Additional Info

Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek difficulty 

There is not much difference between the usual EBC Trek and Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek. The route is the same, the challenges are the same, only the daily yoga and meditation sessions make the challenges a little more bearable.

The difficulty level of Everest Base Camp Yoga Trekking is moderate. Still, the daily 5 to 6 hours of walk on steep, rocky, and rugged paths can get pretty tough and exhausting for beginner trekkers. Especially if you cannot maintain consistent stamina. There are many ascents and descents throughout the trek, and you will be walking through dense forests and glacier moraine. 

The remoteness of the region and the elevation adds up to the trek challenge. You have to prepare yourself mentally to live in limited facilities, and life suddenly gets remarkably simple with no modern conveniences. 

And the ugliest, you have to be aware of altitude sickness all the time. Altitude sickness, common disease travelers have to face during high-altitude ventures. You can learn more about it here.

Tips to make the journey smooth

  • The Himalayas can be overwhelming with all its remoteness, confined facilities, and disconnection from the world. Take your time and escape in its welcoming hands. You do not need to rush. Walk attentively and follow the guidelines of the team leader. 

  • Make sure to pack clothes and gear properly. Double-check everything.

  • Do not forget to pack extra batteries or a solar charger to charge your devices during the trek. It will be cheap and convenient. 

  • No false hopes, the internet connection will be unstable, and it will only get worse with an increase in altitude (whether you use WiFi or cellular data).

  • You can save good money and the environment by carrying a reusable water bottler and water purification tablet (optional).

  • There's no ATM service available above Namche Bazar, and you will need extra cash to buy services or snacks. So, withdraw enough cash to last the trek.

  • Do drink plenty of water. Don't consume alcoholic drinks or smoke. It will keep you away from altitude sickness. 

  • Don't forget to say thank you to the crew member at the end of the trip. The best way to do this is by tipping them, and it's completely your choice.
