We can either spend the day by taking a day's hike to Thame or visit Khunde or relax and explore the Namche Bazaar itself. Namche Bazzar is the main centre of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. A trek of a few hundred vertical feet during the day, will help us to acclimatize properly.
