Both of them are Samduk's and Tenzin's Yaks. Most of the people are returning home. Is today a special day? I think it's an auspicious day. It was the day before, right? Snow is already melted. —I am sure Yartsa are grown by now. Look at the Ganesh himal. Wind is blowing its snow. Looks like there is a plain area at its peak. Must be as big as football ground.—I don't think so. What did he say? He said there looks like a football ground at the peak. I don't think so. Are you looking for Yartsa now? I don't see them. When will we reach. It's far to get. Are you getting hungry?—No, but I am getting tried. Can you do like this? It looks like female yak? Do like this! You can't do it.— Is that the white horse? There are two horses next to where we fetch water. They were there for a long time.—They were across the river earlier. Lets go. — I thought they were right there. Do you get lot of Yartsa right this area? Oh! Great!—So wonderful! Migmar found it first. Looks like old one. Eat the top part. How good is Yartsa? Must be good. Let's go up higher to find. There are people over there. People are over there as well.—Where? Near the snow.—Yes, next to it. You mean further up?—They are higher up there. Let's go to shepherd house. There's good scenery. Let's go. Don't scream! There's pheasant.—Where? Pheasant!...—Pheasant? Pheasant!—They are living at shepherd house. Over there or there...where shall we go? Where shall we?—Lets go this way. Nyudup! Here! I will kick it. Throw at me. You didn't throw nice. Throw straight towards me. Ok, throw now. That'll attack! Might get killed. Nyudup, tell Andrew not to go near that yak and It might attack. Are these pheasants? Let's search that side. Kumar, when I reach there. You guys have to spread away. OK! Where shall we go?—Hide behind. We have to make it look good. Let's go this way. Which way shall we take? Let's go! Seems like lots of Yartsa are found there. They are searching. Move! Move! When I reach there all of you spread away. I'll let you know when I reach there. Keep quiet! You made noise so it flew away.
