New life in the Manang region of Nepal begins on the side of the road for these goats. They were born just before we came by. This region only opened to outsiders in the 1970s and a very bumpy road was only built through here a few years ago on the old trekking route. The Manang traders, known as Manangies, are renowned for their skills and are mainly Buddhist. Chortens, mani walls, prayer flags and monasteries are common, along with agriculture such as herds of yak, horses and of course goats like this…….#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetnepal #festival #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #ilovenepal #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel #nepal #manang #goats – from Instagram

Kathmandu moment…One of the things I love about travel, and having a long lens, is the ability to be the proverbial fly on the wall. Watching people and their interactions is a delight wherever you are if it's the streets of New York, Sydney, Delhi or Kathmandu. In this case however it would also have been nice to share the joke with the family that had them much amused or see the phones that have these guys so fascinated – cricket, football, Nepali music?…From the archives: April 2017….#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetnepal #festival #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #ilovenepal #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel #kathmandudurbarsquare #kathmandu #nepal #family – from Instagram

The digital age in Kagbeni's Kag Chode Thupten Samphen Ling Monastery. Kagbeni is at the bottom of the Muktinath Valley and at the entrance of Upper Mustang, an incredible location in Nepal with the arid mountains and barren, windswept landscapes surrounding the Kali Gandaki valley. This is also gateway to an independent kingdom closely tied in language and culture to Tibet. The monastery is reportedly almost 600 years old and still has a community of 30-40 monks, one whom showed me around and explained some of their lifestyle as we wandered the prayer areas as butter lamps burned and ancient texts sat where they had last been read. As I left younger monks played, washed clothes and peered at smartphones together outside. An incredible juxtaposition of the old and new mixing together….From the archives: Kagbeni, Nepal, April 2017….#guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetnepal #festival #wanderlust #explore #travelphotography #visitedplanet #ilovenepal #worldtraveller #traveleverywhere #exploretheworld #traveltheworld #opentheworld #instatravel #fromwhereyoudratherbe #wonderful_places #beyourbucketlist #betheadventure #lonelyplanettraveller #natgeotravel #igtravel #mustang #kagbeni #uppermustang #nepal #monks #buddhistmonks – from Instagram
