For your safety
The common risk as you trek above 2500m is Altitude sickness.
Altitude sickness is instigated by acute exposure to the low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitudes. The available amount of oxygen to endure mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude and since the available oxygen drops as the altitude decreases, the altitude sickness quite becomes a problem.
So, don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.

Since Everest View Hotel is situated at an elevation of 3880m you need to be careful regarding the altitude sickness.
