With a peak that reaches 29,035 feet, Mount Everest is known as the world’s highest mountain.

This famous mountain has been visited by trekkers each year while fighting against very cold conditions, inclement weather and other environmental factors which make it difficult to reach. However, foreign trekkers, climbers, and mountaineers still visit this famous natural wonder.


The coldest month of the year is in January where the temperature can go down to -76°F (-60°C) while July is considered to be the warmest even though the temperature goes down to -2°F (-19° C). When bad weather arises, trekkers are stranded in the foothills to wait for a better time to proceed.

Guides and porters can guide you as you venture the peak of this famous mountain. During the months of October to April, it is difficult for climbers and travelers to visit the mountain due to the weather condition.

With this, Mount Everest is open for expeditions the whole year but the best time to visit is during the months of April to June.
