It is also the place for acclimatizing for the trekkers to go further towards base camp.

Day 04Acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar. The acclimatization process takes place in Namchebazar by taking short day hiking or relaxing by roaming around in the Namche itself. According to health experts, the trekkers should always move while relaxing and acclimatizing to the altitude.

The trail towards Tyangbouche is less smooth but it contemplates the trekkers with the majestic views of Mount Everest up close along with Mount Ama Dablam.

We will have the lunch on the way.

Day 13 Hiking to Gokyo RI (5483m) and trek to Dole (4200m) Gokyo Ri is the highlight of this trip. Early morning, we hike as much as the Gokyo Ri (Gokyo top). hiking to Gokyo Ri is glaringly strenuous as it's miles steep up and takes approximately three to four hours to attain the pinnacle. but even from the trial surroundings of Gokyo village on the brink of 0.33 lake neglected by Cholatse and the broad Ngozumpa Glacier are thoughts blowing. We sense like we're surrounded by means of panoramic mountains like Kusum Kanguru, Thamserku, k 43, Kangtega, Taboche, Cholatse, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Everest, Changtse, and Pumori. Sight of sunrays kissing the Everest that towers over all surrounding peaks is not like from Kalapattar (from Kalapattar Nuptse appears taller).
