Trekking to Everest Base Camp in February or March

Trekking to Everest Base Camp in February or March is a great idea. In the pre-monsoon trekking season I prefer trekking in February, March and early April. After this time it gets too busy on the trail. In the month of May it can be too warm and mountain views can be hazy. Check out our 2019 or 2020 trekking dates.

I also prefer trekking to Everest when there are less risks on the trail, some parts of the trail are narrow and can have too many people on them, so trekking when there are less animals, yaks . When the lodges are not jam packed and trails have less people. This is when I want to be trekking.

Another reason I like trekking to Everest in February and March is potentially better weather for flying in and out of Lukla. Remember it can snow at any time in any month. From running treks into this region for over a decade now. I can say we have have less helicopter flights in and out of the mountains in these months.
