Photo # 10 of 92
This woman was tending a herd of 20 cows and yaks at 3500m, 2 Km NE of Pike in Nepal. There is a little yak hidden by the pail (see next photo).
As is common in the higher elevations of Nepal, this woman has a distinct Tibetan heritage. She may even be a recent Tibetan refugee, as there are many now in Nepal.
October 20, 1997.
