Porters carry incredible amounts of load up & down very steep paths, like this guy with around 10 planks of plywood.
Distances are very deceptive in the mountains, what might seem like 20 minutes walk could turn out to be 2 hours of strenuous trek.

Samit made the sword & butterfly wings for these sweet kids. The little boy kept prodding everyone along at the end of his "sword point"

You always walk to the left of the prayer rocks. I have seen porters ignore this and walk on the right side at hard stretches. Can't blame them.
This was one of the most scary bridges, the planks were decayed and with holes.
