Best Time to Travel
Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and spring (March to May) are the best time for Trekking. The weather is delightful and pleasant during autumn. The mountain views are astonishing.
The hills are wrapped with beautiful flowering rhododendron during spring. Majority of the trekkers find Spring best time for Namche Trekking since they love to see flowering rhododendron in Sagarmatha National Park.
Winter( Dec-Feb) will be very harsh due to cold and cloudy weather which hide the mountain peaks.
Summer will be too hot for some trekkers. Heavy rainfall occurs and disturbs the transportation and even walk in the mountain.

Threats and Safety
We do not really face such terrible threats during Namche trekking. There is no any slippery and steep trail and challenging passes in Namche Trek. Sometimes, steep uphill while getting to Namche Bazar from the suspension bridge may be challenging to the beginners.
