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

We're two friends from Italy and we’re planning our summer vacation. We're thinking to get to Lhasa approximately on the 8th or 9th of August and to stay for a week. We would like to know which is your best (cheapest) offer (private or group tour) considering that we don’t have a big budget, with details about what’s included and what’s not.

Thank you so much!!!

Dear Mr. Ma***,
Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry. I wonder whether you can come to Tibet on 5th Aug, as we have 8days group tour on this date, so I can provide you some discount for the tour. If you want the tour is cheaper, then better for you to join in a group tour, private tour cannot be cheap in Aug as it is the peak season, and everything in its highest cost. And our group size is from 4 to 14 people. Or if you insist the tour on 8th or 9th Aug we can collect people based on that too, but cannot guarantee it will be a group as at least 4 people. Looking forward to your idea about it. Best regards.

Dear Mr. Jo***,
Greetings from Helen at Budgettibettour. From your inquiry, I see that you are interested in both Everest Base Camp and Namtso Lake, here we recommend one 10 days Tibet Mt. Everest plus Namtso Lake group tour to you, and we currently have one departure date on 28th of June, which is suitable for your itinerary. As you enter Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu, which takes at least three working days. If you arrive in Kathmandu on 23rd June, you can start to apply for visa on 24th June, and you'll get visa on 26th or 27th, then flying from Kathmandu to Lhasa and join tour starting on 28th June. Firstly, we will apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passports. Next, we will send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passports. Then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for visa for you. Finally, pick up your passport and Chinese Group Visa from our partner and fly to Lhasa. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Warm regards.
