Phewa Lake in Pokhara Nepal is a major tourist attraction and a photographers delight. In this post we find out the reasons as we undertake a lazy afternoon boat ride. This was 2 years ago and hope nothing much has changed now there
We share a strong emotional connection with Nepal . Its people, nature and history . On a fateful afternoon of 25th April 2015 the city is struck by an Earthquake which is worse in last 80 years . Next 2 days the city spends under open sky . Death toll keeps on ticking . History is ruined . My thoughts
When we reached Durbar Square in Patan little did we know that we will witness an unique festival of worshipping rain god through a Chariot journey .Rato Machhendranath is considered as the reincarnation of the Lord Shiva by Hindus, while the Buddhists regard him as the Tantric reincarnation of Avalokiteshvara. A 300 year old temple at southern part of Durbar square Patan is where it all started .
At 1100 metres height on Ananda hills The World Peace Pagoda in Pokhara Nepal overlooks the Annapurna Mountain range which reflects off Lake Phewa Tal below. It is thus one of the more serene peace pagodas in the world. On a cloudy day we climbed about 200 steps with a 2 year old only to get disheartened and getting our rewards later .
