Title: Ang Gyalzen Sherpa and his horse Karsang

"I photographed Ang Gyalzen, Sherpa, early one morning on the shores of the beautiful Gokyo Lake, at an altitude of 4,800m above sea level, while traveling in the Nepalese Himalayas. He was keen to be photographed on his horse Karsang (which means white). Life is tough in the Khumbu region of Nepal and the climbers and trekkers who come through on their way to Everest base camp provide a much needed source of extra income. Ang Gyalzen earns extra income from Karsang by offering weary trekkers a ride on horseback to the nearby Renjo La Pass.”
