Temperatures below freezing point and the biting wind blowing across the Himalayas aren't something you wish to be looking forward to. However, there is also the best time for you to undertake the Everest Base Camp trek to create an unforgettable journey of a lifetime. The best time of the year for the Everest Region trek is September-December and March-May as the weather is mild and favorable, and there's less chance of problematic snowfalls.
The monsoon season (June-September) is not the recommended time due to rainfall and cloudy skies. On the other hand, the winter season (January and February) brings extreme cold as the temperatures drop below freezing point, even during the day. Attractions to see on the Everest Trekking
