View my other photos of Marpha.

Unlike other villages in the Kali Gandaki valley, Marpha has been "beautified" for the tourists trekking on the Annapurnas route.­

Stone houses are all nicely whitewashed.­ Many houses on the main street have been converted into shops selling souvenirs and supplies.­

It is pretty, but much less authentic than Kagbeni, another old village further up in the valley.­
