13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I have met this ethnic Tibetan boy in his native village on 2,380 m altitude in Manaslu area (Nepal). You may not find in the whole world such an independent and self confident children like those in Himalayas who live a simple natural life. While parents are busy working on the farm, these kids learn empirically the world around them. In such a harsh environment for children from the first years had to become self-sufficient. They do not have the slightest knowledge of the achievements of industrial civilization, but it does not prevent them becoming strong, harmonious, happy and whole person.
