Travel Series Part 4: Kathmandu🇳🇵~ 10/2010
💚 Located at the foothills of the Himalayas, Nepal has been an admired destination for trekkers and climbers since the 1950′s, and has been on my list for a very long time.
We left the buzzing town of Thamel and travelled around Kathmandu. For 3 days we trekked through sprawling forests of pines, oaks, wild cherry and rhododendrons, and rural villages where we caught a glimpse of villagers going about their day. We traversed alpine meadows, hiked through yak pastures and crossed glacial moraines. When the trail narrowed in the jungle, we observed the prayer flags hanging from the trees, floating through the mountain mist. As we gained elevation and started to hike the mountainside footpath, we feasted on the views plunging into a dramatic landscape of maize fields and rice terraces.
