In 2012 I spent three months in Nepal. I spent a lot of my time filming and capturing what was around me. This video is a collection of the footage from that trip.

Most of the footage was shot with Govinda Nepal, but also some scenes with Prina Raj Joshi. Thanks to them both for their kind hospitality. Please check out the other documentary I worked on which was directed/produced by Govinda Nepal: vimeo.com/115894458

Herdai literally translates from Nepali as 'observing' or 'watching'.

The first scene is the yearly Kumari festival, which is celebrated by the Newar people of Kathmandu Valley.

The second scene was shot during a trek to Annapurna base camp. Thanks to Suman Regmi, who was my excellent guide for the trek. He kept me safe and also helped with the filming. If you are thinking of trekking in Nepal, I recommend getting in touch with him: gurkhatours.com

The third scene was shot in the Palpa district during the Dashain festival. For many in Nepal it is the most important festival of the year.

The final festival scene is the Hadigaun Jatra which is a little-known, endangered festival in Kathmandu Valley.
