changes a lot. You might have to know the weather forecasts of the Khumbu region, Namche Bazar, Lukla, Kala Patthar etc. The temperature at the summit is always freezing, which might drop to -600C during January. However, the major challenge that you shall face in this journey isn’t the freezing weather, but the forceful and chilly wind. The speed of this hurricane force wind reaches more than 285 km/hr during the winter. However, during May, the wind calms down, which is why this is one of the most favorable months to do the trekking and climbing. During June to September, the Indian Monsoon brings moisture to the Everest region. December to February are cold, March to May and September to November are an ideal time for doing the Everest trek. You shall experience one of the coldest days at the base camp after 15th of December to the late January. However, during the spring months, the temperature here warms up quickly. Whatever be the months you are trying to do trekking here, you must stick to the Everest base camp weather forecast.

If you see the top of the peak covered by this cloud at a just right angle, the wind speed isn’t too severe. You shall find a weather station at an altitude of 5,079m at Lobuche.

Everest base camp trek reviews 2017-12-11 15:52:34

We requested Mr. John J. Phillip for the Everest base camp trek review; we had a great opportunity to accompany him to the base camp of Mt. Everest. Before I thank the Everest Base Camp Tours for their trekking service, and Gopal for his humor and encouragement, I would want to remember the cold, the night that snowed, and the steep inclines. After we land at Lukla, we met our trekking guide Gopal. Passing several villages, via Phakding, we reached Namche Bazar to witness the very first glimpse of Mt. Everest. I was great to explore the museum, I remember, Gopal was of great help to translate the writings and descriptions. We also saw some of the old pictures of Khumbu region, and, spoiler alert, you will get to see how real the climate change is once you witness these pictures. It’s funny to remember how I felt racing the whole route ahead. However, it was great to watch every flora and fauna, passing several valleys taking our team close to the mountain. During my trek to Tengboche from Namche Bazar, I found lots of places to buy a chocolate bar and water. As we were near to the monastery, my wife experienced hallucination. It was great to spend the night there at Tengboche, to watch snowfall as we were having Dal Bhat. Next morning, we made through snow and made all the way to Dingboche. We enjoyed playing cards there, forgetting aches and pain we had. Slowly, counting our steps, we made to Lobuche, in the thin air, witnessing the staggering views of mountains. I cannot describe the beauty, the exhaustion, little aching headache, and the mountains as we reached to the base camp. Thank you Phurba, and Gopal for taking us to the Everest base camp. I would also like to thank Everest Base Camp Tours for arranging the food and accommodation before we reach to the destination. I don’t know how my does this count as Everest base camp trek review but all the aspiring trekkers shall find how worth it is to be at the base of the world’s giant mountain.

Trekking to the base of the world’s highest peak, the Mt. Everest is one of the most desired treks in the world among the trekking enthusiasts. The Everest Base Camp temperature is difficult to predict with certainty, as the weather is pretty unpredictable in the Everest region. Though, the climate-wise weather and temperature can be expected to a great extent, depending solely upon the experienced prediction may not always be true. This doesn’t mean you would be exploring the horrors of unstable weather; March to May and September to November are the best times to do trekking in the Everest region of Nepal. The temperature ranges from as high as 250C to as low as -200C within a single day of your trek. The temperature in the base camp and at the several places throughout your trekking route depends upon the month you are trekking. The temperature you have to make through shall not be so problematic in comparison to the hurricanes that comes occasionally. However, you won’t have to face the wind if you are trekking in the month of May, which is why this is considered the best month of the year for the trek. However, trekking during the month of May to March and September to November mean going through the crowd of trekkers; with October as the busiest month of all. Not all the trekkers love trekking in the busy trail; they love to explore and absorb the nature alone. However, some other travel in a group to make their memories together more memorable. However you trek, Everest base camp trek surely is one of the lifetime adventure and experience in the wonders of nature. You shall see the difference in the Everest base camp temperature in the areas up to 3,500m altitude and the areas over 4,000m altitude.
