DINGBOCH Acclimatization Day

At this altitude, the human body needs time to adjust to the environment so take your day to acclimatize to the high altitude climate. Rather than just sitting around, we encourage you to attempt one of the two hikes we recommend. The short and best option is to ascend the hill immediately behind Dingboche which takes about four hours to reach the top. The view from the top will just blow your mind. Your four hours effort to reach the top will be eventually rewarded.
