This trek follows the first part of the trail to Everest Base Camp from Lukla to the village at the center of the Khumbu, Namche Bazaar. From Namche hike about the village to the Hotel Everest View for an amazing panarama that includes Mount Everest and the beautifully pointed peak of Ama Dablam. Those with a little more time can continue on to the monastery at Tengboche.

Weather Conditions in January

change start

January is one of the coldest and driest months, which makes it good for Himalayan views while wearing lots of layers. While there is little rain, skies in the hills and valleys further from the high mountains can be hazy from dust and pollution. The days are short and the nights long, so you can finally catch up on War and Peace while hiking the Himalayas. Now that’s something to be proud of! Go with the e-book version, your back or your porter’s back will thank you for it. At high altitudes, temperatures can drop to well below freezing. Even during the day, temperatures may not rise much above freezing, if at all, and the snow that does fall doesn’t melt and can become hard and icy. This can make crossing high passes more difficult. During this season it may be wise to bring crampons or at a minimum a good trekking pole.
