Today we stayed in Namche Bazzar for acclimatization and morning after breakfast walked up to the View point which is a steep climb of around 45 min and then gradual climb for another 1hr, totally climbing around 400 meters. Today got the first experience of climbing at high altitude and was out of breath quiet frequently. After some time the wind started blowing and suddenly there were clouds all around us blocking the view to the mountain peaks. Stopped some 50 meters from the view point and had some refreshments. At this height the clouds were moving below and around us. Started walking down and realized its a bit tricky to climb down the hill with stone stairs. Slowly we reached down around 11:30am and went into the SherpaMuseum (entrance fee Rs 100/-) and the photo museum dedicated to the Sherpas who climbed Mt Everest. Bought some post cards and panorama view of the mountains and back to the hotel at 1:00pm and had a good lunch. Next was time for a hot shower and shave which would be my last till we return back may be after 10-14 days. Felt refreshed after a hot shower in 3 days and after shave continued to read books and chat with the locals and other trekkers. The day went by and after early dinner retired to bed.
