June 2001 - Tatopani to Ghasa

Nepal still life Good, that means scary, suspension bridge.  This one moved and the side cable were too far to grab at the end. Porters baskets.  The porters cart incredibly heavy things up and down the path.  In the north, were there are few trees, they cart wooden beams.  In the south, they haul bags of rice.  Everywhere, they haul nearly everything imaginable.  They carry their loads with a strap strung over their heads and the load resting on their backs.
