From 1800 m altitude to 5545 m altitude trekkers will slowly get acclimatized. 

However, an experienced trekking guide is highly essential. Most of the trail within the village is confusing. There are numerous rural trails that might confuse trekkers. Therefore, accompanied by a trustworthy guide. The lower portion of the trekking is through temperate forests while in the middle phase one can observe the coniferous forests. Furthermore, alpine and tundra vegetation can be experienced beyond Tengboche. No wonder Salleri to Everest Base Camp is a natural excursion too.
