Winter season (December, January, February)

The winter season is very good for mountain scenery and to play the snow. However, the frozen season is not that nice because everything will be frozen.

Special Note.

This trek can do by everyone who is physically and mentally strong. However, better to have a previously walking experience in the Himalayas.

If something is wrong need to rescue by Helicopter and that costs a huge amount. And weather conditions of the mountain always fluctuate. Therefore flying in and out from Lukla is always not sure. You may need to take an extra option which may be an unexpected cost for you.
