If you’d like to experience a different village on your return you can stay in Khumjung rather than Namche Bazaar. While you won’t find the shopping, bars, restaurants, and other amenities of Namache Bazaar, Khumjung located about two hours above, does have beautiful views of Ama Dablam and a quieter laid back vibe since it is bypassed by most trekkers.
April is the peak of the ‘Spring Season’, with more moderate temperatures and still relatively few days of precipitation. Clear mornings and cloudy afternoons are typical, with clouds clearing up just before or just after sunset. Trekkers should also be prepared for the occasional rain shower, especially towards the end of the month. At high altitudes occasional snow storms are possible.
On average there are 6 days with precipitation in April. The highest point on the trek is Thame at 3820 m. During April, expect high temperatures of around 13.5°C (56°F) and lows down to -2.5°C (28°F) at Thame.
Extra rest days and overnights can be added once the itinerary is created. However any side trips must be added in this step before the itinerary is created.
