The best time to visit Mount Everest(8848.13 meters above sea level), the highest peak in the world, is from April to early June. But why?
Usually starting from the June to September is the rainy season in Everest area. Affected by the intense southeastern monsoon, tourists often encounter heavy rains, diffuse clouds and harsh snow and ice in this period.
And from October to the coming March is the windy season in Everest Region. Under the influence of the strong northwest cold currents, the temperature at Everest night would drop to -60°C. And the average temperature is around -40°C to -50°C with the maximum wind speed of 90m/s. As we know, in the area below the tropopause, the winds vary with the altitude. You can obviously feel it when trekking towards Mount Everest Advance Base Camp.
While windy season comes to an end and rainy season doesn’t set in, April to May must be the best season to visit Mount Everest Base Camp. Fewer snowstorms and rains would occur during this period of time. Under the stable weather and brilliant sunshine, the tourist is likelier to catch a clear panoramic view of Mount Everest.
