Part 2. Everest Base Camp Weather

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Answered by Nancy

Dear Mo***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. Sorry we do not have any group tour in Jan or Feb to Kailash as there will be heavy snow and the road will be blocked, and also the area would be closed, and no one do the business there, no hotel, no restaurants there. So from Nov to March we would not send any groups there.
If you would like to do this tour, you must plan it from April to Oct. and at present we have the group tour in next 6th May and 29th May, and we will have more available date in future. if you are interested in joining in this, please kindly let me know. Best regards.
