Have you ever wondered what makes Sherpas such amazing high altitude climbers? If so, this video will be of interest. It dives deep into the biology behind these superhuman mountaineers, explaining exactly why they perform so well in thin air and seem to thrive in alpine environments. Hint: After living in the Himalaya for thousands of years, they aren’t exactly built like the rest of us. Very interesting stuff.
