Since you and your body might have never experienced such a high altitude environment till now, you have to give your body the chance to adapt with the new environment. So, we spend this day acclimatizing to the higher elevation as altitude sickness can sometimes be quite serious and dangerous. The day will not be spent just lying around (unless you want to), but we will hike to Everest Viewpoint for a magnificent view of Mt. Everest. From here, you will see the spectacular peaks of Everest, Ama Dablam, Nuptse and many more. It is only a two hour hike to Everest Viewpoint and we will spend a few hours there enjoying the view as well as having lunch. We will return to Namche Bazaar where you can spend the afternoon exploring this delightful village. There is a lot to see here. We will spend the night in our local guest house.
