Les yaks vivent entre 2 000 et 5 000 mètres d’altitude. Adaptés au milieu himalayen, ces imposants mammifères peuvent transporter plus de 120 kilos de charge ; les femelles fournissent du lait. De longues caravanes de yaks assurent le commerce de nombreuses denrées dans les régions les plus reculées de l’Himalaya. Le nombre de yaks domestiques est estimé à 12 millions.
