Spring and autumn are the best trekking seasons to the Everest base camp trek. Spring is the time of flowers blooming and the best views due to the clear weather.

Autumn is the festival season in Nepal. Along with the EBC Trekking in Nepal, you can also explore the delighting festivals as Teej, Dashain and Tihar. The weather often remains cool with the sunny days, warm days and little bit cold nights.

High Altitude Sickness

High Altitude Sickness is also known as Acute Mountain Sickness. When you walk in the high altitude level, the symptoms of altitude sickness can appear. It is not a great problem at the beginning, but underestimating it, can be severe problem. Generally, altitude sickness may appear above 2700 meters. Dizziness, vomiting, oversleepy, insomnia and others are the common symptoms. If you feel it, you should try some way outs that are easy. You should stop ascending, better to descend. Drink a lot of water, drink hot garlic soups and stay warmed.
