Nepal – Kathmandu

It was heartbreaking to see the devastation wreaked upon Kathmandu after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in April 2015. It killed over 8000 people and injured more than 21000 and hundreds of years of historical buildings were destroyed.

Thankfully our guide ‘Puspa’ who is based in Kathmandu who lead us across the Himalayas on the Annarpurna Trek was ok.

Many of the buildings and sites in and around Kathmandu that you will see in these snapshots and on my portfolio web site are now sadly no longer there.
