Nuwakot was once the capital of the Kathmandu Valley in the days before the unification of Nepal.
Now Nuwakot is a sleepy village with an old Palace and a few Temples, perched on a hill top.

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.
