Photo Of The Day – Dzokyos and Kantega

Title: Dzokyos and Kantega

Location: On the route to Everest Basecamp near Dughla, Solukhumbu, Nepal, Asia

Description: Dzokyos are a cross between high altitude (and shaggy) yaks and lower elevation cows (not so shaggy). They bridge the gap in a need for a pack animal that can operate at lower climates where the yaks will overheat and are often used to ferry supplies to Everest Basecamp, ostensibly where these fellas are heading.
