With an altitude of 5200m, Everest Base Camp is generally the highest place common travelers can go. And right because of its extremely high altitude, climate and temperature of Everest Base Camp (EBC) is quite different from that of other places and regions.
Due to the rather high altitude, Mount Everest is covered by snow all year round and the climate here on the mountain is quite harsh. There are lots of large glaciers formed in the valley with the most famous one being the Rongbuk Glacier consisting of eastern, western and middle Rongbuk glaciers. The most distinctive feature of the climate of EBC may be the extremely big temperature difference in the daytime and at night. And in different seasons and time, the climate and temperature also vary. In winter, it can be snowy in EBC and you are never recommended to travel to EBC at that time. During July and August, it’s a little bit rainy and the road condition can be very bad, so you are not recommended to travel to EBC during that period either.
The best time to travel to EBC is from early March to the end of October except July and August. During this time, the climate is relative good and the temperature is comparatively mild. But you should remember that, although in the daytime, with the sunshine, it can be warm at EBC with a possible temperature of around 10℃, it is quite cold at night which is sure to be below 0℃ even in summer.
Luckily, you don’t need to worry too much about climate and temperature in EBC during your Everest Base Camp Tour, for there are tents, guest houses and even a hotel. (Click to find the best hotel in EBC) Living in these hotels is much more comfortable and warmer than camping outside by yourself at night. And you just need to take enough clothes for both during the day and the night. You can take some long sleeve shirts for the daytime below EBC and you may need to wear some down-filled clothes after you are at EBC even in summer.
