Best Time to Visit Tibet Mt. Everest Base Camp

Every tourist's destination has a best time to visit, and Tibet Mt. Everest Base Camp is not exceptional. For most of tourists, Tibet is not only a dreamed land but also a tough land, and to pick up a good time to travel to Tibet Mt. Everest Base Camp must be stressed.

Winter is obviously too cold and summer sees more rains and clouds; see below what are the best times to visit Tibet Mt. Everest Base Camp

Top Best Time A: Mid-April to Mid-June

From April, May and middle-June is said to be the best time to visit the base camp. During this time period it's not as cold as in winter and the peak of Mount Everest can be seen very clearly. April and May are also the best times for people climbing to the top of Mount Everest.

Top Best Time B: Mid-September to Mid-October

After the monsoon and before the harsh winter, there's a small window of seeing the best state of Mount Everest. It lasts from September to November and there will be also many people trying to climb to the top of Mount Everest than in the spring.

Seasons of Everest

  • Winter: November to February, dominated by the southward migration of the northern hemisphere jet stream which brings high winds, cold temperatures and on occasion heavy snow falls. Winter can be a great time for trekking as the crowds try to avoid the cold clear out. Day temperatures are comfortable and sunny skies prevail, however it can get well below freezing at night.
  • Spring (pre monsoon): March until the unset of the monsoon. Ideal times to trek. Rain is infrequent and day temperatures are warm. Lots of trekkers and climbers are out in t-shirts
  • Monsoon season: From end of June to end of August is influenced by the Indian monsoon, which brings frequent rainfall and cloudy days. Clouds and rain generally obscure the peaks and it's not an ideal time to visit compared with other seasons. But since precipitation in Tibet is one of the least in the world, so there is still some chance to see despite the monsoon rain. Mt. Everest in clouds

  • Autumn (post monsoon): from the end of monsoon until temperatures get cold in December. Good time for trekking with generally clear days and comfortable temperatures.
  • It's not ideal to travel to the region between July and August once the monsoon sets in. Cloudy weather and rain obscure the peaks and it's harder to see the peak of the Everest.
  • Most of the precipitation that falls in the base camp region occurs during the monsoon season of July and August, the rest of the year is fairly dry

I want to do tour from Kathmondu, coming from USA. what do you recommand in August 2019? Thanks.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Mr. Mi***, 

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet tour, and I am glad to be at your service. Please kindly let me know your nationality firstly since your tour will be involved with Kailash. If you will enter Tibet from Kathmandu, you must leave 3 working days in Kathmandu for you to apply your China visa there, and also if you would like to visit Kailash for sure, I recommend you fly from Kathmandu to Lhasa to join in a group tour as almost all the group tour start from Lhasa. I recommend you to fly to China from USA then go to Kathmandu after the tour as we can drop off you at the border so you can go Kathmandu by overland. Anyway I will send you more details by email. Best regards.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Ma***, 

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet tour, and I am glad to be at your service. As we do not have group to Guge, but we do have 15days Lhasa to Kailash trekking pilgrim tour on 15th May and 10th June, both dates are available for you to join in. 10th June group tour will come cross the Saga Dawa festival in Kailash on 17th June, so if you can make it that would be great. Your age is quite young, please worry free, and most of our clients were your same age, some are more than 70 years old even did the tour quite well, and 3days pilgrim tour would be no problem. You will leave most of your luggage in hotel, and carry the necessary stuff, and also there are some tea house there providing hot water, simple food and basic shelter for sleeping, but of course please do not expect too high about it. And we will do the outer circle for the pilgrim trekking which will be 54km in total. I will send you more details to your email please check it there. Best regards.
