More Than Everest

Photograph by Aaron Huey, National Geographic

For the Sherpas of Nepal, the years spent working on Mount Everest are fraught with danger. Some Sherpa families in the Everest region send their children to live with relatives in Kathmandu so they can attend schools there. The parents hope the next generation won’t have to risk their lives working on the mountain.
