Our journey started in the historic Kathmandu Valley, where we explored the incredible Durbar Square, the town of Patan, the Bodhnath Stupa and the Hindu Temple at Pashputinath before ending up duelling with monkeys at the Swayambhunath Stupa.

We then moved on to the atmospheric town of Bhaktapur, before driving through stunning scenery to the mountain town of Nuwakot and then Bandipur.

After our time in these towns, we then drove to Begnas Lake near to the town of Pokhara, where we were able to enjoy an overnight trek through verdant farmland in the middle of harvest time, before finishing off at the lakeside town of Pokhara.

The terrible earthquake that struck Nepal happened just a few months after our visit. Many of the places we photographed are now destroyed or damaged and most of the people will have had their lives affected in some way. This gallery though will show you some of the beauty of the country and also a small look at some of the incredible historical buildings and temples that can be seen all over.
