I was quite fresh in the morning at Namche bazaar. It was again a bright sunny day, took a good rest as I slept earlier but Gaurav was not well. What happened basically when we were coming from Phakding to Namche bazaar, he was quite fast and drained all his energies, so much so that he even did not took his dinner previous night. So I thought leaving him at hotel and giving him time to rest, he will be alright and I left him to see Everest view point.
I must admit the stairs took my breath away when I passing Namche bazaar. There are 100s of stairs which first one need to climb to get on the right path for everest view point.
It was our day 3 and basically not progessing anywhere as it was our acclimitization day. Why to acclimitize yourself. In my experience, where-ever one go to the altitude of 3000 meters above sea level, it is always good to have plenty of rest, stay at such place atleast for a day and then move ahead to more heights. It makes body to adjust itself, to adapt for the oxygen in air. (Effective oxygen in air at Namche is roughly 13.7% only)
