    Favorite thing: Clouds often cover up the view of the Himalayas, but we were patient enough to wait until they cleared to see the sunrise on them. This is definitely worth the whole effort of getting to Xegar and sleeping there, however basic and dismal the journey and conditions may seem.

    Favorite thing: At some 8848 meters above sea level, the Everest is the highest peak in the world. This was the climax of our trip - we caught this glimpse just between two clouds.

    Favorite thing: This is the reason we came all the way to Xegar: to see the Himalayas and the Everest. Some 4500 meters above sea level, this village is also called New Tinggri. Very basic accommodation allowed us to be this close to the highest summit in the world.
