Trekking in Everest Region - Strange World of Ice and Snow
Located in the northeast province of Nepal, Everest Region is in a world of its own. This region adds beauty with vast glaciers, icefalls, mountains, deep valleys, beautiful settlements, and mesmerizing nature. The quaint Sherpa settlement and Buddhist heritage will also be a memorable experience in this region.
Everest Trek takes you to the vast extent of land and the biggest trekking draw under Mt. Everest (8848.86 m). From famous Himalayan monasteries to the various hiking trail, there are numerous attractions in Everest Region. You will witness endless mountain views like Everest (8848.86 m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516 m), Nuptse (7861 m), Pumo Ri (7165 m), Ama Dablam (6856 m), and Lingtren (6749 m) scattered across the region.
To enter Everest Region, there is two way, i.e., airways and roadways. Your dramatic flight to Lukla from Kathmandu will be adventurous than you think. As you land at Lukla Airport, you hike up to the inner part of the Everest region.
If you are willing to spend a long time in the Himalayas, there is another switchback starting from Jiri through the green hill of Solukhumbu. You will witness an ethnically diverse section of the trek, rich in numerous flora and faunas. You will also benefit from natural acclimatization and get more time to interact with hospitable local people. You will also get a chance to experience the changing customs, traditions, and lifestyles from lower to highest altitude settlements.
Best Time to go Everest Region
December and February, and October to May are the best months for trekking in Everest Region. During these months, you will experience warm temperatures, the skies are clear, and the views of mountains are superb. Furthermore, there is less possibility of landslides or higher-up avalanches during these times, although the case is always there, regardless of when you trek.
January is also an outstanding month to trek at lower altitudes, but it can be freezing at higher terrains. Of course, high season approaches the busiest season. For more tranquil trails, consider trekking in early December before the Christmas/New Year rush; it’s somewhat colder, but the ordinarily clear skies mean the views are fantastic, and the teahouses and lodges are not so busy with trekkers.
