One Sentence Summary: The article discusses the ecological constraints on trans-Himalayan trade in Nepal as well as the various groups involved in trade.

Description: The article discusses the ecological constraints on trans-Himalayan trade in Nepal. It discusses the primary trade route where main markets and entrepots are interconnected. One such route is the route between Jomson and Butwal, along the Kali-Gandaki river in western Nepal. The participation of Thakali, Gurung, and Bhotiya ethnic groups in Himalayan trade is considered. The involvement of Newars is also discussed, along with a description of the good relations between Buddhism and Hinduism. The article starts with a quote from Haimendorf in which he writes that anthropologists have long recognized that economic organization is closely related with social relations. The article includes 7 leaves of plates. (Rajeev Ranjan Singh 2007-01-11)
