Nepal - Ghorapani - Himalayan tea house curtain.
A young Nepali man peers out from a curtain to talk to an unseen neighbour in a remote village near Ulleri, in the Himalayan foothills, Nepal. It is a colourful (colorful) scene as the curtain fabric is a striking blue with mauve leaf motifs drawn in but it is a natural opposite colour against the badly-painted yellow wooden walls of his shack. Villages such as these partly-depend on the agriculture of rice-growing and also on the passing tourist trade. Western trekkers walk through these tiny communities on their way up the series of climbing trails of the Annapurna Conservation Sanctuary circuit, a sometimes rigorous walk from the low hills of Pokhara to the higher altitudes of Annapurna, the (26,000 feet (8,000 metre) peak. Tea houses are dotted along the trail offering lodging, refreshments and basic, but delicious food to the weary traveller.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
