A Moment At The Top Of The World

It’s in Nepal that stand the highest mountains in the world. The Nepalis living in high-altitude brave the forces of nature everyday to make a living out of tourism.

Without any roads leading up to the top, food, supplies, tools and medicine must be carried up on the back of porters. The rough climate makes agriculture almost impossible so they rely on livestock for dairies and fabric.

In such conditions, even something as simple and taken for granted as making cheese can be a great accomplishment. Shot in Kyanjin Gompa, Langtang Region, Nepal.
