Yak on the Everest Trail #2 by 

This was a fundraising trek to the base camp of Mt. Everest raising money for orphanages in Kathmandu, Nepal. It was my launching pad for my travels through Asia — my first ever trip to that part of the world. I’d never seen a “village” before that trip! So many incredible firsts…. :)

Yaks were amazingly agile. They could cross suspension bridges, climb rocks, walk across rock paths and all with up to 200 pounds on their backs. They always had the right of way on the trails! I can still hear the clang of the bells around their necks …

  • The yak were such fun to see. I was astonished at how incredibly agile they were across some very challenging terrain.

    what a great capture…I feel sorry for those Yaks…looks like they carry a load…

  • These in the pic are actually carrying light loads. Some would have gigantic duffel bags on each side. Amazing creatures. So fun to see.
