Difficulties rating of Everest Panorama Yoga Trek
A trekker or walker who is able to hike normally 5-6 hours per day carrying a lightweight backpack will be very fit enough to do this trekking. There are stone step up and down which are very uneven and due to some long descents your leg may feel shaky so we recommend using walking poles to feel safer. Normally, the maximum altitude of the trek is 5545m, so you should be more careful about your health and altitude related risk. To get rid of it please walks slowly and has more water and other drinks.
Safe drinking water on Everest Panorama Yoga Trek
Basically, we can get mineral water bottles in lower places but as we go higher cannot find it. In that case, we suggest you drink boiled water which may charge the small fee, found in tea houses and better to bring chlorine tablets to purify water. Due to no provision of plastic bottles better to use boiled rather than mineral water, helpful for the protection of the environment.
Recharging Batteries of Electronic Items on Everest Panorama Yoga Trek
Hydroelectricity or solar power sources are used to charge your electrical items like camera, batteries, iPod, phone etc. Tea houses or lodges may charge the small fee per hours for charging facilities. Better to buy adaptors before the trip since plugs are limited. In Nepal, 220-240 volt power is used and sockets fit round and flat plugs.
Extra Advice for Everest Panorama Yoga Trek
You may see some beautiful and sweet children and you may want to distribute balloons, chocolates, money, and pens as many trekkers have felt the same. But better not to do so because it encourages them to beg and ask every trekker.
In the trekking, keep your valuables safe. Do not leave anything anywhere. Ensure that you lock your door when you leave your room and do not hang anything outside at night.
Use a dustbin and do not throw anything into the fire. Carry garbage’s in the way where dustbin facilities are not available and conserve the environment.
Spending Money per Day
It mainly depends upon spending habits, normally you should allocate US$ 9-12 per meal in Kathmandu and Pokhara. On trekking, US$ 10-15 a day is good enough to buy drinks and chocolates.
Travel Insurance for Everest Panorama Yoga Trek

Ensure the insurance covers all the activities in the Himalayas. Trekking Planner can offer the appropriate medical response based on your policy and insurance.

All the guest houses offer hot showers, which can be in a bathroom or can be a bucket of hot water. Please note that at high altitude there may not be enough hot water for all the trekkers. Limit the use of hot water unless the water is solar heated or firewood for the ecological reason. Every lodge has some kind of washing facilities but you must carry a bar of soap. If the water froze then ask your guide to get a warm bowl of water.
