NEPAL IN THE FOREIGN PRESS. Mardi Khola is near Pokhara. Click on the pic to enlarge. Here’s a song from Nepathya: Mardi khola ghumdai aaye hai saili maili melai ma

And a bridge over Mardi Khola:

  1. awesome pic!!!!!!!!jst aglimps of 1 of d wonders of Nepal:)

    1. Haha… I don’t think it was Nepathya who sang that (in female voice). The uploader must have messed up with the voice and the photos. But Nepathya also may have done this song.

  2. Amazing photography! I wonder how the photographer took the photo? You don’t know when you will be able to see the Milky way. You have to attach the right lens, adjust settings, and mount the camera in tripod and wait agonizingly for the appearance.
