Herdsman Zhaxi (1st R) chats with friends on an alpine pasture at Zangpu Village in Zhaxizom Township of Tingri County, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, April 23, 2020. Zhaxi and his family live in the plateau village Zangpu, which is the nearest administrative village to the world's highest peak Mount Qomolangma. Back to 2008, then 26-year-old Zhaxi, fell in love with Deden, a girl six years younger than him. Zhaxi decided to marry Deden while living apart from his original large family that owned a family asset of more than 200 yaks. Splitting from the family, Zhaxi only got seven yaks.

Dwelling in a rented small house that could only fit a bed, Zhaxi and his wife barely made ends meet by merely grazing livestock. In order to support the family, Zhaxi applied for a loan to buy a truck to carry out transport business. For years, Zhaxi worked very h
