Photographer's Note

A porter carrying a stack of wood that looks like a door up from Namchee Bazaar to Khumjung which is about a 45 minute walk up hill from Namchee. Khumjung is where Sir Edmund Hillary built his first of many schools for local Sherpa communities. The porters are very strong and in my opinion under paid people. This pile of wood must have been around 90-100 lbs. This photo was taken on the 10th day of our Everest Base Camp trek that started in Jiri. Please enjoy and leave feedback.
