10 Best Places in Nepal to Photograph
Nepal, the land of Himalayas is blessed with many beautiful destinations to capture your travel moments in a frame. Yes, it is about travel photography and collecting moments with a camera. Whether you’re a shutterbug or not, there are no ways to stop yourself without taking shot after shots of the most beautiful Mount Everest (Sagarmatha) and Annapurna in Nepal. The real craziness for photography I found during the spectacular sunrise at the Fish Tail Mountain in Sarangkot. And this time while flying over Sagarmatha and Annapurna Himal with Buddha Air. Here I loved to list some best places in Nepal to photograph or enjoy photography in your way. So are you ready with your camera to capture especially the golden hour moments in Nepal? 😉
I’ve used several photography gears to take pictures during my tours in Nepal. And first time enjoyed experimenting with GoPro Camera (GoPro HERO4 Silver) apart from my Nikon Coolpix P600 and iPhone 6 Plus. 😀
After sunrise and before sunset moments are known as Golden Hour in Photography. And I love morning and enjoy capturing after sunrise moments whenever I get the chance. So if you’re in Nepal you definitely should not miss the opportunity to photograph the mountainous sunrise.
