Late September to end-November offers the best weather in the Khumbu, but is also the most crowded time to be trekking. Blue skies, sunny days and chilly night-time temperatures are the norm. The mercury starts to dip towards the end of Autumn and the crowds start to thin out before the lodges and teahouses close for the winter.
March to mid-May brings dry & warm weather after the Himalayan winter and the benefits of trekking in this season are multi-fold: fewer crowds and gorgeous rhododendron blooms. There is pollen in the air though, which make for less clear views than in autumn.
The months of December to February offer uncluttered trails, crystal-clear air, sunny days and often empty lodges and teahouses. This is a lesser-known but brilliant season to hike in. Temperatures drop well below freezing at night, but there is very rarely snow underfoot. Solitude and the Himalayas blanketed by fresh winter snowfall are the reward.
