Acclimatization helps you to let the body adjusts to high elevation. It is mandatory to stay at the place for a day or more for recovering the body. It helps you to make more familiar to the thin air of the mountains.
It is recommended to spend one or two days at the same altitude for every 1,000 meters depends on your health conditions. You must spend acclimatization days while you trek to the Everest Region and Kanchenjunga region.


b) Hydrate
