30 Photos That Will Make You Want To Visit Nepal

Six weeks passed in no time and our visit to Nepal was up.

We spent time high in the mountains, searching for our next breath surrounded by dramatic peaks surging upwards, while ice-blue glacial rivers roared below; we high-fived pink-cheeked children as they danced and sung around us; and we explored the dense, tropical lowlands of the south in search of Tiger and Rhino, while birds chirped our location to the hunted.

We spent weeks in the capital, Kathmandu, slowly winding our way through the loud and crowded streets, searching for relics of years past; the gilded hindu and buddhist temples that make this city so rich, and the stupas, where Buddha’s eye gazes far and wide over the valley below; and we had eaten every. last. bit. of dal bhat and momo, while spending time with our new found local friends.

Yep, Nepal was grand. We want you to see and feel what we did, so here’s 30 photos of Nepal that will make you want to visit in no time.

    Mark and Mim, it’s so great to read about Nepal. We visited last year, for 3 months! We left behind so many wonderful friends! Your post brings back so many memories. We were lucky to have stayed with a Nepali Family.
    We even made it to Everest Base Camp…Independently! Looking forward to go back one day, and tackle the Annapurna Circuit!!
