After some nice hiking up at Rongbuk Base Camp, the Tibet Trekkers have now reached Shegar (Xegar). This is the famous old Tibetan town with the old Dzong (fort) on the hill above. The British expeditions of the 1920’s and 30’s came through this town on their way from Kalimpong (India) as they trekked around from the north to get to Everest. Next stop tomorrow for the trek team is Shigatse (Xigazê).
