Weather

Weather in the mountains is difficult to predict.  Winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) is also good for trekking, only issue is cold. The weather is sunny and warm offering outstanding views but the nights are cold and can fall to freezing in higher elevations. Trekking in summer/monsoon (June, July) will be affected by rain but summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. The trekking routes are crowded during spring and autumn but during monsoon and winter the routes are not packed.

Experience Required

Anyone who is fit and healthy and have a habit of walking for couple of hours daily can choose for trekking But for mountain climbing one has to have an experience of climbing before

Packing  List

It is recommended that you carry a light 35-50L rucksack with your personal belongings that you may need handy such as camera, hat, glasses, gloves, sun creams, first-aid kit, toothpaste/brush, soap/ towel, and other personal items.

After climbing Ama Dablam I was planning for Everest Expedition since couple of years and I made it last year. I appreciate Eve Holidays for their professionalism and expertise that helped made me do it in ease.

I want to thank our Sherpa guide from Eve Holidays for making our visit to Nepal a successful one. Initially me and my friends were a bit worried about the hardles of ascent . But our guide was always there for us making sure everything is perfect.
