A crossbred of a yak and an ox, referred to locals as dzopkyo, climbs a major pathway in Namche Bazaar. Trailing is a convoy of mules carrying supplies of liquefied petroleum gas while bipedals give way.
A local takes some time off from her daily chores to speak to her family.
Namche Bazaar is quite a unique experience. While a village that serves as a center of Sherpa culture, traces of outside influence are ubiquitous. It is a place where the old ways cross with the new. With alleyways lined with shops selling practically everything, you can try something genuinely local or stick to what you are familiar with.
