Life Of A Porter

Porters and supply trains are the lifeline for the secluded Nepal mountain regions, bringing in necessary goods villagers would not be able to receive any other way. At the age of 66, Tsewang Dorje keeps no permanent address.

As an egg porter, he carries a steel frame with 840 eggs weighing between 130 to 150 pounds. If he's careful, he'll only break a couple eggs during his journey, and make roughly $90.
