The young and Old – Faces from Nepal.

I have spent more time In Nepal than in any other country, so it’s about time for a Photo Essay right!? Well it’s not so much a photo essay, as it is a collection of some of my favourite portraits (If we want to get technical!) I have met many amazing people on my travels in Nepal. These are just a handful. I will definitely be back in the future, to hopefully add a few more to this collection! :)

A Holy Baba (Sadhu) at Pashnupatinath, Kathmandu.

A young boy in Janakpur, a town which very closely resembles India...

How can you not fall in love with this smile.. I know I did! Probably the cutest girl I have ever met on my travels! (A very small village outside of Janakpur.)

Janakpur again. Not that many tourists go here, so that made the place all the more friendly!

One of my favourite portraits I've taken on my travels... I took 2 shots very quickly and this was one of them! :)

A proud Nepali! :)

Another painted up bearded, slightly more hip Baba!

On the Annapurna Trail, another quick shot reveals a friendly Goat Shepard.

Another cutie. This girl was wondering down the trail on her own. It took a few requests but eventually she plucked up the courage for a photo!

This was one of the Hotel Owners along the trail. We couldn't agree on a price, so eventually I let her have her way, providing I could take her picture ;)

This kind man sheltered my friend and I from the harsh cold and gave a piping hot bowl of noodles and tea. Went down a treat. A kind soul...

This cheeky boy had been sent by his parents to fetch a Chicken from the nearest town. He spent a good while entertaining us along the way!

So I hope enjoyed seeing a few faces from Nepal. If you haven’t visited this magical country yet, I suggest you do! You wont regret it! :)

There is an old saying that one who has visited Nepal, always returns! :) Have you already been to Nepal, what did you think?
