Last fall, I was invited by Colder Films to visit and document Nepal’s recovery after their catastrophic earthquake. Upon arrival the checked luggage containing tripods, gimbal, slider, and glide-cam never made it to Nepal, leaving me with a backpack which thankfully contained the new Sony a7sii camera. I had to improvise and shoot everything hand held. I then attempted a newer method of shooting thousands of photos stitched together into a hyper-lapses, giving you a virtual “flow-motion" tour of Nepal. During ATTA’s AdventureWeek REBOUND NEPAL, the Great Himalaya Trails guided us to see the diversity Nepal has to offer. I was in awe wandering Kathmandu's monkey covered temples and witnessing ritual cremation ceremonies. Jumping on 16 planes it was a constant aerial adventure flying around Mount Everest through the Annapurna mountain region to northern Jomsom near the Tibetan border. On the last leg of our adventure we drove on rural roads through farmer villages all the way to Chitwan, “Heart of the Jungle”. One of my highlights was riding elephants on a safari spotting one-horned “unicorn" Indian rhinoceros who’s population has doubled from 2000, to almost 4000 today, thanks to efforts of the National Park. Nepal offers a truly diversified experience of rich culture and dramatic landscapes. This is the best time to visit. This is the time when your company is going to be valued. They will be grateful of your presence that you’ll really be able to connect with the culture and feel the genuine hospitality.
Nepal is open for business!
