How difficult is Everest trekking?
Everest region trekking is considered one of the difficult trail in the globe. The more numbers of ascending and descending, sloppy trails, and rocky hills increase the difficulty level of the trek. Furthermore, the difficulty level increases in poor weather and climatic condition. Snowfall around the trail creates difficulties during the Everest Base Camp trek.
The crowd on the trail, especially on the peak season, creates a problem for accommodation. So, make sure to book the tea houses earlier. After leaving, Namche Bazaar, the cold environment hits you and you may suffer from common cold, altitude sickness. So, the acclimatization days are kept in the Everest Base Camp Trek.
