Photo taken in front of Swet Bhairab during Indra Jatra with Mr. Subin Kumar Kushle

How does the new face of Swet Bhairav Look ?

Today was the last day of Indra Jatra. I wanted to take some picture of girls day of Indra Jatra, which happens to be on 3rd day which came to know today. I got wrong information that today was girls day. It would have been fun capturing all these crazy girls trying reach the pipe that’s coming out from the Swet Bhairav mouth to get the taste of drinks which will make them more crazy.

I have not been to many museum, but the one at Patan Durbar is worth full to visit once. There are still renovation going inside the palace, which will increase its importance in future. Due to some technical problem, I was not able to capture things kept inside the museum.

It is one of the main tourist attraction in Kathmandu valley which invites thousands of foreign visitors every month.

I was amazed by this shot – a spider hanging by the web

I always wanted to have some macro photography. Due to lack of macro lens I could not get the desired macro shots from the tele lens that I have. Today we went to Godawari Botanical Garden for Photo Walk with macro theme. Many thanks for Mr. Om Yadav dai for making this theme possible today. Om dai is the person who is initiating weekly Photo Walk program among enthusiast photographers in the Kathmandu valley.

I used my 80-200 mm lens but was not satisfied with the macro shots I was shooting from it. Finally after my friend Mr. Samir Pradhananga who finished shooting his macro shots let me borrowed his 90 mm macro lens.

As I start taking the shots (took only few shots as we were in hurry to return back home) I was telling myself wow to every shot that I took from that lens. I think I will get addicted to macro photography soon and I need to get one macro lens soon. Time to save some money to get macro lens.

The Asian one horned rhino at Royal Chitwan National Park
The one-horned rhino – Identity of Royal Chitwan National Park

Nepal is a land of wonder. East, west, north or south everywhere we go around this country we will find many things to be amazed of. Either it is by its natural beauty or festival and culture of each ethnic groups. Nepal has flat sea level lands to high mountains of Himalaya Range.  Extreme hot weather to chilling cold temperature. I am in a mission to visit at least some of the most amazing places in Nepal and luckily this time I got an opportunity to visit one of the best natural place in Nepal, the “Royal Chitwan National Park”. The park where endangered wildlife like Tiger, the Asian one-horned Rhino and Ghariyal crocodile are conserved.

World Heritage site - Boudha Nath StupaBoudha Nath Stupa

I always wanted to have some evening shots of Boudha Nath Stupa. It is one of the World Heritage Site listed by UNESCO. This year on the day of Buddha Jayanti i got this opportunity. Me and my friends Mr. Rukesh Shrestha, Mr. Samir Pradhananga and Mr. Pritush Maharjan were lucky enough to get the perfect place to capture some moments. I would like to thank the person from Sakura Restaurant who allowed us to go to their rooftop so that we can take some shots. It’s really sad that the potential tourist destination like Boudha have time limit for the visitors and devotees to spend time on the stupa, as they were asked to leave the stupa premises after 8 p.m. Me and Samir had some concept to take the picture from the inside premises of the stupa but we could not do it due to this rule. Hope some day we go again and request the guards to get our dream shot.
