Most people may deem Nepal to be dirty, polluted, uncivilised, a nation with no structure or balance. However, amidst all the chaos there lies a nation of natural beauty. A nation which does not need tall sky scrapers to make people gasp, a nation which does not need modern day facilities, a nation which is still far behind yet industrialising rapidly. Kathmandu maybe enjoyed by some and detested by others but the real beauty lies in the hills and southern plains of the country.

Writing about the experiences Ive witnessed will more or less fail to capture your imagination however if i had the power to transfer my memory to you then you aswell would be awe-struck by the beauty that lies far away. Going to the hills where there was minimal electricity, water and sanitation facilities is definitely a daunting experience yet the surroundings and atmosphere of the societies which populate the area will make every moment worthwhile. Thousands of images were captured on my camera, a trademark camera known to be used by a large majority of Japanese tourists. Nonetheless, even the camera has failed to capture the true essence of Nepal. In reality, the grass is so much greener, the mud is highly rich in colour and the smiles on the peoples faces glistened with pride.

Being in Nepal not only fascinated me yet it also emphasised my purpose of being in the UK. My sole aim is to better myself, achieve more and take it back home one day. The nation is crying desperately for people to help. Whether this will be by frequent visits, volunteering or working, it is in our hands; the Nepal lovers and the Nepalese.
