After two days in Georges Town, Penang, I wanted a little more freshness and greenery.
So I went to the south, in Cameron Highlands five hours away from Penang by bus.
The road is very curvy in the last hour and a half, but the hills of Cameron Highlands with a temperature of only 23 °C compared to 32 °C in the rest of Malaysia, deserve all the trouble.
My trip to Nepal ends in the city of Patan, located in the Kathmandu Valley. Patan is charming with its temples in Durban Square and its red brick houses. And the atmosphere is a little quieter than Kathmandu.
Then I had the chance to meet the Kumari, a young pre-pubescent girl worshiped as a goddess.
Boudhanath is one of the most famous Buddhist shrines in Nepal. Despite the fact that its dome has been destroyed by the earthquake in April, it remains an important place of pilgrimage for Nepalese.
As for the “Monkey Temple”, it is one of the oldest temple in Kathmandu. Monkeys occupy the place, and to access to the temple there are 365 steps to climb, but once arrived the view on Kathmandu is just awesome.
Immersion in Thamel, the tourist district of Kathmandu with a mix of trekking shops, travel agencies, spas, restaurants, hotels and small shops. I stayed there the first three days of my trip to Nepal. Let’s have a look at this district!
