WHEN TO TREK
Although trekking in the Khumbu is possible all year, flights are regularly canceled in the winter and during the monsoon due to poor visibility at the Lukla airfield. Autumn has the nicest weather since the skies are clear and the temperatures at higher elevations are more acceptable. However, competition for aircraft seats and lodge bed space can be fierce.
note.Before attempting to cross any high passes, check the weather conditions locally or with your guide/porter. (mostly in the winter)
