As the elevation rises Amadablam Base Camp Trekking in Nepal offers the magnificent views of snow-capped mountains of Everest Trekking Region which includes Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Amadablam itself and other mountains.
Our fantastic Amadablam Trekking also offers to visit Tengboche Monastery- the largest Buddhist Monastery of Everest Trekking region.
As Trekking in Everest Region is a seasonal adventure tour and trek activities, we’ve two best seasons for this Everest Trek and they are as follows:
Spring(March, April, May): The season in which rhododendron blooms with its decent color and beauty and due to which colorful hills are spotted throughout the journey wherever possible. One also gets an opportunity to collect the clear and picturesque view of the majestic Mount Everest, Mount Amadablam and their neighbors.
Autumn(September, October, November): The perfect season to trek in which dry air is dispersed all over the nation and due to which the sky seems to be crystal clear. The trekking trails are also neither too wet nor too slippery. One can enjoy the breathtaking transparent views of the snowcapped Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse and so on.
As it is not easy as compared to Everest Sunrise Trek, it is not recommended in the winter season(December, January, February) but however, it’s possible with ample clothes during this season. And due to wet and slippery trail, the Amadablam Base Camp Trek is absolutely not possible during rainy season(June, July, August) as well.
