Travelling Nepal

Busy streets and discovering secret temples.... Kathmandu is a constant source of surprise.
Travelling from Kathmandu to Pokhara, we get first glimpses of snow capped Annapurna Ranges..
Trekking on the Goonapani cirtcuit for 5 days, we had many glimpses again of snow capped mountains, and opportunities to meditate on the amazing glory of this country. 

Visiting the significant sights around Pokhara... the World Peace Pogoda is particularly outstanding. They ask for visitors to respect the silence as we walk around the Stuppa. I found this amazingly powerful.

Travelling brings with it opportunities to learn more about yourself, the people you travel with, and the host country. Today, we have changed our travel plans because we've been invited to join our hosts at their family home to celebrate the Hindu festival of Dashain. I'll post more about that when I know more about it...

The World Peace Pagoda takes my breath away, as do some of those views. How exciting to be there and see this all in person.
