Nepal | photoreport
Frankly, I do not like Asia, like all other countries in which cities are indiscriminately stumbles slums and huge number of people, the process of fertility which are not under control. In Nepal, a birth is not so bad, but the human condition is absolutely such pleasant.
Nepal has always been associated Himalayas, probably a long time ago, I saw a lot of photos of these places, and many people know that in its territory, to be exact - on the border with China, is the famous Mount Everest (Chomolungma). Nepali name Sagarmatha pronounced. Unfortunately, summer in Nepal is very high clouds and the whole town were in a fog, so the Himalayas on the horizon can not be seen. Season begins in the fall.
The main occupation for tourists - trekking to the foot of Everest. It should be fed about 5 days. Frightened that Kathmandu is impossible to look for 2-3 days, but it's not true. Visiting the main places and having traveled to cities such as Bahtapur and Nagarkot, you realize that they are not really all that different. Unreal amount of churches in every city, Hindu symbols at every turn - that's all you'll see. Some people love it.
Here's what Kathmandu, Thamel tourist district.
One of the main attractions of Kathmandu - Pashupatinath Hindu temple complex. Already at the entrance seemed to him a monkey. Here they are a little strange, but why? - Look no further.
At the entrance of buying a ticket and you can roam anywhere, except those places where smoking is not held Hindus. Such places little.
Constantly cling and try to impose themselves local guides (show promise secret routes itp).
To this place to see photos of public cremation people. Bonfires are lit around the clock here. Relatives sit and look right. The air smells of fried meat. full plate
Around full of masked people. When you see pictures on the Internet, it seems that Nepal is inhabited by such people, but really - it's the usual nashtukaturennye men who dress up for the money to be photographed with the people in the rest of Nepal is like a country inhabited by Hindus, but not India.
Not a pretty sight. feet
Bit myself. It might seem that he talks about something eternal, but while taking pictures of my uncle told me that he is here and it is the coolest TV shoot was coming from Russia. amusingly
After burning is complete, the ashes thrown into the river. It empties into the Indian River Ganges. Everything would be fine, if the children do not swim in this river, as seen in the photo below.
Moreover, monkeys, which we saw earlier, eats the remnants of what remains of the person after cremation.
Some more pictures of Kathmandu. Basic hotel infrastructure is located in Thamel, here and endless markets and souvenir shops with restaurants.
Now we need to see Everest. Just so not to get close to him, so there is Mountain Flight 20-seater aircraft, which flies as close as possible.
6.30am. Drive up on the bus to the plane and then, fit woman and says, "Unfortunately, Everest is hidden behind the clouds, but all other mountains are clearly visible. You want to fly? All refused and discharged tickets for tomorrow."
If so, take a walk through Kathmandu again. It is also a local landmark, unfortunately I do not remember what it's called, but that is not important.
Now, come the next day. The weather is good, within sight of Mount Everest. Fly by Simrik Airlines. There are other companies, such as Buddha Air itp, but only Simrik you will come to the cockpit, and indeed a small plane in such a case is much more desirable than great.
Once climbed above the clouds Kathmandu, immediately showed peaks of the Himalayas.
Walks through the cabin stewardess guide, which tells the story of mountain peaks and displays them on the mini-map, which is distributed to all before the flight. The main objective of this girl - show tourists the most important mountain in the world - Mount Everest
This is a nearby town - Bahtapur. Nothing remarkable in not noticed: many temples and various symbols. The main square ticket surcharge - 1500 rupees.
In Nepal, apparently very dusty, unnecessarily in cafes and restaurants serve glasses first wiping it with a towel.
Since at that time held the World Cup in Brazil - we see the flags of different countries. It is here that we see - Argentine flag.
Here Nagarkot. If there were no clouds, it would open up beautiful views, and now - nothing special - or rather, nothing at all!
Tower, which is dotted with pointers to many corners of Nagarkot is a structure, not more than 4-5 meters in height and is only useful for panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, which are now in the clouds.
Generally, Nepal is a beautiful country, but the impression that it creates on the internet is not true. Everything is much easier
