Carving a Home out of the Mountain

Namche Bazaar is carved out of the side of the mountain.

Surrounded by the majestic Himalayas, we have carved our homes out of the mountains, earning a living by supporting those who trek to Everest Base Camp. As I reflect on the impacts humans continue to make on our plant, I can’t help but glance down upon my village and notice the impact that we all make, even when we seek to minimize it.  I feel fortunate that I have the beauty of the natural world at my door.
