May 8, 2016 - Acclimatization Hike

We all get excited when it’s a rest day, everyone is a bit laid back as we don’t have to hurry to start off. The weather was good as we could see the sun, but the mountains were still behind the clouds. After breakfast we stared our hike to Nagarjun hill. It was a steep hike but as we were getting higher, we could see Mt. Tobuche, Mt. Lhotse, Island Peak and Mt. Amadablam. The views got better as we got higher. 

We hiked upto the first flag, it was above 4400m, as the rule of acclimatization is go high sleep low. Most of them hiked back down to the lodge after we reached the first flag but few of them went a bit ahead.  We reached the lodge for our lunch and enjoyed the rest of the day strolling around.
