Overview

This first general case study about the Sherpa people in the Yolmo region of Nepal helps to place the more familiar Sherpa of the Solu-Khumbu region of Mt. Everest in comparative context. This study provides an ethnographic description of a village within the broad context of human adaptation to mountain environments, Tibetan regional cultures, and culture change.
