Autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. But the nights are cold and can fall to freezing level in higher elevations. Winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) is also good for Everest Base Camp Trek, only issue is cold (obviously). Trekking in Summer or 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 and visitors could enjoy rather best of nature.
