Hiking at Dingboche is the best way to enjoy the rest day, climate, landscape, tradition, in Chhukung valley. The sun appears late till evening and the breeze is soft, so the short excursion to Nangkar Tshang peak (5,616m) is awe-inspiring.

Makalu (8,463m) along with other few peaks. Also, visit Nangkar Tshang Gompa on the way to your return to Dingboche.
