How it Works?
When using over a flat non-rocky terrain, the Sherpa stick allows the Nepali to wheel the load over the terrain like a trolley. By simply bending slightly forward, the Sherpa stick also allows the load to be carried over the rocky terrains sections of the mountain paths. If the terrain is extremely rocky, the Sherpa stick can be lifted up and the load can be carried across the terrain as per normal. When travelling down slope, the Sherpa stick can be used in a reversed manner and wheeled down the slope like a trolley.
OHF has since tested several prototypes and are working to produce hundreds of Sherpa sticks to be given to poor Nepali villagers living in the mountainous areas. We hope that with this new invention, we can help to lighten the load that these Nepalese carry on a daily basis, thus making a difference in their lives.
