Armchair Travelling – Nepal

Thankfully, Spring has now well and truly arrived here in Brittany; the blossom is falling from the trees and the roses are budding. Unfortunately, the covid-related travel restrictions remain in force. It is therefore necessary to take a non-essential journey and one that is further than the permitted 10km from my place of residence. However, there will be no steep fine for not carrying my attestation papers for this trip; another Wordless Wednesday virtual journey; today, a visit to the ‘roof of the world.’

Thank you taking this little trip! Nepal is a country that I have been fortunate enough to visit many times, these photographs were all taken before the terrible earthquake that caused so much devastation there almost exactly six years ago. As well as being warm-hearted and welcoming, the Nepalese are a most resilient people and continue the hard work of re-building their lives and their historic monuments, scarred forever by that day. If you have an opportunity, one day, to visit, do so!

    1. I am afraid not. I focus on Brittany but made these little excursions as a virtual escape from the grey weather and constant lockdown. There are folks who have written great posts about Nepal here on WP though πŸ™‚
      Stay well! πŸ™‚

  1. How utterly beautiful! That first picture is stunning for the unprepared eye! Thank you so much. I loved the French saying about birds building nests twig by twig.

    1. I am very pleased that you enjoyed the little trip! πŸ™‚ Alas, things are still too confused here to plan anything more than local jaunts but that will be fine – if the weather stays fine too πŸ˜‰

    1. It’s not as hectic as many cities in that part of the world and mostly quite manageable to get around. You can walk between downtown and the area that contains most of the tourist hotels and guest houses but taxis and rickshaws are relatively cheap and always available and, if time is not at a premium, you can always grab a shared one πŸ˜‰
      As you’d expect, there are lots of accommodation and dining options. The city is growing apace and some of the temple complexes that were “out of town” twenty years ago are now in the suburbs. One thing to watch for is that there is usually one price for locals and one for foreigners and this is particularly noticeable when you visit the historical monuments and towns.

    1. Ha, yes, you are right. It’s about 13deg here right now and feels more like winter than end May. Thankfully, summer is supposed to return later in the week with temps of 26deg. We shall see! πŸ˜‰
      Stay warm!! πŸ™‚

  3. I believe Tibet is referred to as the roof of the world, as it is a high plateau. In Nepal, the land rises, gradually at first and then steeply, to form most of the tallest Himalayan peaks, including Everest. On the other side lies China, or Tibet.

    1. Well, this was the world before covid. Goodness knows how difficult international travel will be in the future. 😦 In the meantime, thank you for taking this virtual trip with me! I am glad that you liked the views! πŸ™‚

      1. Oh yes, I know how it goes. Hopefully more people vaccinated will minimize the effects. The world has to open up again, not just for leisure reasons but to provide jobs for those involved with various industries who are now without income or unable to function.
