The weather is one of the most important factor to look at when deciding to trek to Everest Panorama Trek. It is best suited to trek during the spring and the autumn. During the winters and monsoon, it becomes difficult to trek due to heavy snowfall, cold temperature and slippery trails.
January – February
This time is the coldest, especially from early January to early February. This when there is heavy snowfall in the mountain and can result to extreme cold temperature. Though the day time may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the night time would be extremely cold. It would not be suggested to trek during this time because the trek is challenging itself and the snow would make it more tough.
March – April
This is the best time of the season to trek in the Everest Panorama Trek. The weather is very favorable through the trek. Stunning views of the Himalaya ranges and glaciers will be seen. Temperatures may start increasing from the mid of March and with clear skies, snow mountains will be seen at their best. Many trekkers often succeed their expedition in this time.
May – June
This is also the perfect time for trekking right before the rainfall. Nepal starts its rainfall from the end of June till mid of August. The season of spring and summer makes the trek much more enjoyable.
July – August
The rainfall hits at its peak during this time. Due to rainfall, it would not be advisable to trek during this season as the difficulty would rise. The trails would be very slippery. Flights to Lukla may get cancelled due to landslides and flooding.
September – October
This is also one of the perfect season for the Everest Panorama trek. This season is the peak of tourists due to the favorable weather. As the monsoon slowly ends, a perfect trekking climate sets itself. The temperature goes up to 20 degrees in the day time and falls down to 5 degrees during the night time. This season is when trekkers enjoy trekking the most, with a clear sky, and an amazing view of the mountains. It is highly recommended as it’s the best time for the Everest Base Camp trek, usually between mid-September to end. Tourists in this season are also attracted by the main festival of Nepal; Dashain and Tihar.
November – December
As winter slowly begins, snow falls begins in the Himalaya region and it eventually tough to trek. Nights will start to get colder. November is the busy season as it is the clearest month with sparkling days. The day time temperatures are very stable and constant and due to this, the view of the clear blue sky and the mountain is phenomenal. From December, he temperature starts to get cold and begins to snow.
Please Note: The weather in the Himalaya can be unpredictable and the temperature may change quickly from day to night.
In this trek, we will be acclimatizing in two places; Namche Bazaar. Altitude sickness is commonly faced by many trekkers and will need immediate treatment and shouldn’t be left ignored.

Our trekking leader and guide have extensive first aid training and well -experienced in the Himalaya we urge to inform your group leader and guide at first signs of the symptoms, we guarantee your health will be at reliable hands. Your trek leader or guide will suggest precautions. The best way is to take your time and drink plenty of water at least 4 liters a day. If it is severe the only cure for altitude sickness is to descend immediately.
