A boy carries 50-kilogram sack of rice, merely supported by a head-strap. He has to walk up and down the hills to reach his village in the Annapurna mountain regions. The mountain people of Nepal are known to be extremely physically strong. They are used to carry heavy burdens with their strong head, and at the same time, trek the difficult mountain terrain on daily basis.
