The wide Kali Gandaki river bed between Jomsom and Kagbeni (Nepal)
In the background, the Nilgiri summit (Elevation: 7061 m / 23166 ft).
The Kali Gandaki river is sometimes flowing in very narrow, very steep gorges, and sometimes its bed is very wide, like a lake of gravel.
This is a very remote and beautiful region of Nepal, on the Annapurnas trekking route.
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.
