Is Everest Base Camp quite cold?

While the first few days of the trek in the low Himalayan forest are comfortable and only slightly cool, the second part of the journey brings you straight into the alpine plateau's cooler and frequently frigid elevations. The average temperature of Base Camp can range from 1 to -15 degrees. The morning hike may also be a slog in freezing winds, so you'll want to be as comfortable as possible.
