There are two main trekking seasons Sep. to Dec. and Feb 15 to April is the best because by that time you can easily explore beautiful mountain every day because of clear weather each day in Nepal, However you can make your trip all year .around Nepal.

When you arrive in Kathmandu you can have breakfast at your hotel and when you are in trekking you will get breakfast, lunch and dinner from the hotel menu each settlements so as a guide since 13 years I suggest you to have vegetable foods most during your trek in the mountain and also less friend food will helps you a lot to be strong to walk each day.
4. Physical Condition & Experience Requirements:
Mount Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 4-7 hours a day with a light rucksack. In some days we might even need to walk for 7 to 8 hours. Walking in higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness, have a positive attitude and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior to the trip is good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Himalayan Glacier before booking the trek. We also recommend that you consult your doctor(s) before the trip
5. What is altitude sickness?
Mountain high altitude sickness occurs when you cannot get enough oxygen while you are in high region over 3000 meters basically. The main symptoms of mountain sickness are headache, lack of sleep, you don’t really feel hungry, nausea, dizziness, if you are in critical situation you might get some blood bleeding from your nose and your cough will be really dry.
When some people who are not used to high altitude and if he/she go fast from low altitude, in that case you might get altitude sickness easily because your body can’t exit rapidly that high so quick. So for altitude sickness can be the descending a main medicine and warm drinking water helps you a lot as well as you need to keep your warm body and drink as much as possible that helps a lot.
