Autumn (Sept to November) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Everest Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. Trekking in Summer or Monsoon(June, July, August) will be affected by rain but Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
The Trekking Group
For the Everest adventure trek, there will be one leader, assistant leader (4 trekkers:1 assistant guide) and Sherpa porters for luggage carrying (2 trekkers:1 porter). This arrangement ensures that any body in the group is sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. Himalayan Glaciers can run the Everest Base Camp trek for group of any size. But generally it will be better to have a maximum of twelve people, as we have found this to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you would like to make a group booking for more than twelve people together, we can arrange this too.
