Likewise, the facilities along the Everest view trail are also fantastic. You will get most of the services, including hot showers and WiFi.

You will spend an acclimatization night in Namche Bazaar. During the trek, if you see symptoms like headache, problems in breathing, vomiting, insomnia, nausea, etc, inform your guide. He will provide you with first aid and monitor your health further. Keep yourself hydrated and maintain your pace during trekking.

Best time to do the Everest view trek

The Everest view trek's best time is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons. You will get the best trail conditions and weather for trekking to Namche Bazaar and Tengboche village. The trail thrives with vegetation and wildflowers in these two seasons, which makes the scenery outstanding.

The stable weather allows for on-time Lukla flights and no cancellations. The sky stays clear throughout the day, so you will not miss any views. The upper part of the trail is a bit cold in the evenings and mornings. Otherwise, the climate remains mild. You will get long daylight hours to enjoy the trek and bustling routes with fantastic environments.

Everest view trek in winter (December to February)

Because the Everest view trek is not a very high-altitude trek, you can also do it in the winter season. However, the weather is not stable all the time, and the views may get hindered sometimes because of fog. Still, you will witness the most tranquil and unseen perspective of the Everest region in winter.

The trail is not crowded, and because of that, the price of lodges and meals are down as well. If you love solitude, you should do the Everest view trek in winter. The climate is very cold, so you have to pack all the thermal clothes, jackets, and gloves. Likewise, a sleeping bag is required.

Everest view trek in summer/monsoon (June to August)

June to August is the hottest month of the year and also the monsoon season. The Lukla flights are most disturbed in these months, and the trail condition is also poor. We usually recommend not trekking in the summer/monsoon times, but if you love rain and rich foliage and are fine with muddy trails and bugs, you will love trekking.

Accommodation and Meals during the trek

The accommodation during the Everest view trek is the lodge. Lodges offer simple but cozy lodging services along the trail. The rooms are shared between two trekkers, and the washroom is not attached. If you need a single room during the Everest view trek, you have to pay extra money.

Services like charging, WiFi, hot showers, etc, require a few bucks every time you use them. So, carry some Nepali ahs with you for these personal expenses. You should also pack all the toiletries, including toilet paper, for the trek. You will find Western-style toilets in many lodges.

Note: You can upgrade the accommodation to a luxury lodge at an additional cost.

You get three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) during the Everest view trekking. All the meals will be given as per the menu of the lodges, which is fantastic along the Everest view trail. Dal bhat and thukpa are the best trekkers food. You can choose between veg and non-veg options.

Apart from those, the menu has a variety of dishes from pasta, burgers, pizza, steak, and sandwiches to momo, noodles, thenduk, chapati, rice and curry, stew, etc. You should carry your favorite snacks for the trek. Boiled water is available in all the lodges. It is safe to drink.

Travel insurance for Everest view trek

It is recommended for the Everest view trek with travel insurance that covers emergency air evacuation. Even though it is a low-altitude trek with less risk of altitude sickness, you can never predict anything while traveling in the Himalayas. So, it is best to have a backup in case you come across an unseen event that demands immediate evacuation.
