Nepal 2012

Tomorrow will see me heading off to Nepal on another photo shoot. Nepal, officially the Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked sovereign state located in South Asia. With an area of 147,181 square kilometres (56,827 sq mi) and a population of approximately 27 million, Nepal is the world’s 93rd largest country by land mass and the 41st most populous country. It is located in the Himalayas and bordered to the north by the Peoples Republic of China, and to the south, east, and west by the India.

We’ll be spending a few days in Kathmandu (capital of Nepal) photographing the many temples, and of course taking in as much of the local culture as possible. Our next stop will be Pokhara, where we hope photograph locations such as the Davis Falls, Phewa Lake, the Seti Gorge, and of course views of Himalaya’s and in particular the Annapurna Range. From Pokhara we’ll travel over to the Chitwan National Park, home of the very rare one-horned rhinoceros, and if we’re really lucky we might even see a tiger. Our last couple of days will be spent in Nagarkot and Bhaktapur photographing rural activity and landscape together with people and street activity.

Most of the hotels we’ll be staying at have internet service, but this doesn’t mean that it actually works. Nevertheless, I’ll try post a few images as I travel around the country.
