Additional Tip: Mount Everest in Different Seasons

  • 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

Dear Ms. Pa***,

Greetings from Nancy at Budget Tibet Tour, thanks for visiting our website and sending your inquiry.  At present we do not set any date in Oct 2020, and we can set any date based on yours, and if possible I hope you can come in next half of Oct as all the cost would be cheaper and less people there.

There is environment bus in Kailash, and people can take about 10 km with bus taking, but after that, no vehicle will be available during the trekking, so if your husband cannot take trekking, he has to rest in hotel with our driver and wait all of you come back. And also there is horse hire, people can hire a horse to ride, but as the road off mountain, because it is quite cliffy, so people are not allowed to ride a horse and need to take foot on own. And also the highest mountain pass will be around 5300meters high. So better for him to rest in hotel. But we will visit the holy lake without problem. I will send you more details by email, please check it there, best regards.
