Abstract

The Mount Everest region of Nepal receives more than 8 000 trekking tourists every year. Tourism has brought new opportunities for the Sherpa people who inhabit the Khumbu area. The A. documents the economic development that has occurred. In spite of these changes, values, beliefs and subsistence activities have continued as in the past.―(DWG)
