Best Time to do Everest Panorama Trek
Weather is considered the prominent factor to determine the perfect time to do Everest View Trek. Despite the pros and cons of trekking in different seasons, local people, passionate trekkers, and adventurers trek to EBC all year round. The best time to go on the Everest Panorama trek is from March to May and October to December which falls under Spring and Autumn seasons respectively. These seasons have cloudless weather resulting in a crystal clear sky with minimum rainfall and a warm favorable temperature.
Trekking during winter (December to February) provides you with breathtaking views nonetheless, the trekking trails are covered with thick snow and extremely cold temperatures make it more taxing. Likewise, in the summer season trails will be wet and slippery because the summer season coexists with the monsoon season in Nepal.
January to February
From early January to early February is the coldest time of the year. There will be heavy snowfall along with a freezing temperature in a trekking region. Despite the extremely bitter cold, a trek during these winter months is possible. Daytime may have warm and splendid clear skies with a great view whereas at night time it will be extremely cold. If you can tolerate the coldness of winter, you get to enjoy the jaw-dropping views of the winter season not unlike any other time of the year. We (Eternal Himalaya) do our best to carry out the safe trek, during winter. Those who have an allergy to cold shouldn't trek during these winter months.
March to April
Due to suitable whether it is the best month for Everest Panorama Trek. The temperature begins to get warmer in March as the spring season begins this month and from mid- March the temperature rises. With very clear weather, you can get a clear view of the beautiful Himalayas and landscapes. Dormant flora and fauna become active and lively enjoying the warm green environment full of spring bloom flowers.
May to June
These months also provide the perfect weather for the Everest Paranoma Trek. So, It is an ideal time for trekking, just before the rainy season. Between the end of June and mid-August, the rainy season takes place in Nepal. The May to June period is a blend of spring, summer, and monsoon.
July to August
During this time Nepal received a maximum amount of rainfall. Due to frequent rainfall, the trails become wet and slippery making them more challenging. It will rain heavily at this time resulting in flights to/from Lukla getting canceled before or after the trip depending upon the weather of the day. Despite the difficulties, it is achievable. Moreover, the trails will be less crowded and you can behold the breathtaking beauty of waterfalls.
September to October
It is another ideal time for the Everest panorama trek. As the rainy season slowly comes to an end, the sky becomes crystal clear, providing an amazing view of mountain scenery and a perfect trekking climate for the trekkers. Therefore, most trekkers like to trek during these months.
November to December
Winter will set in along with snowfall in the Himalayan region and Night time gets colder making it more challenging to trek. If you can withstand the cold it is also the perfect time to go for Everest View Trek and even winter season views are stunning as well. It's easy to trek in November as days are bright with dazzling sunlight, and the terrific panoramic view of mountains. Despite the cold nights, the daytime temperature remains stable whereas in December because snow temperature goes extremely low.
Trekking for hours at a high altitude can make your body crave a nutritional meal packed with carbs and proteins etc. While on the trek, you will dine at local lodges/teahouses where they serve Asian, local traditions, and continental cuisine in addition to beverages. There are fewer options on Menu however, these teahouses/Lodges provide warm and deliciously nutritious meals.

Moreover, we arrange a welcome and farewell dinner for our guests.

