Published Date: 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.
It is better to avoid trekking in monsoon, however, also keep in mind that it doesn’t arrive at the same time every year. Sometimes monsoon doesn’t start by the end of June, whereas, some other times, it starts by early May. Also, one of the best ways to stay alert to the changing weather in the Everest region is observing the pyramid-shaped clouds. 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. It is very important to have correct weather forecast for climbers. Sometimes, most of the teams have their own meteorologist for daily weather forecasts. The records of changing weather can be found at the museum of Namche Bazar.
