A typical wake up time is around 6 am. Evening is cooler and left nothing more especial also. So better go to bed early after dinner. And maintain your fix time.
3. Altitude - a factor of change
Altitude, this is the big changing factor of Everest trekking. About 500m to 700m elevation changes daily. So, always care your health and maintain fitness.

The most important thing is be free, have fun and avoid stress.
4. Price goes up with every ascending step
Higher elevation has difficult physical and access means. So, the higher you get, the higher the prices of the goods and services. In inclusive tour package, three meals, accommodation and other basic requirements are included but some items such as bottled water, soft and hard drinks, snacks, laundry and other interest of personal nature should be afforded by yourself. So, don't forget to keep some extra money as per your interest level.
5. Food? No worry!

The professional and hospitable locals not only serve foods but also reflect their tradition, culture and food habit. So, be sure about every vegetable or non-vegetable foods, but the fact is every variety of dishes that you demand might not be possible.
6. Better carry sleeping bag even in a lodge trek
Teahouse or lodge provides blankets or sleeping bags in your rooms. But, in some cases that might not warm enough for everybody. Sometime the climate becomes cooler drastically and so you may need more cloths. Thus it's better to have a sleeping bag with you. (sleeping bag can be rented in Kathmandu)
7. Don't be afraid with height
Many people think, if we go high, we will get altitude sickness. They are afraid with altitude and mentally takes it as a tough job. This is what the main cause of having problem at Himalayas. All Everest trekking routes are in acceptable height and thus, there is nothing to afraid. Take it as a fun and accept the challenge.
