Day 2- Namche and Acclimatization Day

We planned a resting day in Namche to help with our acclimatization. I have read the rule of ascending no more than 1000 feet a day in order to acclimatize. While I appreciate the cautious nature of this recommendation, I also imagine whoever wrote this rule must got really bored climbing mountains.

Day 1- to Lukla, to Namche

First day of our trek in Nepal: flight to Lukla, one of the most dangerous airports in the world. It’s built on a hillside surrounded by foggy mountains.
