Tips for Everest Base Camp Trek in June

Always start early

Since June is the beginning of the monsoon season, it generally rains in the late afternoons. So, it is good to start the trek early and reach the destination before it rains and darkness invades the surrounding.

It is one of the off-season months you’ll hardly see hikers on the trails for miles. In case, if anything happens there might not be anyone else on the trails. The best things to avoid any potential problems is to start as early as possible (around 6 or 7 am).

Most of the trekkers try to finish by the time it gets dark as they don’t want to be last on the trails.

Keep yourself updated with the weather condition

While trekking in the monsoon month, it’s wise to keep yourself updated with the current weather conditions. So, keep an eye on the daily news can really help.

The local news serves as a warning. Beside this, it’ll also assist you in preparing for the trek as to what to take and wear.

Keep buffer days in hand

As you all might know that the weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable most of the time.

Thus, it is wise to set aside two-three extra days in hand. In case something unavoidable situations like landslides, floods, flight cancellation may occur.

Walk at your own pace

Trek slow and steady, also don’t take too much tea breaks along the way.

Since it’ll be raining, the trails will be muddy and slippery so walking slowly and steady is important.

Don’t miss catching up the sunrise views

In the monsoon time, normally you can see the best mountain views in the early morning.

So, try to get up before 5 AM to see the stunning snow-capped mountains. Generally, the views disappear at around 7 AM when the fog rises.

You have to hike Kala Patthar early in the morning. The view of the sunrise over the Everest Himalayas from Kala Patthar is breathtaking!

Beware of leeches and avoid them

This small creepy creature will be definitely the worst aspect of the trek. But you can adopt the strategy of using salt and turmeric around your shoe and ankle area.

You can also tuck your shirt into your pants and pants into your socks. This will prevent the leeches from entering into your unexposed body.

Don’t forget to get off-season discount

In the low season, you can easily negotiate the price of accommodation with the teahouse owners.

Also, in some tea houses, they’ll let you stay for free if you agree to order food from them.

Hire a professional trekking guide

The trekking trails through steep stones, streams, waterfalls, and forests are rough and may turn dangerous.

It is always better to listen more carefully to the guide as they know more than anyone on the trails. So, don’t ignore any warning issued by your tour guide, as it may cost you a lot.

Keep a mosquito repellent

Rainy season means a lot of mosquitoes. In monsoons, the stagnant water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes causing diseases like malaria.

Thus, to avoid getting sick, wear enough insect repellent to keep yourself covered.

What to wear during Everest Base Camp Trek in June?

We all know that rain during the June is mandatory and so you should be well-prepared. The rain can make your clothes stick to your skin, which ultimately reduces the fabric breathability.

Thus, you need to skip cotton when it comes to monsoon treks. Since the cotton holds water, gets very heavy with showers. So, I recommend you synthetic full sleeve t-shirt and synthetic full-length trekking pants. Cotton doesn’t dry easily while most synthetic fabrics dry with body heat.

Without any doubt, you must be ready for not-so-easy trail during June month. An only good grip on your shoes will be your savior against the slippery, muddy trails, wet vegetation and more. Waterproof hiking boots with good ventilation can help control blisters on the trek.

So, you need to take care of your feet while trekking in the monsoon. Being continuously wet due to rain, the skin of your feet might turn soft and can catch fungal infections.

If you wish you can pack thermal underwear and tights. Hard shell jackets, ponchos, waterproof gaiters, windcheaters, hats, raincoats, waterproof trousers should be kept.

  • Thermal tops/bottoms
