The Best time to Everest High Pass Trekking:
Nepal is diverse country culturally and Naturally as we have very short distance north to South. Everest region is one of the finest trekking destination in the world as it is naturally rich with so many high mountains including Mt. Everest, Lotse, Mt. Cho-oyu, Makalu.
According to our team leaders and the experience of our porters says that September to Early December and Feb to May is the best trekking season over the Himalayas in nepal. Everest high pass indicates 3 major passes the Khombala pass, between Lobuche and Chhukung, Cholapass between Dzogla and Gokyo, Renjola pass between Lunden and Gokyo, so all of them are over 5000 m high as it is freezing during winter time, however, September to December at night the temperature will be about -20 but in a day time will be about 13-15 degree similarly in spring Feb to May the temperature will be quite warm approximate about-8 at night and early morning otherwise during the day, temperature will be about 15 degree.
Trekking over the high pass in Everest is perfect in Oct and Nov which are the best month during the year because you will have a stunning view every day, clear sky, perfect temperature and the flight is less risky to/from Lukla, but if you are not able to manage your time during this month than march and April other two months are recommended for Everest high pass trekking for adventure trekkers.
