It’s been quite a while since I have done any nature photography. This weekend called up a few friends to join me for an early morning photography trip to a hill in the west of Kathmandu known as Dahachok.
This hill area is famous for Kalu Pande samadhi. Kalu Pande is a great warrior of the Gorkha arm who fought for the Gorkha royals who were fighting with the neighboring state for expansion which led to the current borders of the Nepal kingdom.
It’s been quite a long time since I have walked long. Had a few plans for short treks and hike but were not able to manage them. A few days back my friends plan for a short hike but were not able to choose the place. They asked to me choose a destination and join them for a Saturday hike. Jamachoo has always attracted me as it’s always seen whenever I point my camera to the north side of Kathmandu valley, it pops up in my photographs.
When FIFA announced the goal projects for Nepal, I had thoughts that Nepal’s football will just turn upside down in a blink of an eye. That was what my initial thoughts and Mr. Ganesh Thapa was the president of ANFA. I had some crazy thoughts after that, at least Nepal will be a powerhouse of South Asia in a decade or so as I felt Nepalese love football more than any other south Asian country besides Bangladesh.
I have never played in club-level football tourneys but I have been familiar with Nepalese football since my childhood. The passion is still there. I still play futsal with my old friends now and then. As I was growing up, I used to go to Dashrath Stadium to watch games. Those days were something else. Stadium used to be full of spectators back then. I still remember some unforgettable moments of Nepalese football. You can pick your spot inside one of the greatest stadiums ever built, just buy Manchester United tickets allowing you to see your most anticipated fixture or multiple matches at Old Trafford.

It’s been like half decade that we are facing a big problem
for vehicle parking in Kathmandu. I still remember we used to park bike single
lane at New Road and we used to pay 1 rupee. After the maoist insurgency the
over flow of people all over Nepal to Kathamndu valley for safety made the
valley to grow very fast and un-systematically.
After the devastating earthquake that hit Nepal on 25th April, many people formed groups visiting quake hit areas and villages providing relief materials. Most of these groups were distributing tents for shelter and foods for the earthquake victims.
At the same time, we too had a group of friends from the field photography, both professionals and some as a hobbyist brought together by Ajay Rana Bhat. After seeing some badly hit towns like Bungamati and Shakhu, we decided to go there to make aware about sanitation and health issues while they are staying at tents. They named their group “Desh lai hamro khaacho cha” (The country needs us).
Nepal is beautiful, I have made a Windows Desktop background with the pictures that I have taken. It is a collection of picture of heritage site of Nepal. Please click the above picture to download the background for your Desktop.
I support Local Empowerment. So, I’m sharing this Everest Base Camp Trek to promote a new way of trekking where trekkers can empower the local service providers like lodges, guides and porters by booking services directly through them. #empoweringthehimalayas #freetriptoeverest
