This little town’s claim to fame is its convenient position along the Friendship Highway between China and Nepal. Also called Xegar or New Tingri, it offers an excellent enroute stoppage to the Everest Base Camp and back and continues to be favored by travelers and trekkers alike. Xegar is dominated by a single highstreet, bordered by a few guesthouses, local restaurants and traditional Tibetan-style tea houses that serve typical local delicacies and the occasional apple pie as well!
