👣 METHODS OF TRANSPORT II.

I was thinking about it....
👣 & 💪 are not the only methods of transport! 🐎 Donkeys are also used, & Yaks (not seen on the Annapurna Base Camp-ABC trek that I did 😔...but they are used a lot elsewhere). .
These donkeys were making their way back down the mountain with empty gas bottles.
ALL food, gas & other supplies for the last 2 camps (Machhapuchere-MBC & ABC
is transported up by donkeys.
AMAZING!
.
So grateful for the efforts of these beautiful creatures. 💛
.
P.S. The white donkey in the photo nearly took out a fellow hiker who was hard up against the side of the mountain. Donkey did not account for the width of gas bottle! Hiker was "saved" by sturdy push on the gas bottle by our Guide. Phew! That would have hurt!! 🐎

👣 METHODS OF TRANSPORT I .
No roads = no cars, no motorbikes. Only tracks & stairs (A LOT OF STAIRS!)
.
Just 👣 & 💪
Because it is the only way.

This is a VERY quick sketch out of my journal & the inspiration that I passed on the track.
Would you like to see more of my quick sketches from my Nepal adventure? 🙄
