A yak walks past a clothing store in Namche, approximately 3400 meters above sea level in Solukhumbu District April 27, 2014. More than 4,000 climbers have reached the summit of Everest, the world's highest peak, since it was first scaled by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953. In April, an avalanche killed 16 Nepali Sherpa guides who were fixing ropes and ferrying supplies for their foreign clients to climb the 8,850-metre (29,035-foot) peak. The accident - the deadliest in the history of Mount Everest - triggered a dispute between sherpa guides who wanted a climbing ban in honour of their colleagues and the Nepali government that refused to close the mountain. The sherpas staged a boycott, forcing hundreds of foreign climbers to call off their bids to climb Everest. Picture taken April 27, 2014.

Buddhist monks and nuns feed yaks after a snowfall outside the Rongbo Monastery in the Tibet Autonomous Region May 4, 2008. The monestery is the world's highest at an altitude of over 5,100 metres (16,700 feet) and located at the foot of Mount Everest, which is also known as Qomolangma. Fence-mending talks between Chinese officials and the two aides of the Dalai Lama, the first since an eruption of Tibetan protests and deadly riots in March, were scheduled to start on Sunday in the city of Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, with China's president Hu Jintao saying he was hoping for a "positive outcome" from the talks. The unrest, the most serious challenge to Chinese rule in the mountainous region for nearly two decades, prompted anti-China protests around the world that disrupted the international leg of the Olympic torch relay and led to calls for Western leaders to boycott August's Beijing Games.

Across China's mountainous west, armed troops watch over the Tibetan monasteries and towns that have emerged as hotbeds of protest kindled by traditions of defiance and newer economic grievances. More than the Tibet Autonomous Region itself, where the upsurge of anti-Chinese protests and riots erupted last month, the historically Tibetan parts of neighbouring provinces have defied efforts to smother unrest with troop convoys, roadblocks and patrols, and warnings of harsh punishment to lawbreakers.

Himalayan region for without them the famous Trans-Himalayan trade between
Nepal and Tibet would have been impossible. Yaks cannot live below 10,000
feet (3,048 metres) because of their thick coat and vulnerability to
diseases. Their lungs are well-developed to take in more oxygen in higher
