Nepal has long been considered a haven for photographers; beginning its majestic Himalayan ranges, ranging from the highest peak in the world, Mt. Everest; to its Terai plains, home to its many national reserves set up to protect hundreds of endangered plants, animals and birds. Besides this, Nepal has a rich cultural history with scores of different cultures intermingling and many different religions co-existing in harmony for hundreds of years. For decades, this tiny country has been the destination for photographers from different countries who have sought to capture the bountiful natural beauty and the treasure trove of its cultural diversity.
Stricken by the earthquakes of April and May, 2015, Nepal has struggled to recover its economy. However, the resilience of her people is so that they welcome you with open arms and a friendly demeanor and leave your feelings resonating in the warmth of their hospitality.
