Best Seasons for Everest Base Camp Trekking:

Nearly all seasons of the year can trek. March to May springtime will be the best time when wild-flowers, especially the rhododendron (Nepal national flower) in full bloom. Which make our walk more attractive with beautiful, bright morning till afternoon, with some chances of rains sometimes.

October to December another best months around Autumn/Fall and pre-winter, when most of the days are clear for views and walks but can be much colder and freezing as altitude gains with chances of snow sometimes.

Monsoon months from mid-June to mid-September wet rainy seasons were less number of trekkers venture, Along the way, some lodge in mid monsoon and mid-winter lodge will closed. Sometimes due to harsh and humid climate which makes the walking trails much harder and slippery, but much greener hills with lush vegetation in wet seasons, so the choice as per your holidays for Nepal and Everest Base Camp Trekking.

We had an Everest base camp trek with Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks and it was awesome. The trekking company provide the proper information about trek very quickly and properly. The organization trip is exactly perfect what we wanted and every detail was perfect. Our trekking staff are very helpful and kind during the trip. The trekking guide was very much experience and professional Mr Bikash provide the best information and hospitality service along the trek. He was very much caring and humorous and he always likes to make a journey more comedy and fun. Yet our porter is also caring and supportive, they are always humble to our request.

My friend and I just came back from the awesome 18 days trek with Adventure Alpine Gorkha treks & Expedition (AAGT). Mr. Thakur was a quick response to our email and details information about our trip. He briefly explains our trip details during arrival in Kathmandu.
Our guide Bikash is the best, professional, experienced, and well caring during Nepal s travel. He always humbles our request and serves us. The team was super fantastic and funny for the voyage. Guide and porter taught some Nepali words for greeting. We had a great chance to learned Nepali culture and lifestyle through the guide experience and knowledge.
The company was a super-fast pickup from the airport to the end of our staying in Nepal. They will provide farewell dinner in a local Nepali restaurant. So it was a fantastic movement with us. Without any doubts, I had like to recommend AAGT trekking and tour company in Nepal.

Everest base camp trek is a dream destination in Nepal, with the views of world highest Mt Everest and the stunning Himalayan range. The trek made me overjoyed and forgot all the things of a challenging and challenging part of the trek.
The trek is a popular trekking destination to get the views of the world's highest Mt Everest. On this trip, you will experience the Sherpa culture and lifestyle with the Buddhist religion. Also, along the trekking trail, you will pass through the different Buddhist monastery, where you can experience the traditional beauty of the Sherpa culture. Our guide Ramhari provides all the information about the trekking region in Nepal.
My trek 15 days Everest base camp was quite challenging. But I felt safe with Ramhari because he was organized everything properly and planned a trip before leaving the trek. He was sincere to take care of us all the time. He was a professional and experienced trekking guide in Nepal. Porters are also crying our heavy load with smiling.
Trip packages from Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks are highly recommended as they are doing best in what they are doing. Thanks for the best service and an exciting trip to Nepal! Cheers!

Excellent Holiday: Everest Base Camp Trek
I had great experience from starting to the end of our program with Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks. We contacted AAGT on online and they were very quick Response our email. They also provide important information for the trip, it will be very helpful to preparation our trek. From the arrival they meet us at airport and took us to the hotel which was very comfortable and friendly manner. They organized Kathmandu flight, due to the bad weather we could not fly over the Lukla first attempt (unfavorable condition). We try next day, it was scenic flight and start our mazing journey to the world highest Mount Everest. Our guide Ram was knowledgeable, friendly and funny, he always take care us and provide nice accommodation and healthy meal. Overall trek was quit hard but AAGT makes much more comfortable and amazing to us. I would not hesitated to recommend AAGT for anyone, who are looking best trekking and Tour Company in Nepal.

Breathtaking Everest base camp trek
We had a great moment with Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks team. We are four people coming together for the Everest base camp trek last of April. From the support of our guide Ram, we had great fun and make our holiday memorable. He is a beautiful soul and honest person. Always take care us and provide wonderful accommodation and food. He told every day our program and suggest some idea about the high altitude problem and prevention. It will be very helpful tips for the entire trip and we successfully accomplish our amazing trekking to the world highest Mount Everest.
I don’t have any words to praise them for the beautiful Nepal tour. Definitely I will come next time with AAGT best trekking agency in Nepal!!!

I have traveled twice to Nepal for trekking expeditions with Adventure Alpine Treks. Thakur is an easy guy to work with and focuses on making sure that his clients are well taken care of - from meeting you at the airport to arranging guides around Kathmandu to running interference on cancelled flights to Lukla or securing a helicopter at the last minute. He has great connections throughout Nepal.
My first trek in 2013 with a child hood friend and fellow Boy Scout was on my ‘bucket list’ for many years. I researched trekking companies serving the Everest region of the Himalayas on-line and focused on both US and Nepal based companies. I came across Thakur’s company in my research and reached out for references. I ended up speaking with a Brit, an Aussie plus trekkers from the US and Spain. All gave Thakur and his team great reviews.
Our 21 day trek in 2013 took us to Everest base camp with summiting on Kalapatar and then on to Gokyo Valley and Renjo-La. Thakur’s lead guide, Tilak, was fantastic! He watched us as we trekked and helped us to maintain a steady but very doable pace.
I returned in 2016, again using Alpine Adventure Treks and with Tilac as our guide. A college buddy and I spent 18 days in the Manaslu region with a side trip to the Tsum Valley and then on to Larke-La at 5100m. Another absolutely beautiful trip!
Both of these treks involved meals and lodging in tea houses along the way. Tilac always sent the porters ahead to secure the best locations. We generally observed that Tilac is deeply seasoned and highly regarded by the other guides throughout the Himalayas where we trekked. Tell Thakur you want Tilac! He will take good care of you.

Who can trek Everest base camp?

However, Sound Health and physical fitness with a minimum of 10 years and a maximum of 70 years of age on an average are highly advisable. However, there is no official Everest Base camp age limit.

People who follow the standard route itinerary acclimatize well and monitor their symptoms like -nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and headache- will not suffer from any altitude sickness. EBC trek does not require any technical expertise or mountaineering skills. However, we recommend a few 4 to 6 hours trek at home to get used to walking longer hours with a light pack.
