Best Time to Everest View Trek

The best time to visit the Everest View Trek is during the two main trekking seasons namely pre monsoon (spring) and post monsoon (autumn) periods. These two seasons offer the most favorable weather and spectacular views, making your trekking experience enjoyable and memorable. We can do Everest View Trek throughout the year but the weather is quickly changeable during the summer and winter season, which makes it terrible to get to the target on time due to landslides and changeable weather.

Spring season (pre monsoon) - March to May

Spring is one of the best times for the Everest view Trek. During this season, the weather will be generally stable, with mild temperatures during the day and clear skies, providing excellent visibility of the surrounding mountains including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Aamadoblam and more. The trekking trail is decorated with vibrant rhododendron blooms, creating a colorful and picturesque landscape. The temperatures are pleasant, making it a comfortable time for hiking and the days are longer, allowing for more exploration. So, the spring is the best and recommended time for trekking and climbing in Nepal. 

Autumn season (Post monsoon) - September to November

Autumn is another popular and recommended season for the Everest View Trek. The weather will be dry, and the skies are generally clear, offering breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks. The temperatures are moderate, and the conditions are favorable for hiking. Autumn is also known as the post-monsoon season, so the air is crisp and clean after the rains, providing surprising vistas of the surrounding mountains and landscapes. You might have the opportunity to witness local festivals like Dashain and Tihar, which add a cultural touch to your trekking experience. While autumn is popular and can attract a higher number of trekkers, the atmosphere is generally lively and energetic.

Summer and winter season (July to August & November to February):-

Everest View Trek is possible during the summer and winter seasons but can be more challenging compared to the preferred trekking seasons of spring and autumn. Summer is not the most recommended time due to the challenging weather conditions and potential risks involved. Winter season can be suitable for experienced trekkers but you have to prepare for the cold conditions and have the appropriate gear and equipment.

However, the weather and trail conditions may not be as favorable and you may encounter more challenges, such as rain and snow during the winter months (December to February) and  the possibility of monsoon rains and leeches during the summer months (June to August). This is not a good time for trekking in the Everest Region of Nepal including Everest View Trek. 

Everest View Trek Difficulty

The Everest View Trek is considered a moderate-level trek, suitable for those with a reasonable level of physical fitness and some previous trekking experience. A moderate level of physical fitness is recommended for this trek. Regular cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and stamina training will help prepare your body for the difficulty of trekking at higher altitudes.

While it's not as strenuous as the full Everest Base Camp trek and other trekking routes in the Everest Region, but it has presented its own set of challenges due to the altitude and varying terrain.

The Everest view trek leads you ascend to higher altitudes, the air becomes thinner, which can lead to altitude-related issues such as altitude sickness. The Everest View Trek reaches a maximum altitude of around 3,900 meters (12795.28 feet) at Tengboche, where altitude-related symptoms can start to appear.

The Everest View trekking trail is well-maintained paths to rocky and uneven terrain. There are some steep ascents and descents, particularly in sections like the climb to Namche Bazaar and Tengboche Monastery. While technical climbing skills are not required, a good level of fitness and suitable footwear are essential to walk on the terrain comfortably.

The Everest View trek normally takes about 7-9 days to complete, depending on your pace and itinerary. Each day might require walking for 5-7 hours or more. The pace can be challenging, especially at higher altitudes where the reduced oxygen levels can affect your energy levels.
The weather in the Everest region can be changeable, even during the best trekking seasons. You might have chilly mornings and evenings, especially at higher altitudes.

Proper preparation, including physical training, understanding the itinerary, and being aware of the potential risks of altitude sickness, will greatly improve your trekking experience on the Everest View Trek. If you're unsure about your fitness level or any medical concerns, it's advisable to consult with a doctor or your trekking organizer before starting the trek.

Food, Water and Accommodation during the  Everest View Trek 

Accommodation:

Teahouses or lodges are the main accommodation options along the Everest View Trek. These lodges are well managed with the availability of lots of accommodations and restaurants.  These are basic but comfortable guest houses that provide rooms with beds, blankets, and sometimes shared bathrooms.

If you want to use luxury lodges along the Everest View Trek, there are also premium luxury lodges available in a few places. Every different place has different quality of the lodges and might become more basic as you gain altitude, so you can choose the best lodge for accommodations to your suitable budget.  The Himalayan yeti home, Everest View Hotel and Everest Summit lodge are the luxury lodges along the Everest View Trek.

Food:

Every teahouses and lodges along the trek offer a variety of meals to keep trekkers nourished and energized. The food menu with nearly identical food items along the trek offer a variety of food options, including both local Nepali and more familiar western dishes.  The cooks are essentially skilled, yet the meal may have a taste that differs from that of western cuisine.
Some common food items you might find are dal bhat (a traditional Nepali meal of rice and lentil soup), noodle soups, Momos, pasta, fried rice, pancakes, eggs, Potatoes and a range of snacks. While the food is usually hearty and satisfying, the meal options might become more limited and expensive as you go higher due to the logistical challenges of transportation. We advise you to try vegetarian recipes, because meat will be limited and not fresh in the mountains.

