Risk of Altitude Sickness and Everest Panorama Trek Difficulty
The risk of altitude sickness in the Everest region is very high. However, there is less risk of altitude sickness during the Everest Panorama Trek. The highest altitude on this route is Tengboche Monastery (3867 m). People argue that places beyond 2500 m or 3000 m are prone to altitude sickness. It is correct but the itinerary of the trekking is prepared in such a way that the risk of altitude sickness is very less. Even if the risk is less, trekkers have to get travel insurance. In case of emergencies, trekkers have to be evacuated by using a helicopter which is the only means of transportation besides walking in the area.
