NEPAL + INDIA 2011
NEPAL. ANNAPURNA CIRCUIT PART 3
Kagbeni was my favorite village of the whole circuit
Late afternoon is the best time to observe the local people's live
There was something special about Kagbeni, it feels like a medieval village
Most houses here don't have running water
The town's pre-Buddhist protector
In case you didn't notice it's phallus, here is a close-up
Houses in Kagbeni
Woman entering the village and turning prayer wheels
From this point a special Upper Mustang permit is required. It costs $500 for 10 days
However, looking at Upper Mustang is free from here
Tourists can visit Upper Mustang only in a group with a guide. Maybe in my next life...
It never hurts to ask a tourist for sweets or even money
A photo together? This I can do!
Morning view down the Kali Ghandaki valley. Start early to avoid the afternoon wind!
Some say Kali Ghandaki is the deepest canyon on Earth, with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri on both sides
Road between Jomsom and Marpha
The road bypasses Marpha and has not destroyed the atmosphere
Woman crushing lentils by turning the stone wheel
A very long bridge across the Kali Ghandaki river
Village of Khobang. Hotels are empty because most tourists finish their trek in Jomsom
Our hotel in Larjung
A small and simple watermill in Larjung
Local women who came to make flower
Dhaulagiri 8167m. Can you believe it's 5600m above me?
This type of stairs is very common here. Did you notice the dog on the roof?
Cirrus clouds form over Dhaulagiri
Cirrus clouds form in the highest and coldest region of the troposphere and are usually composed of ice crystals.
In Konjo many people came to have a look at my stove
Annapurna range from Lete
