Nepal - Manaslu Circuit Trek | Part I: Kathmandu Sightseeing
Part II: vimeo.com/75724476
Frankfurt - Airport, 18.02.2012
After a seemingly never ending odyssey, we finally sit on the flight to Bahrain, where we change planes and head for the capital of Nepal - Kathmandu. On our arrival in Kathmandu, we have not slept for 2 days.
We extended this period to three days by first betook ourselves to the traffic turmoil of the capital. Our goal was a street festival in the village Sidhhipur. After we've cought up on the well-deserved sleep, we went next morning to a friend whose craft is the casting of Buddhist statues. This type of craft is an overriding business in Nepal in addition to the tourism. So we visited the uncle of our friend Prakash, who showed us the production of widespread Tibetan prayer wheels.
In the evening, everyone gathered to celebrate both our arrival and our departure. Because already next day, we were to leave Kathmandu to set off to the himalayan mountains.
