When trekking in the Everest region in the Himalayas, a visit / overnight stay in the relatively large town of Namche Bazaar is almost mandatory. The city lies at an altitude of 3450 m, and there are some steep climbs up to it. The city attracts a large flow of tourists, meaning the need for transportation of goods is significant. This is done mainly by carriers, who carry up to 70 kg in big baskets on their backs. As a trekking tourist with a daypack of 7-9 kilos, you have therefore absolutely no reason to complain, but be thankful that you can get a cold, hard-freighted, beer when you reach the city. In Namche Bazaar, you can, among other things, buy lots of cheap trekking equipment, home-knitted socks, and super delicious pastries that can sweeten your trek just a bit.
