In Nepal, internationally renowned photographer Richard I'Anson presents a vibrant photographic portrait of this fascinating Himalayan country.
Nepal first established itself as a travelers' mecca in the 1960s, when Kathmandu became an important stopover on the Asian overland route. It has been captivating visitors ever since with its impossibly picturesque villages, soaring snow-covered mountains, grand monuments, and ancient towns whose narrow streets are dotted with temples, tiny shrines and priceless art.
Since his first visit in 1986, I'Anson has returned to Nepal every year to photograph people and places all over the country, from the crowded streets of old Kathmandu to remote mountain passes and high Himalayan viewpoints.
For Nepal he has selected more than 400 stunning photographs covering five regions that always capture the imagination of visitors. Nepal celebrates a unique, ethnically diverse culture living amid incredible natural and urban environments - a heady mix that also includes accessible wildlife, outrageously colorful festivals, an artistic heritage spanning hundreds of years, and a welcoming people who inspire so many traveler to return again and again.
