Stepzero.one distributed warm clothing to 80 local monks of Samagoan Pema Chyoling Lhakang Monastery. At an elevation of 3800m the village of Samagoan is a main hub for Manaslu Trekking in Gorkha. Gorkha is located in Central Nepal where Buddhism is strongly practiced as a whole religion and the inhabitants from the Tibet origin Gurung, Larke and Siar community depend on Trekkers and small trading for their livelihood.
Similarly, 30 Potters and Sherpa's from various regions of Nepal as Khumbu, Rollwalling, Nuwakot, Kavre and Kathmandu are dependent on distribution.
Thanks to Günther Orgler and the Mountainsports team warm Gortex clothing was donated to withstand the harsh winter and severe snow and cold while they help Trekkers to fulfill their dream of reaching these famous mountain destinations. The potter's community lives on a few dollars per day with poor clothing and gear and they have to spend much of their hard- earned wages on cold related sickness.
