When is the best time to Eeverest three passes trek?

The weather is the most important aspect in completing the Eeverest three passes trek journey via three high passes.

Trekking is simple at certain seasons, particularly in the spring and autumn when the skies are bright and there is no rain. During Spring and Autumn, the charm of the bright azure sky allows you to experience the most breathtaking vistas without fighting the cold.

The trek becomes more difficult during the winter and rainy seasons, yet some trekkers enjoy the hardships.

Please Keep in mind that the weather in the Himalaya is very unpredictable, and temperature can fluctuate rapidly.

The coldest months are January and February (15°C to -15°C), with significant snowfall and freezing temperatures, mostly at night. We recommend that you do not hike during these months if you are sensitive to colds.

One of the greatest seasons for the Everest three passes trip is from March to April (18 °C to -12 °C). Views of the Himalayan mountains and glaciers are breathtaking. The Spring Season begins in March, when the temperature warms and the dormant plants and fauna awaken. It’s high trekking season.

May to June (25°C to -5°C) is also an ideal season for trekking before the rain. Rainfall occurs from the end of June to the middle of August. The walk is significantly more pleasurable during the spring and summer seasons.

From July through August (27°C to 5°C), considerable rains occurs at altitudes less than 3500 meters. The Everest three passes trek nepal trip becomes more challenging, but not impossible.

There is a possibility that flights from and to Lukla will be canceled during this period. However, trekkers can still be seen on the routes, and the rains affords excellent views of the cascade.
