                          Best Seasons for Everest Panorama Trekking:

                          Everest Panorama Trekking for nearly all months of the year; however best time is from March to May in spring season and with mid-September till December months during autumn and pre-winter season.

                          March to May lovely with enough day lights and sunshine when high hills with forest of tall trees and bush of rhododendron will be in full bloom with other wild-flowers, make this trek more interesting and special.

                          Most days are clear from morning till late afternoon, can get cloudy sometimes with chance of snows around higher elevation cold in the morning and night time (not adding extra wind-chill factors).

                          Mid-September to December during autumn / fall season where most days are crystal clear from morning till mid-afternoon but with short day lights, much colder and freezing temperatures in the morning and night as well in shades, away from sun lights (not adding extra wind-chill factors).

                          Some people might be interested to trek during low season of wet monsoon times most days are cloudy that obstructs views of peaks, encountering less and few numbers of trekkers during rainy season of Mid June till Mid-September, but very lush and greens with enough moistures that supports with more oxygen to help acclimatization, days are longer with sunlight due to summer and monsoon season around Nepal and other Himalayan destinations much warmer than other seasons of spring and autumn.

                          Local Culture and Religion:

                          Sherpa are the natives of Everest and other higher Himalayan region, the word Sherpa comes from Tibetan language as East for Sher and Pa means people, where Sherpa migrated around high Himalaya of Nepal around Mid-East and Far Eastern Himalaya range from Eastern parts of Tibet.

                          Way back more than 400 years of history, the Sherpa normally are farmers and livestock herding like cows and yaks interwoven with strong Buddhism religion and fascinating cultures that you can witness walking around villages.

                          In every Sherpa villages one can find a monastery, some are older of more than 500 years like the monastery of Thame and Pangboche villages, where’s the famous monastery of Thyangboche was much older which was destroyed by huge fire in 1991 and been built to its original shapes.

                          As you walk from village to another where you will come across many prayer walls and religious monuments of Stupas (dome), with rows of spinning prayer wheels.

                          Sherpa men-folks were earlier pioneers as mountain and trekking guides and still held the post till present.

                          Accommodation in Manthali Town:

                          Hotels and local lodge are not up to the standard of tourist class, very basic and simple suitable for local travelers only, where trekkers for flight to Lukla sometimes has to bear with us, if staying overnight at Manthali for flight to Lukla or on the way back to Kathmandu.

                          The other options will be driving early morning by 2 a.m. in the dark to reach on time for flight departure for Lukla.

                          Flying back from Lukla time permitting (during morning and mid-day) can travel back to Kathmandu on time.

                          Please bear with us for above sudden change of notice flight to Lukla instead from Kathmandu domestic airport will be from Manthali airport, Ramechap which will continue till near future.

                          Important to know for all trekkers flying in and out Lukla requires minimum of two days extra from the standard itinerary provided, to cope with present situation regarding change of airport for flight to Lukla or towards other mountain destinations.

                          Climate and Weather:

                          Himalayan climate can be unpredictable sometimes even in good best seasons, where April and May to first week of June will be the best time during spring times, when days are longer with enough sunlight hours.

                          Morning and night time as well in shade can be cold and much freezing temperatures around higher areas above 3,000 m.

                          Other months from September to November another great times for treks around Kanchenjunga base camp and other areas of Himalaya, when days are clear for views and to summit the top of the peak, although much colder months of autumn season with extreme cold during morning and night time, where sunlight is much shorter.
