Weather Challenge 

While doing Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season, you have to be ready for frequent changes in weather conditions. In the monsoon season, the Everest Region remains cool in the mornings and nights while warmer in the daytime.

The average temperature of the region ranges from 22ºC in the daytime to -5ºC at night. Although the weather remains unpredictable during the monsoon season, it does not rain all the time.

Rainclouds may obstruct the scenic beauty of the gorgeous Himalayas, lush valleys, and green hills in the monsoon season. However, Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season is the best time for witnessing the most pleasant scenery of the Himalayas and the skies. After the rainfalls, the skies and the surroundings look amazingly refreshing. This is the right moment everyone loves to witness at least once in a lifetime!

While on Everest Trek in Monsoon, we advise you to wear layered clothes to adjust to changing weather conditions. As it rains all of a sudden, you had better wear waterproof clothes as the outermost layer.

Everest Base Camp Trek Flight Condition

Flight condition is one of the challenges of Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season. All of a sudden, the skies might be covered by rain clouds that cause poor visibility.

Lukla Airport, also called Tenzing Hillary Airport is the only airport to begin Everest Base Camp Trek and Gokyo Lakes Trek.

The thick fog and rain clouds might frequently disturb the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flights and the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour as well.

Thus, it is wise to keep a few days extra for doing Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season.

Everest Trekking Trail Condition in Monson Season 

The best time for Everest Base Camp Trek is either spring (March, April, and May) or autumn (September, October, and November).

During the peak seasons of Everest Trek, the trail condition remains comparatively busy. International trekkers from all over the world prefer doing Everest Base Camp Trek in either of the peak seasons.

Trail condition is another challenge of Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season. As it frequently rains in this season, the trail remains muddy and slippery.

You have to be more careful while ascending or descending through the steep trails during the monsoon season.

Next, leeches and bugs also create some kind of challenge during the Monsoon season trekking to Everest Base Camp.

Most of the trails of EBC Trek lie within the Sagarmatha National Park forests. These forests remain damp with wild weeds during the monsoon season. And these insects are more active in the wet season causing more challenges to the trekkers.

Nevertheless, you can take a few precautions to fight against the challenge of leeches and bugs. Wear long-sleeved clothes and carry a handy bug repellent to get rid of these insects. Regularly check if any of these parasites are about to attack you.

Trekkers Population During the Monsoon Season

At a glance, it seems as if the entire Everest Region is only yours because you don’t see many other fellow trekkers.

Fewer travelers mean that you can befriend the trekkers from other parts of the world. In a sense, Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season is a way to expand your personal and professional bonding as well.

Scenic Attraction while you are in Everest Base Camp Trek in different Season

The most beautiful reward of the Everest Base Camp Trek in the Monsoon Season is scenic attraction. Although it rains without prior warning, the scenery after the rain stops is so attractive that no words can describe them in words.

The skies look freshening after the rainfalls and the entire surrounding looks as if burning to welcome you there. The snowcapped peaks glitter in the sun rays after the rainfall stops.

The lush valleys, icefalls, glacial lakes, glaciers, and green forests combined with the blue skies are beyond description. I think we need William Shakespeare or Spencer or Homer to reflect the beauty of the Everest Region after rainfalls in words!

Food and Accommodation

Another charm of Everest Base Camp Trek in Monsoon Season is the easy management of food and accommodation during the trip. No matter how large your group size is, food and accommodation management remains the game of the left hand!
