On the way to Kedarnath

What it takes to be a sathu....? I notice many of the sathus (not commenting on this photo) are just a normal person that wears a yellow/orange/maroon coloured robe. But where are the real sathus? Meeting all the japas/tapas/sadhana requirements and in the state of a sadhu in their own way?
I can see many still lives in the material world and being attached to it, or maybe they are actually normal persons wearing it to generate income? A sathu celebrating his/her birthday? But i was told that when a person is accepted to that state...it is a spiritual rebirth and is considered to have died. Confused....
The real sathus mainly lives on the mountains and deep in the jungle but some lives among us too.
What it feels to be a sathu / what it feels to live like/as them ..........?


Some use the service of these nepali man to carry them for Rps3000.00
some walks......
Some take horses to the top .....for a fee of Rps800.00 two ways
and some gets a piggy back on their father for free.... lucky ones
rest area for drinks and food.....

As we get close to the destination ......