Water:

Drinking water is most important for staying hydrated during the trek in the Himalayas. You can purchase bottled water at tea houses but purchasing bottled water becomes more expensive as you ascend to higher altitudes. We recommended bringing your own reusable water bottle for drinking water during the Everest View Trek.

The cost of single bottle water can range from 100 to 500 Nepali rupees at elevated places. Reusable water bottles are beneficial to save costs and minimize plastic waste. You have to use water purification tablets or filters to treat water from local sources. This system is portable and effective solutions will enable you to treat water from local sources, which ensure safe and clean drinking water throughout the trek. Boiled water is also commonly available at tea houses but they charge a small fee and are a safer option. Our team will provide guidance on the proper usage of water purification methods, ensuring your hydration needs are met responsibly and economically during the journey.

There is good mobile network service around the Everest base camp trekking area but not around Gokyo Valley and Chukkung Valley. The internet service is available in the whole of the Everest Region but teahouses and lodges provide the internet with some extra charges. In case of not have a Nepali sim card, our Nepali guide will help you contact your family and update the head office about the trek. 

Because traveling is a part of human life and tourism is as old as human civilization, we have been working to make travel more enjoyable. 

Acclimatization:

When traveling to higher elevations in the high Himalayan region, high altitude sickness is a regular problem. Although it develops fairly quickly, the symptoms can be avoided. If you have prior high-altitude trekking experience, it might be preferable, but if not, you should take precautions to avoid high-altitude sickness if you plan to walk over three thousand meters. In order to avoid altitude sickness while trekking in Nepal, you should walk carefully, drink enough water, abstain from alcohol, ascend higher, and sleep at low elevation. You should also spend two nights for every 500 meters over the elevation of 3500 meters. All of our trekking routes are adaptable and include days for acclimatization. Your health and safety come first so that you may complete the trek without incident. In case things worsen, we give you some essential medications to help with an emergency rescue. 

As a result, you must advise your Guide or Leader of your health status each day. Based on his reaction, he will decide whether or not to let you continue on your trip.

Tipping Information:

During your tour, trekking, and other activities in Nepal, the guide, porter, driver, and all other employees who work in the tourism industry expect tips. Tipping is how customers evaluate service providers, and service providers accept tips at the end of a journey. Travelers often tip 10% of their billable amount, but you can give more or less depending on the quality of the service. 

Therefore, it is crucial that the High Pass Adventure working team takes good care of you at all times while you are visiting Nepal, is inspired by exceptional service, and provides inspirational once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

 Trip Extension:

After finishing the walk, if you have extra time, you can engage in other activities or go on another quick trek in Nepal. Chitwan National Park and Bardiya National Park for jungle safari excursions are only two of our many short travel packages and adventure activities. You can go sightseeing in Pokhara, go trekking in Nagarkot or Dhampus, or go rafting for the day on the Trisuli River. 

Paragliding, kayaking, ultra light flight, bungee jumping, and mountain biking are examples of adventure sports. These are all optional add-on activities to your package that are not included in the price. If you choose to participate in these activities with us after your vacation, we will organize them at a fair price and give you a generous discount.

Getting There: Nepal 

Between China's Tibet Autonomous Region and India, Nepal is a landlocked Himalayan nation. It has eight of the top ten mountains in the world, including Mount Everest. There are numerous points from China and India where one can enter Nepal by land. Tourist visas for Nepal are available on arrival at all Indian and Chinese borders if you are traveling there by land. There are numerous foreign airlines providing nonstop connecting flights to Nepal if you're arriving by air. Nepal Airlines, Turkish Air, Thai Airways, Gulf Air, Qatar Air, Jet Airways, Air India, Biman Bangladesh, Lufthansa, Oman Air, Travel Dubai, Air Arabia, and Air China are a few of the well-known airlines that fly to Nepal. From China or India, one can also go overland. Please check your flight and get in touch with us before arriving in Nepal. At the airport in Nepal, you can easily obtain a on arrival visa.

Visa and passport information

Except for Indian passport holders, all foreign visitors to Nepal need a visa; however, you must have a passport with a six-month validity date in order to apply for a tourist visa. At the Tribhuvan International Airport and the Chinese-Indian border in Tibet, visas are available on arrival. To apply for a visa to enter Nepal, you must have a color photograph in PP size. Please click this link for more details about Visa Information. 

Money exchange rate and prices

If you're seeking for the best foreign exchange rates and locations in Nepal, you may easily exchange the majority of your foreign currency at a local bank or authorized money exchange facility in a well-known tourist destination. The Nepal Rastra Bank controls all exchange rates (Center Bank of Nepal). You can exchange small amounts of money at the hotel if you want to. Because our banks will not take dirty or old notes, kindly bring clean and fresh notes.

In order to avoid the time-consuming processes associated with cards and traveler's checks, Nepalese people typically prefer cash in hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, and other locations. You can use an ATM to get cash (in Nepali Rupees) if you have a credit or debit card. In the main tourist city, there are a number of ATM counters with 24-hour service. If you use a card, the maximum withdrawal amount is between 30,000 and 35,000 rupees at once, plus a processing fee of 500 rupees. 

