whitewashed houses - main street - buddha shopping complex (nepal)

Marpha village, between Tatopani and Jomsom, on the Annapurnas road (Nepal)

I love the name of the small store: "Buddha Shopping Complex"!

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.­
