The Scenery

When you embark on the Everest Lower Trek, you are rewarded with some of the most breathtaking views in the world. Along the trek, you will pass through lush forests and terraced farmland, cross rivers on suspension bridges, and explore quaint villages.

For these reasons and many more, it's easy to see why this 16-day journey is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. The best time to visit Everest Base Camp and take on the Everest Lower Trek is between October and November. During this period, the skies are generally clear, providing perfect conditions for taking in the breathtaking mountain scenery. The weather tends to be milder as well, making this a great time of year for taking part in strenuous activities such as trekking. Additionally, October is considered to be the best month to spot endangered wildlife species in Sagarmatha National Park, such as musk deer and red pandas.

Furthermore, the busy tourist season ends around mid-October; meaning you won't have to worry about crowded trails and lodges. All these factors come together to create the ideal time to undertake the Everest Lower Trek; providing the perfect combination of picturesque landscapes, pleasant weather conditions and abundant wildlife spotting opportunities.

The Accommodation on Everest Lower Trek

You will be provided with comfortable lodgings that suit the environment and climate of the region. In the lowlands, you will stay in lodges which provide a cosy atmosphere with plenty of facilities. As you progress higher into the hills, tea houses become the norm. These are locally-run establishments where basic but comfortable facilities are provided, such as private rooms and clean bathrooms. 

Some tea houses even offer hot showers, wifi, and a warm and friendly atmosphere – perfect for relaxing after a long day’s hike! As always, all of these facilities are subject to availability and local conditions, so please keep an open mind. 

It is worth noting that whilst these lodgings are comfortable, they are not luxurious. Many tea houses do not have electricity or running water and it is important to remember this before setting off on your journey.
