The story behind "Tired Nepali porter"

The upper Khumbu Valley has no roads and all goods have to be portered in. In the busy Everest season this means a long stream of porters, carrying up to 120kgs of food, water and other goods.

This guys was passing and though I first took an image of him and his impressive basket, I thought it would be nice to show his tired face, with just a little drop of sweat running down his nose…