You must convert your money in Kathmandu or Pokhara before the hike because the majority of trekking routes do not offer a facility for international currency exchange. Additionally, inquire about the amount of money required for a Himalayan trek from your trekking operator or guide.

Safety and security

When traveling in Nepal, safety and security are crucial issues to consider both on the way to in and out. We are here for you at all times, and we promise to provide the greatest service to all of our cherished clients. Our guides have extensive training in the field of trekking and broad understanding of first aid items. Because it rises more than 4000 m above sea level, it is essential for hiking in Nepal. Because health is crucial, if a trekker becomes ill from the high altitude, our knowledgeable guide discusses the necessary medications and decides to continue the trek while organizing the emergency rescue.

You must be cautious when hiking trails pass one other because they are not wide enough to do so. During the busiest trekking season, there are lots of porters, yaks, mules, and Jokpe along the trail. You must stay on the safe side if you encounter them on a bridge or in a confined space because otherwise they may force you over the edge.

Safe drinking water

For a healthy body while traveling and staying hydrated, clean water is essential. It will be the most effective method of completing the Himalayan journey. If not, getting sick and having diarrhea is simple. Almost everywhere during the Nepalese tea house trip, but not during the camping trek, sells bottled water. Unfortunately, bottled water is very pricey. 

Please bring good water bottles (for boiling water) and water purification tablets or water filter bottles since plastic bottles are detrimental for the environment. Reusable water bottles are a good idea because they help keep the mountain clean. If you are concerned about finding a typical water tap to fill up your bottles in the trekking region of Nepal, they are very simple to locate. It can be found in rivers, streams, and lodges.

Travel insurance and insurance policy

Nepal hiking tours: The difficulty levels of the Himalayas range from easy to tough. As a result of the Himalayan climate changing, there is a risk of high altitude and potential mishap. 

Trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas demands practical trekking abilities at high altitudes (above 4,000 meters), so travel insurance is essential. If an accident occurs during a trip and requires medical attention or evacuation, the cost of returning to a city and receiving treatment may be significant. Therefore, you must ensure that your insurance covers the price of an air ambulance, medical care, and any risks associated with travel, such as delayed flights and lost, stolen, damaged, or missing baggage. Your complete itinerary while visiting Nepal should be covered by your insurance policy. Make sure your insurance policy covers hikes higher than 5,500 meters. If not, you will be responsible for all unforeseen costs associated with your trek through Nepal. 

All trekkers must send a copy of their certificate from their comprehensive travel insurance policy to High Pass Adventure as part of the booking process for trekking and climbing in Nepal.

High altitude sickness information

Mountain sickness is another name for high altitude sickness. You must be aware of high altitude sickness symptoms since they arise rapidly if you hike or ascend to a higher elevation. Here are some details if you're curious as to why it occurs. The air pressure is the main cause of altitude sickness. Your body needs time to adapt to the shift in air pressure when you travel to higher elevations since the air pressure decreases and there is less oxygen present. According to doctors, If you are at sea level, it begins at 8,000 feet (2400 meters).

1) Types 

There are three types of altitude sickness:

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): it is very common and symptoms feel like a tiredness, dizzy, headache, thirsty, muscle aches, nausea 

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): it is effect in the lungs, which can be very dangerous and hard to do life threatening

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): it is effective in the brain and most difficult to treat and you need to go to hospital attention the right way. 

2) Cause 

Following are the causes of high altitude sickness:

Generally living near sea level and travel to a high elevation 

Had the sickness before

Climbing quickly

Not being acclimatized to the altitude

Drinking alcohol when you ascend 

Medical problems of heart, nervous or lungs 

3) Symptoms

These symptoms will appear depending on your speed to climb and how hard you push. Symptoms range from normal to serious. They can affect the nervous system, lungs, muscles, and heart.

Here are symptoms of High Altitude Sickness:

Difficulty sleeping

Dizziness 

Fatigue

Headache

Loss of appetite

Nausea or vomiting

Rapid Pulse (Heart Rate)

Short breath with action

Blue color of skin or gray soft skin 

Chest tightness or blocking

Confusion

Dry cough or coughing with blood

Cannot walk in a straight line 

4) Prevention 

Important keys to preventing of High Altitude Sickness are:

Climb the mountain gradually. 

Stop every 2,000 feet (600 meters) of climb above 8,000 feet (2,400 meters) and one or two nights sleep there.

Sleep at a lower altitude when possible.

Make sure that you have the ability to quickly descend if needed.

Learn how to recognize early symptoms of mountain sickness.

If you plan on climbing quickly, or climbing to a high altitude, ask your provider about medicines that may help.

If you are at risk for a low red blood cell count (anemia), ask your provider if your planned trip is safe. Also ask if an iron supplement is right for you. Anemia lowers the amount of oxygen in your blood. This makes you more likely to have mountain sickness.

5) While climbing, you should follow these rules:

Drink plenty of water

Climb slowly.

Take it easy

Do not drink alcohol.

Eat regular meals that are high in carbohydrates.

Sleep lower elevation 

Take a medication (diomax) according to doctor
