A series of my photographs from Kathmandu, Nepal and surroundings areas. Some parts of Katmandu was reduced to ruble from the earthquake disaster in April 2015 I visited Nov – Dec 2015.
I found the people to be happy and the place although cold at the time to be so vibrant with intermittent colour with the prayer flags, rickshaws and peoples clothing to be particular bright. The places featured in the photos here are Maru (aka Durbar Square), Thamel, The Monkey Temple (Swayambhunath) and Shivapuri National Park. I did a day hike around Shivapuri which was enjoyable but give yourself a good day to do it the Monkey Temple and Durban Square took half a day each.
