Woman sitting in a Pati, in Bhaktapur (Nepal)

In Nepali language, those ubiquitous communal platforms with a roof, where people can sit and rest, are called "Pati".­

In the old city of Bhaktapur (Nepal), people live the same traditional way they were living hundreds years ago.­ Except for a few motorcycles and electric wires, nothing has changed for centuries.­

Bhaktapur is one of the Royal Cities of Nepal, located about 10 Km East of Kathmandu.­ For more info about Bhaktapur, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Bhaktapur.

Nepal 247 photos

Photos taken during a motorcycle trip with a friend in Nepal in March 2013.­

This includes a trip up the Kali Gandaki valley to the Annapurnas and the Lower Mustang region, with its beautiful Himalayan landscapes.­

Those photos were taken one year before the April 2014 earthquake that killed many and caused major damage in central Nepal.­

Many of the buildings and temples on those photos have been damaged or destroyed by the 2014 quake, especially the shaky brick houses in Bhaktapur.­
