Yak, Yak, Yak.

Yaks are engines that sustain life here.

Humans have learned to adapt the environment and many of the animals that live there to ensure our own survival. To sustain us, we have learned to change the landscape to grow the crops we need to survive. The Yak is perfectly adapted to live in the high altitudes of the Himalayas, and humans have learned to work with this hearty animal to help us to thrive here as well, both to transport supplies up the mountain and to provide milk and butter. I find the regular clanging of the yak bells soothing and reassuring.

Yaks carry goods across a bridge.
