You can make the trip to Everest at any time of the year. However, the time when the hike is the easiest is during monsoon, Spring, and Autumn. The time between March and May and the time between September and November are the best time to visit Everest. And we recommend you to read Everest guide book or blog.
Getting Fit for the Trek
Whatever kind of trek you are attempting, it’s not a touristy trek when it comes to Everest trip. You will be walking at least 4-7 hours per day. Moreover, you will mostly be at an altitude of over 5000 meters.
So, the Everest guide recommends you exercise at least once a week before the trip. You should do acrobats like swimming, running, and jumping rope as you would want your body to take oxygen faster as you will be in higher altitude environments and the oxygen is thinner above.
