Yaks on a trail
A Yak carrying his lunch. See the big bell around his neck?
I needed to carry a lot of clothes and gear to climb Mount Everest. It was impossible to carry all of this by myself so I got help from the local Sherpa people and animals called Yaks. Yaks are big furry animals that are very strong and are able to keep their feet on narrow paths. Their keepers are very careful not to put too much on the yaks' backs. They make sure they have lots of food and water every day. I like the yaks because they are big and furry.
