/ Himalayan Climate
Weather might have changed a bit, but not that much. Monsoon is pretty much still the same time of year.
Unless you're planning a ski/sled journey, the only place that will be OK in March-Apri is Nepal. Partly because of the weather, partly because of the infrastructure of lodges/trails/transport for the main trekking areas.
March can be colder than January, according to some Sherpas, but there is a lot of annual variability. Some winters it doesn't snow much, or snows late. Sometimes the ground is bare in March, sometimes high passes are blocked through April. Some passes groups will force a track through (Thorung La), some stay blocked until they melt.
The plan is to trek to EBC via Kongma La,Cho La and Renjo La. Route is via Namche Bazar, East, circular to EBC. Max elevation 5535m. Are the passes mentioned likely to be blocked with snow?
