15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
A day in the life of a porter

This was taken in the mountains of Nepal. I was hiking with some friends of mine on our way to Chommrong, when I noticed these two porters with a load strapped to their head. This is how they carry food, supplies, and I even saw one of them carrying a lame person.