Avoid meat items completely while trekking because the meat in trek areas may not be fresh and hygienic for consumption. Thus, vegetarian meals are highly suggested.
Difficulty Level of Everest Panorama Trek
Everest Panorama Trek is easier in comparison to other well-known treks of the Everest region. Even though it is an easy trek, steep ascends and descends and rugged terrain can challenge your physical endurance. Moreover, you do not need technical skills and experience. People of any age group and beginners can go for this trek. If you have a previous record of medical conditions related to heart, lungs, and blood diseases, we request you to inform us before booking this trek.
A Day on a Trek
The day will always start with an early morning breakfast. After that, we will pack all our bags and set out on a day trek from around 7 am to 8 am, which depends upon the trek's nature and duration. Then after hiking for three to four hours or more, we will take a break to have lunch, rest for about an hour, and carry on the trek.
Generally, afternoon walks are shorter about two to three hours. Right after we reach the lodge/teahouse we will fuel our body with dietary food, and explore nearby places.
Dinner will be served between 6 pm to 7 pm. After dinner, you can relax and enjoy yourself by having friendly conversations with your teammates. Then your trekking guide/team leader will give a briefing about the next day's plan. After that, you can go to bed or play some board games or watch whatever is available.
Tengboche at the height of 3,875m is the maximum altitude you will reach in the Everest Panorama Trek. Our itinerary consists of staying 2 nights in Namche Bazaar for effective acclimation to the mountain climate. Therefore, the possibility of altitude sickness is minimal.
To prevent it you just have to climb gradually, don’t skip the acclimatization period, and drink enough water. Besides that avoid alcohol and smoking. Our trek leader/guide are experts in emergency first aid. In case of severe mountain sickness, a person has to descend immediately to cure it. Depending on the condition of the sick person, your trek leader/guide decides whether to carry on or stop the trek.
We recommend you get a vaccination against diphtheria, typhoid, meningococcal meningitis, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, tetanus, Japanese encephalitis, BCG(tuberculosis), polio, rabies, and malaria. However, the requirement for vaccination keeps changing depending on the situation. In case of current changes in vaccination requirements, you have to be up to date and check the situation of the place before traveling. Consult your doctor or GP at least 2 months before the trek about the immunization you require to travel safely.
Travelers must submit the ‘Fully vaccinated Covid 19’ immunization certificate.
Trekking in Group/Single
We handle all group sizes whether it be small (private trek) or large size trekking groups. Group discount is applicable when your group consists of more than 5 people and should have your persons (family, friends, or colleagues) in the team otherwise the price remains the same for private touring or group joining. If you are interested in joining the fixed group for this trip please keep checking the departure link when it's available we will send you complete info (date and price) related to the trek or you can book an entire private trip at a reasonable cost. Every group will be led by a team leader/ guide and one porter for two trekkers. In case your group exceeds more than 10 people we will provide an assistant guide.
Being an easy trek with a very minute chance of altitude sickness, yet it involves uncertain risk as this trek takes place at high altitudes. Though travel insurance might not be that essential in Everest Panorama Trek, it will back you up at times of crisis. Moreover, travel insurance is mandatory for every high-elevation trek.
Please ensure that your policy covers the expenses of flight cancellation, medical bills, loss/theft of personal belongings, and helicopter rescue from high altitude. Clients are required to send comprehensive information about their insurance after booking a trek.
Accommodation for three nights in Kathmandu with only breakfast is included in the package except lunch and dinner are up to the clients.
All our precious clients have to pay for international airfare and airport departure tax. Other additional expenses that clients are required to cover are travel insurance, Nepal Tourist visa fee, tips for trekking staff, personal trekking, and climbing equipment. All meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are provided during the trek but clients will have to bring extra money with them while trekking to cover the cost of table drinks (alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages), snacks, souvenirs, hot shower, charging devices, etc.
Since Nepalese currency is only accepted in the Everest region, we suggest you bring enough Nepali rupees during the trek for your extra personal expenses.
Wi-Fi/Internet service and Communication
While trekking, Wi-Fi/Internet service can be accessed from local lodges where you will be staying overnight but they will charge you for the usage and has an unstable connection so it can get slow. In Kathmandu wi-fi is available in all the restaurants, cafes, and hotels.
Communication is done by phone after reaching a high altitude for safety purposes. Once a day Eternal Himalaya will contact the team leader/guide to keep a tab on the team and to ensure that all the team members are safe and secure. From Kathmandu, you can buy a local sim with data to use the internet and to call in an emergency. Still, the mobile signal is weak at some spots of trekking trails which also depends on the network you are using.
Electricity and Drinking water on the trek
There is electricity available throughout the lodges of the Everest region along with a charging facility. Please be advised, that in some places you have to pay a certain amount of money to charge your devices. Hence, we suggest you carry either a solar charger or an extra battery.
Local lodges and shops found on the way sell mineral water, however, it will pollute the environment. Therefore, we highly suggest you carry a water bottle and refill it with boiled or filtered water which is easily available from the local lodge/teahouse at a low price.
Don’t drink the water from the taps, ponds, wells, and rivers in the trekking regions as it will cause serious health issues related to water-borne diseases.

How much luggage can I take during Everest Panorama Trek?
The weight limit of the luggage is 9 kg per trekker. We abstained from carrying more than 18kg by our porter because one porter carried two trekker’s luggage at the same time. If you want to bring more luggage with you, we can arrange an extra porter for that. We request trekkers to carry their essential documents and valuables in a separate personal daypack.
Eternal Himalaya provides storing facilities for your excess luggage for free.
Before starting the trek we will recheck all equipment, gear, and essentials during a briefing to reassure and verify everything for your convenience.
The magnificent beauty of the Himalayas is unparalleled yet extremely fragile enough to disrupt the ecosystem of the mountain region. The growing local population and increasing numbers of trekkers impact the environment of Mountain regions. Eternal Himalaya works side by side with the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to preserve and protect the beauty of the environment for future trekkers to relish and explore.
We are fully aware of the consequences of tourism in mountainous regions, so we encourage the trekkers to minimize the negative impact on nature as much as possible. As garbage disposal is a major issue, we request our clients to dispose of the litter in provided bins and if there are no bins at a high altitude you can carry it to dispose of later. Trekkers can go for eco-friendly alternatives such as carrying reusable water bottles to refill the boiled/filtered water rather than buying bottled mineral water and using water sparingly. Water resources should not be polluted with trash.
Travelers can reward with tips at their discretion based on the quality of services provided by them. As a part of our Nepali culture, Nepalese people accept tips as a way to express their appreciation.
Due to western influence in the trekking sector, trekking staff such as porters and guides have become accustomed to expecting a tip from clients. If you’ve had good service and a wonderful experience during the trip and want to tip our porters and guides, we recommend giving tips collectively as a group at the end of the trip.
