Annapurna Trail, Nepal
Donkeys are the 18-wheelers or “freight trains” of the Himalayas. You rarely see anything on wheels there because the terrain is just too rugged. We encountered a couple of these trains every day on the trail carrying crates of live chickens, firewood, bags of rice, furniture, and anything else you can imagine. At first there were lots of disgusted complaints about having to dodge “road apples” all the time. But after several miles on the trail we were all grateful to have something soft to step on once in awhile.
