Nepal Images - Carrying Baskets







Some villages are so remote that the only way to supply them is either by foot or by donkey.  Not everyone has a donkey, so this was the dominant method.  Notice how the forehead and neck must support all the weight.  If a westerner wanted someone to carry his backpack (which typically distributes the weight around the shoulders and hips), a porter would simply throw the whole thing into one of these baskets and carry it thusly.
