overloaded ...

Children carrying LP Gas cylinders on their backs, one of whom, is bare footed. They were bringing those cylinder to trucks waiting on this side of the landslide. The landslide destroyed about 200m section of the Pasang Lhamu Highway, and people were forced to manually transport goods across the section on a dangerously narrow makeshift path. Although the landslide occurred about 3 months ago, there is no sign of the road being repaired yet.
About 15 kms before Dhunche, Rasuwa District.

By the way, it got published in Nagarik Daily, August 31st. :). Hope people get the message.
