Walking Down, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

This photo was taken during trekking though the Annapurna Circuit, Himalaya, Nepal. While going down from the hills I was passing by many caravans of mules carrying goods to the local villages. This is one of the photographs showing the beauty of the scenery around and hard work of animals walking down.

Did you also take note of how they threw rocks to the animals to “direct” them…? Heaven and hell all in one place.
