Difficulties rating of Everest View Trekking
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 is 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, 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 view 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 protection of the environment.
Recharging Batteries of Electronic Items on Everest View 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 View 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 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 View Trek
You should be sufficiently protected and need to have travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, lost items, liabilities, injuries and medical treatment. Ensure the insurance covers all the activities in the Himalayas. Trekking Planner can offer the appropriate medical response based on your policy and insurance.
Washing and Toilet facilities for Everest View Trek
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 the warm bowl of water.
A toilet is mainly Asian squat style. Basically, the toilet is outside your room and varies in how clean they are. You should not through toilet paper in the toilet hole rather you should use the rubbish bin that is kept inside the toilet.
On Everest view trekking route local people have built tea houses lodge with food and beverage facilities. A simple room usually has two narrow beds. While staying in the tea houses you will see the charming local people with their good hospitality services.

Tea houses do not have money exchange facilities. Trekking Planner recommend you to exchange cash in Kathmandu. At the lower altitudes there are electricity facilities whereas as we go higher tea houses become more basic.

- Should I have to bring iodine tablets for purifying the water?
- You have to bring iodine tablet with you. Chlorine tablets are widely available. The most effective and commonly used version of chlorine is chlorine dioxide, which is tasteless and odorless. Tablets can be bought cheaply and usually 1 tablet is sufficient to purify 1 liter of water. Neutralizing tablets can also be bought to get rid of the smell and taste of chlorine or iodine. This will need to be done for water obtained using hand pumps or streams in the trek.
- What are the effects of going so high?
- Altitude produces physical changes in the body. Higher you go, more pronounced those changes. If after gaining a lot of elevation in a hurry, you experience dizziness, nausea, headaches, and dehydration, you are probably suffering from altitude sickness. In rare cases this may worsen, so a close watch is kept on all trekkers by the Group Leader who is trained to recognize Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). If trekkers show any signs of AMS they will be evacuated to a lower, safe altitude immediately. To minimize effects of altitude you ascend slowly which allows safe acclimatization.

- It depends on the nature of your illness. If you suddenly feel dizzy or weak, you have to sit or lie down. If you still feel sick, keep a warm and quiet until you can get medical help.

So, helicopter rescue insurance is necessary for every trekker before you come to trek in this trek.
- Would you recommend taking a Down Jacket?
- The weather is changeable in the Himalaya so you can expect to experience four seasons in one day. Make sure you have plenty of warm layers which you can shed or add as required. While even in winter it can be as warm as 19C during the day, the higher the altitude, the colder the temperature and when high up the temperature drops significantly at night to around -10C in October/November, and to around -20C from December to February.
