It is important to understand the weather before planning trekking in the Everest region - there are mainly two best seasons for trekking in the Everest region: pre-monsoon (February, March, April, May) and post-monsoon (September, October, November, December). Whatever, it is possible to do some treks in the Everest region at any time of the year.
There are many starting points for Everest trekking but Lukla is more common for making the short journey to Mount Everest. If the weather is nice, there are regular flights operating between Kathmandu and Lukla, but you need to book flight tickets in advance to secure seats. It is about 35 minute’s flight journey from Kathmandu airport. But if you decide to take a long journey and start the trek from land with less attitude then Jari Bazaar or Salleri would be a good option. Both places are connected by motor road from Kathmandu, but it takes a long drive. However, if you are hesitant to use overland transport but still want to start the trek from low land, it is better to start the trek from Phaplu. Kathmandu to Phaplu flight also leaves in the morning. Like a Lukla, there is no regular flight, only 2 times in a week (Normally Monday and Wednesday).
