Nepali woman transplanting rice (Nepal)

Rice seedlings are grown first in nursery fields, then manually transplanted into puddled fields where the seeding are spaced out.­ Transplanting is very labor intensive, but requires less seeds.­

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.­
