Nepal and the Himalaya

Here’s a slideshow with my favourite images from the land of Nepal. Scroll down to see as thumbnails.

I’ve only been to Nepal the once, and that was 30 odd years ago, so these are all from scanned 35mm slides.

We visited Kathmandu and Pokhara, and trekked to Poon Hill and back via the Annapurna Base Camp trail, then flew to Jomson and trekked up to Muktinath at the base of the Thorong La pass on the Annapurna Circuit.

I imagine the towns and villages have changed since then – I know there are roads reaching in to some of the areas that could only be reached on foot when I was there – but I doubt the mountains are much different.  Here are a few of the pictures anyway.

Many of these images may be purchased and downloaded as royalty-free stock photographs;  if you click on the pictures below, you will see a link at the bottom left which directs you to the site from which the  image is available – or to see them all, click here – My Nepal Portfolio – on iStock. A few are available as Rights-Managed only in my Alamy Archives.
