Adventurous and love the outdoors and culture

This trek is perfect for those without much time or who want a less strenuous trek but still get a chance to glimpse the highest mountain in the world. 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 October

October begins the most popular time to trek, with moderate temperatures, clear skies in the wake of the monsoon, and a low chance of rain and snow. In recent years, the monsoon rains have receded later with weather patterns typically stabilizing in mid-October. While the chance of snow is decreased, there is the possibility of a heavy snowfall at higher elevations. If ill-timed and prolonged, this can make it difficult to cross some passes.
