Yaks are located in the mountainous regions of China, India, Nepal, as well as the mountains of Tibet, at an altitude of 4,000-6,000 m or 12,800-19,200 ft. There are about 12 million yaks in the world. The yak is currently regarded as a vulnerable species, particularly wild yak. Most yaks are domestic, used for transportation, meat, and milk in Tibet.
It is believed that yaks were domesticated during the first BC millennium and live within human habitats of the high plateaus of Central Asia. There are roughly 12 million domesticated yaks found worldwide. The wild yak, somewhat smaller than domesticated yaks, have adapted to the harsh highlands and rough terrain of Central Asia.
