Kathmandu, still beautiful

Kathmandu, still beautiful

The smallest tour; the less you see, the more you’re intrigued!

The Country of Nepal, has been hugely impacted by the recent earthquakes and its tremors, as we know it. Nevertheless, the city of Kathmandu is gradually coping up with its loss. It’s mostly covered with smog, owing to the reconstruction work progressing on every road and monument across the city. However, the views are still as breathtaking as they can ever be.

I had started taking pictures of the Himalayan stretch from the flight itself 🙂

My call for Nepal was an invitation to a friend’s wedding! Hence we (my husband & I) just had 2 full days at hand; we had to plan the most of it without hampering our presence at the wedding ceremonies. So on the day of our arrival, we went out in the evening, to explore the most happening street of Kathmandu; Thamel. It is like the eating and shopping center of the city!

The next morning, we went out to see few of the monuments of the city;

And the day had ended with our evening visit to Pashupatinath Temple, to enjoy the mind refreshing aarti (^)

The following morning, we set sail early towards Nagarkot, hoping to see the sunrise among the Himalayan range; little did we know that the sun would be shying behind the mighty clouds and fog that day :p

And that was all we could explore, as the evening was scheduled for the wedding reception and the next morning was the wedding, followed by our exit flight.

We already have plans to pay another long-term visit to this country and the list covers a lot of places 🙂

  1. It’s always so devastating when natural disasters impact beautiful locations. Glad to hear this nation is still intact!

  2. I just read about Patan Square recently! It being a UNESCO site, its good that you didn’t miss it, inspite of your very short stay there! The sculptural and architectural marvel here is stunning! Hoping you’d go again!!!

  3. Just got back from my own trip last month and loved it. Especially Patan and Bhaktapur Square. Such amazing architecture there. Thanks for reminding me of my own trip 🙂

  4. oh my, i love your pictures.. your photos are all visually delightful and you have captured the ambiance so perfectly! I have never been to Nepal but I would love to witness the himalayan range of mountains in my own naked eyes.. it was just a great beauty to marvel

  5. Kathmandu is a very beautiful and special place. I visited it 10 years ago and I am sure that it changed a lot since then.

  6. Wow! I love all your photos especially the temple shots. I believe that touring around, appreciating architecture and immersing yourself to the entire culture makes you love the experience more! Kathmandu is a special place and I wish I can make a visit soon.
