Discover the amazing NEPAL

Nepal is a land full of centuries-old culture, customs and gestures, influenced by the high altitudes in the Himalayas and the prevalence of Hinduism and Buddhism religion.

The land of yaks, temples, stupas, beautiful countryside, prayers flags and prayer wheels, amazing mountains and with a strong influence of diverse people from neighboring countries such as India and Tibet.

Travel to Nepal through my lensens and get the taste of this amazing country and friendly people, and if you haven't yet, include Nepal in your bucket list.

I shot everything with my Canon 70D using a Canon 18-135mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS STM lense as it is my go-to lens for landscape, city and street photojournalism.

      Thanks Angelica for your visit and comment. The lens I use makes perfect because I found out I can carry less lenses during my trips, as this one is good for photojournalism, distance with depth of a field, people and building close ups…I am a big fan as it makes my life easier 🙂
