One of the iconic monuments of Kathmandu Valley, Rani Pokhari was also damaged by the 2015 A.D (2072 B.S ) earthquake. It took 5 years to renovate, and there were too many obstacles during the renovation.
It’s been more than 2 months we are in lockdown. I got the opportunity to visit Bhaktapur this time. Whenever I introduce Bhaktapur, I call it “Living History” as I see the traditional house and still old people wearing a traditional Newari dress.
It’s been almost 2 months that we are under lock. Few weeks back I got the opportunity to visit Bouddha, Swayambhu, and Patan Durbar Square and took some pictures of those heritage sites. This week I was able to visit Kathmandu durbar square.
Lock down a.k.a house arrest. It has been more than 50 days now. Many family have been financially struggling and more families will soon face financial hardships. Good thing is that there is still good supply of basic daily necessities like food and medicine.
Every year thousands of sadhus from different places come to pashupati nath temple in Kathmandu to celebrate Shiva Ratri. It’s one of the biggest festival of hindu where we worship Lord Shiva . This year pashupati nath temple premises are beautifully decorated .
It’s been a while I had any photography trip. Today 18th December 2019, I planned to go to ranikot, Bhaktapur with my friends. Did some research on google maps and thought it would be a perfect place to view mountain range during the sunrise.
Nepal reached the final of south asian games Men’s football final in the year 1999. It was held at Dasrath Stadium. We were so confident that Nepal will bag the goal medal. The atmosphere of the stadium so lovely. I still have a good memory of that final.
Nepal lost to Bangladesh 1-0 and the stadium was silence at the last moment. This year 2 players from that team were coaching the ladies and mens team. Both of them reach the final. Ladies team lost to India yesterday. It was coached by Hari Khadka. The men’s team is coached by Balgopal Maharjan.
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
