Recently, in Dingri County, Shigatse, Tibet, the 2020 Mount Everest (Mount Everest) elevation survey mountaineering team is heading towards the summit of Mount Everest and strives to reach the summit on May 22. Although the car can be driven to the Mount Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 5,200 meters, from the Mount Everest Base Camp to the Mount Everest Transition Camp at an altitude of 5,800 meters, to the Mount Everest Forward Camp at an altitude of 6,500 meters, the material transportation mainly depends on being called The Yak of the Highland Boat.
Farmers and herdsmen in Zhaxi Zong Township, Tingri County set up a yak transportation team at the foot of Mount Everest, with annual income of hundreds of thousands of RMB. Yaks can carry nearly 40 kilograms of materials, but like people, they also have mountain reactions, and they need to continue to eat forage to maintain physical fitness. From the Everest Base Camp to the Everest Base Camp, the yak has to travel for two days, but it can only stop here. At an altitude of 6,500 meters, people need to carry materials.
