Old man of Manaslu region

From the back of the card...
An old man of Manaslu region still at work:
Age can wrinkle the face but can't sap the strength and spirit of the Himalayan hardy men.

This card is one in a set I got from a store in Portland selling Nepalese handicrafts. (Blank & unused.) It smells like the incense they were burning in the shop when I bought it.

Manaslu is the name of both a mountain and a region east of the Annapurna range. Most of the google hits (at least in English) are for tour companies that offer trekking packages.
