It depends upon how much you can carry. Normally a porter can carry up to 15 kgs. You need to carry extra weight by yourself if you have any. So, it is necessary to optimize weight.

You have to reach to the elevation up to approximately 3900 m. So, there is a slight risk of altitude sickness. However, the acclimatization break in Namche helps you prevent it. You should also carry Diamox or equivalent medicine with you.
