But this is what it looks like when you get up close.  The holes are made by Yaks who weigh more than 1000 pounds empty, and then get loaded up with hundreds of pounds of supplies.  Their hooves go through the old wood all the time.  You might be able to see the holes filled with rocks.  That's to stop the Yaks from going all the way through, and really hurting themselves.
