Photographer's Note

This picture was taken on the way from Pheriche (4200m) to Lobuche on the Everest Base Camp Trek. It shows the daily life of the Sherpas, who inhabit this region. It also displays the life of Yaks, maybe the most abused animals ever. Ensuring transportation, fur, wool, milk, meat, bones, fuel (dried dung), they get nothing in return, for they have to look for food themselves, mostly dry, thorny plants and small bushes.

Besides, how many Yaks do you see? 'cos I see 3 ;-)
