"Sherpa?s simple work ethic is as refreshing as the bracing Himalayan wind on a clear spring day?.

They are alert for ways in which to be used,yet are never insistent,for less service ; since thy are paid to perform a service, why not do it as well as possible?

They wear their attitude like an amour that shines with remarkable cheerfulness, even in the face of object hardship..

They go about as if optimism were their birthright..

Their dignity is unassailable, for the service rendered for its own sake ; it is the task, not the employer that is served."

Peter Mattiessen ( The Snow Leopard)

My impression of them are a jovial branch of people who takes pride in their work. Arduous it may seem, they carry their load ,step by step, to the destination.
