Photographer's Note

On the trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal it is common place to see porters carrying loads which are in excess of their body weight. Most of the food supplies for the trekkers and the building materials for the trekkers accommodation are carried by these very strong porters - yaks also carry heavy loads for the benefit of the trekkers.

Here a laden down porter is walking up the steep slope to Namche Bazaar on the second day of the trek.

The internal walls of the Teahouse accommodation are made with one sheet of plywood - thus the thickness of a sheet of plywood is all that separates you from the snorer in the room next door!
