Photographer's Note

Taken as we were leaving the Khumbu valley, after our views of Everest. Everything that enters the Khumbu valley is either on the back of a porter, a Yak, or in the belly of a helicopter.

Here is an image of the former. We saw some crazy things being carried and some crazy amounts as well. Porters in the Himalaya can carry more than their bodyweight... an average load is 130%!

Not for me... my camera and tripod were enough.
