Whenever western mountaineers return from Mount Everest, they tell stories about the strains, their triumph, and their victory against themselves. And they talk about the Sherpas, who carrying heavy loads, led them to the summit. But who are those Sherpas really? And what does it mean for their families, when they have to leave their homes for months in order to do their profitable but also dangerous jobs?
