Nepal is a land of unparalleled scenic beauty located within one of the most geographical diverse areas on earth. Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalaya between China and India, it has retained its essentially agrarian and medieval character. Its wondrous history and geography are still the defining aspects of everyday life.
Since Nepal first opened its frontiers to foreign visitors in the fifties, it has been the epicenter of Himalayan photographic activities. Photography in Nepal not only offers an opportunity to immerse oneself in Himalayan bliss but also a rare opportunity chance to take a step back in time.
Standing before the entire world is a vivid kaleidoscope of picturesque landscapes, heavenly high-altitude meadows, magnificent mountains, incredible travel destinations, unique culture, festivals, ancient heritage, pristine backwaters and exotic cuisine.
Nepal is undoubtedly a photographer’s delight, a land of eternal fascination!!!
