About Weather condition
There are two ideal “weather windows” for Nepal. From the latter half of March until the first part of May temperatures are relatively warm, 10° to 15° warmer than in the fall. Mornings are bright and clear with the air slowly becoming hazier as the day progresses day by day. The rhododendron forests in springtime are spectacular, with color displays that are “Himalayan” in beauty. June is warm and green with very few other trekkers – the sense of solitude is much greater than other seasons. However, it is more likely to include rain showers, hazy skies, wet and muddy trail conditions and possible flight delays. Afternoon rain showers do occur in June and mountain views can be sporadic or interspersed with clouds. The fall season, the latter half of October through December, is an ideal time for the best mountain views. The days are typically sunny and clear with moderate temperatures and the evenings are usually quite cold…frosty, to be exact. Trekking to the very high Mt. Everest Base Camp region (at more than 17,000 feet) can include 0° temperatures at night and a 50% chance of some snow anytime above the 13,000 foot level. During the day, above 15,000 feet, do not anticipate temperatures above 35°. Again, since your body is taking in less than half its normal supply of oxygen, 32° will feel colder than we are accustomed to at home.
