Everest Panorama trek difficulty

You should walk for 6-8 hours daily at decent acclimatization on a typical day. The road is rugged and filled with hard rocks. If you are physically and mentally prepared and healthy, the Everest Panorama Trek is doable, and will not be difficult to complete without any harm or injuries. Since you will not trek to the higher altitudes so there is no possibility of altitude sickness. 

Best Time for Trek 

Weather is an important factor in determining your experience of the trek. You must choose the right season and weather conditions to experience the best. In Nepal, Spring(March-May) and Autumn(September-November) are considered the best seasons for tourism. Traveling to Everest Panorama Trek in these seasons will be fruitful for your travel experience. 

Spring Season

The spring season is one of the best seasons to trek to Everest Panorama trek. The weather starts to warm up with a clear view of the panoramic Himalayas. The temperature can go up to 18 degrees Celsius and can be as low as 0 to negative degrees at worst. The greenery starts to bloom after the gloomy winter and provides aesthetic views. 

Autumn season

Autumn is another best season to trek to the Everest Panorama Trekking region. As this is the festive season in Nepal, the number of travelers increases this season as there will be holidays for the Nepalese. Domestic tourists can also be seen on the route. The major festival Mani Rimdu falls in this season, so you will get the opportunity to be a part of the festival and feast with the locals. There will be clear weather and the perfect temperature for sightseeing and trekking, so this is considered the best season to trek in the region. 

Travel tips for Everest Panorama Trek 

  • There won’t be any ATM above Namche Bazar, so make sure you have enough hard cash to spend for the rest of your trekking except for the inclusions in your package.
