Best Time to do the EBC trek
When we are on a set to travel, we all have a primary concern about the weather in our minds. it's super important to choose the right and the best time to travel and make a worthwhile holiday trip. The favorable month/ seasons of the year to do the Everest base camp trek is Autumn (Sep-Nov), and Spring (March-May)! It's undoubtedly the best season of the year and offers crystal clear Shining Himalayas views and its landscape, you could enjoy the trek more with a better view! The temperature is moderate, it's not very hot and cold. If you wish to avoid crowds this trip during winter (Dec., Jan., and Feb.) could also be the best option.
Accommodations on Trek
Accommodation in Kathmandu, you would be staying at the best hotel basically 3-4 stars, on a twin-sharing basis. But Accommodations in trekking is very basic where you will get the room with pillows, a warm and nice blanket, attach bathroom if it’s available with comfortable beds during the 13 days Everest base camp trek, if you are single you get the single bedroom as well with hygienic food, The Menu for food and accommodation have fixed by local management community.
Meals on the Trek
The Everest base camp trek route has numerous tea houses along the way and every single tea houses have a menu system with different ethnic cuisines foods as well as western meals on the Menu; you could pick up any kinds of the meal as you like to have during the trek, we would highly recommend the vegetable items instead of Meat because the meat in the mountain can be effected some time because it may not be used to it for the new travelers in this region. But some places provide you with typical Nepali meals which are different types of international meals. These are prepared by the local supplement. Every tourist Lodge has a well-trained cook, basically paying attention to clean, hygienic, fresh, and nice tasty foods. The variety of drinks and every lodge have safe drinking water or mineral bottles of water you could buy. If you buy a water purification tablet from Kathmandu you can take water from the tap and purify it yourself. This will be cheaper and help to control plastic pollution as well. The water you could buy everywhere in the Everest region at a reasonable price but the price would go high when you go to high altitude areas. We also recommend you buy boiled water instead of cold which keeps your body warm.
