Even September to mid-October will rain some time then it can be difficult to fly to Lukla but from mid-October to late December the weather will be perfect for the flight although November and December will be quite cold. You need to have warm clothes for this time. The view of nature is wonderful during this time. And March to May is better for those people who scare to trek with too cold. It will be warmer than autumn but it can snow sometime this time. The land will be warm so the snow will melt within a few hours so it won't be difficult but the trail somewhere could be the muddy cause of melting snow. This is the main season to climb Everest so you will see lots of colourful tents at the base camp. Everest base camp looks like a little city of the mountain during this time. The view of the mountain is very pretty too. When many trekkers do Everest base camp trek, there will be less chance to get the flight ticket to Lukla by earlier flights.

How I started writing

I was born in the countryside and finished my high school from there. After my high school, I came in Kathmandu and started to work as a trekking porter then I improved my English and started to work as a trekking guide at the same time I was a university student. While I was working as a tour leader, I visited all the Himalayan base camps in Nepal and collected lots of information about these areas. So my work inspired me to write and provide information about travelling Nepal to the visitors.
