A word about the Sherpas.
The Solu Khumbu region is famous not only for the mountains but also for its people, the Sherpa's who migrated south from eastern Tibet over five hundred years ago. They are well acclimatized to the harsh realities of high mountain life. There are no equals where endurance is concerned which make them the driving force essential for all mountain expeditions in Nepal.
Sherpas have always been keen traders; some still maintain a nomadic lifestyle moving up and down the mountain terrain depending on the season in search of new pastures to graze their Yak. The milk of the Yak produces splendid cheese, high in fat and ideal for the harsh climate.
It is said there would be no Sherpa's without a Yak; along with dairy products, it is also provides transport, is a very good source of protein, gives oil for lanterns and also clothes and rugs which are either weaved from its hair or used as hide after death.
Sherpa's often trade over the Tibetan border and Yaks transport various goods to lower and higher altitudes dependent on seasonal need.
