Best time for Everest High passes Trek

The Best time for Everest High Passes Trek is during the pre-monsoon Spring and Post Monsoon Autumn season, when the weather us relatively stable and the clear sky. The recommended months will be suggesting here:
Spring (March to May):
This is one of the best times for trekking in the Everest region. In this time the weather is mild, and the skies are generally clear, offering stunning views of the High Himalayas. In this time, the rhododendrons and other wildflowers are in bloom, adding colour to the landscape. Daytime temperatures are comfortable for trekking, although night time at higher altitudes can be still cold.
You will experience more vibrant colours with blooming flowers, but there might still be some lingering snow on the high passes, making them slightly more challenging.
Autumn (September to November):
Another popular season for trekking in Nepal. The weather is much beautiful and stable. The skies are clear, providing excellent visibility of mountains. The temperatures are pleasant, making it comfortable for trekking during the day.
This is also the peak trekking season, so the trails and teahouses may be more crowded compared to other times of the year. Both spring and autumn offer great conditions for trekking the high passes. The trails are generally drier and clearer. The temperatures are more stable. However, the landscapes might not be colourful as in spring.
It is essential to avoid the Monsoon season June to August as well as the trails can be muddy, leech-infected, and prone to landslides. Winter December to February is also possible for trekking, but it is colder and the high passes might be closed due to heavy snowfall, making it more challenging and potentially dangerous.
Ultimately, the best time for the Everest high passes trek depends on your preferences, but spring March to May and autumn September to November are generally considered the optimal seasons for this adventure.

experienced, excellent skills of everything and trustable.

I went to a travel agency in Katmandu in November 2003 and asked for a guide to guiding me for my trip to Namche bazaar and Everest View point. The next morning Dhruba Bhatta came to my hotel and took me to the airport. The flight to Lukla was delayed 6 hours and he cheered me up and checked the weather. I had very tight schedule and was afraid that the weather would be bad for several days, and that I had to drop the trekking I came for. When we came to Lukla in the afternoon, when we start to walk steep hills, he explain about everything like mountain, culture, religious conviction and many more…and after 4 hours walk we reached the planned lodge. He was very agreeable with food and blankets what we want in mountain, because there was no heating. Due to him my trekking in Himalaya was successful. He was a best guide and good friend after that trip to Nepal and we have communicated regularly. If some people wants to visit Nepal please take Dhruba Bhatta as a guide, he is so experienced, excellent skills of everything and trustable person. He always organizes all aspects of the treks easily and professionally
