Nepal – Shivapuri Hill

Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park

What do you prefer, white mountains or green hills? I think all of them are gorgeous! But in hills like these, if you’re (un-)lucky you may meet tigers, leopards, or just deers… 馃榾

O艣nie偶one g贸ry czy zielone wzg贸rza – co wzbudza wi臋kszy u艣miech na Twej twarzy? Osobi艣cie uwa偶am, 偶e g贸ry w ka偶dej postaci s膮 przepi臋kne. Jednak spaceruj膮c po wzg贸rzach jak te na zdj臋ciu, trzeba si臋 liczy膰 z niezerowym prawdopodobie艅stwem spotkania tygrysa, lamparta, albo po prostu jelenia… 馃榾

Nepal – Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park

If you stay for a few days in Kathmandu, it’s a good idea to visit Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park or other hills around the Kathmandu valley. Even they’re higher than 2000 m above the sea level, people call them just “hills”. Isn’t it funny? 馃檪

Je偶eli zaplanujecie d艂u偶szy pobyt w Katmandu, warto wybra膰 si臋 na wycieczki do parku narodowego Shivapuri Nagarjun albo po innych okolicznych wzg贸rzach. Zabawne, 偶e ludzie nazywaj膮 je “wzg贸rzami” – s膮 one przecie偶 po艂o偶one na wysoko艣ci ponad 2000 m n.p.m., wi臋c to ju偶 ca艂kiem “konkretne” g贸rki. 馃檪

Nepal – High mountains

Himalaya mountains
Himalaya mountains

Many people go to Nepal, only because it’s a starting point for hiking in high mountains. There are beautiful tracks, but I’d like to say to almost everyone “don’t go to Mt. Everest”. If you’re a passione mountaineer, go there; but if you’re a random person who hardly ever climbed mountain tops don’t try to go to Mt. Everest only because you want to say “I climbed Mt. Everest”.

During my flight to Kathmandu, I met a man who proudly told me that he’s going to climb Mt. Everest. So I got curious and asked about other mountains he climbed, because I thought it’s his passion. Surprisingly he answered that he didn’t climb any mountains so far and that he is going to hike only to the base camp of Mt. Everest…

________________________________________________________________

Wiele os贸b leci do Nepalu tylko dlatego, 偶eby rozpocz膮膰 tam w臋dr贸wk臋 w Himalaje. Oczywi艣cie te najwy偶sze g贸ry oferuj膮 wiele tras o r贸偶nym poziomie zaawansowania. Jednak ja cz臋sto chcia艂abym wielu ludziom powiedzie膰, 偶eby nie “wybierali si臋 na Everest”! Je偶eli g贸ry i wysokog贸rska wspinaczka s膮 Twoj膮 pasj膮 to zdecydowanie te s艂owa nie s膮 skierowane do Ciebie! Uwa偶am to za do艣膰 偶a艂osne, 偶e najwy偶sza g贸ra 艣wiata jest zat艂oczona lud藕mi “prawie 偶e tam wnoszonymi”, tylko po to aby mogli powiedzie膰, 偶e “zdobyli Everest”.

Podczas mojego lotu do Katmandu, siedz膮cy obok mnie m臋偶czyzna dumnie mi powiedzia艂, 偶e wybiera si臋聽na Everest. Rozmawiali艣my chwil臋, zaciekawi艂am si臋 i zacz臋艂am zadawa膰 pytania jakie inne szczyty zdoby艂 itp. Okaza艂o si臋, 偶e w og贸le si臋 nie wspina, a wybiera si臋 tylko do “base camp” – pierwszego obozu na trasie do Mount Everest…

In Nepal, men often wear a hat called Dhaka topi or Nepali topi.

M臋偶czy藕ni w Nepalu cz臋sto nosz膮 typowe czapeczki nazywane Dhaka topi lub Nepali topi (niestety nie wiem jak t臋 nazw臋 przet艂umaczy膰 na j臋zyk polski – po prostu zobaczcie zdj臋cie 馃檪 ).

Nepal – Pigeons

There are many pigeons in old city centers in Nepal, and unfortunately people often feed them. Old buildings don’t like their digested remains…

________________________________________________________________

Historyczne centra miast w Nepalu s膮 cz臋sto pe艂ne go艂臋bi. Niestety ludzie karmi膮 je, a to nie “uszcz臋艣liwia” starych, zabytkowych budynk贸w…

Today I show you the Durbar Square in Patan. It was full of temples and shrines, with interesting carvings, however the earthquake caused severe damage to this ancient site…

________________________________________________________________

Dzisiaj, kolejne zdj臋cie placu Durbar, ale tym razem z Patan. Gdy tam by艂am, w pa藕dzierniku 2014 roku, plac by艂 wype艂niony 艣wi膮tyniami ozdobionymi pi臋knymi rze藕bami. Niestety, trz臋sienie ziemi uszkodzi艂o tutaj wiele budynk贸w…

Nepal – Doors

Today, you can see a bigger collection of doors. Someone may say it’s nothing special, but I like it, and for sure it’s not the last picture of doors on my blog.

While traveling in Nepal, you can often find beautiful old doors and old windows.

How do you like this photo? Do you also like taking pictures of doors and windows?

________________________________________________________________

I kolejne zdj臋cie drzwi, tak偶e wykonane w Patan, ale tym razem jest to wi臋ksza kolekcja. Mo偶e to nic specjalnego, ale mam sentyment do starych drzwi i okien, wi臋c jeszcze zagoszcz膮 one na moim blogu.

Jak Wam si臋 podoba to zdj臋cie? Czy te偶 lubicie fotografowa膰 drzwi i okna?

Today, I want to show you a photo from the “city of fine arts”, that’s the other name of Patan. Probably, it’s not the most representative picture of this nice town, but many doors got my attention that day of sightseeing.

Dzisiaj, chcia艂am Wam pokaza膰 pierwsze zdj臋cie z uroczej miejscowo艣ci Patan. Z pewno艣ci膮, moje zdj臋cie nie przedstawia najs艂ynniejszego miejsca w Patan, ale tego dnia wiele drzwi przyku艂o moj膮 uwag臋.

Nepal – Monkey Temple

Swayambhunath complex in Kathmandu is also known as the Monkey Temple, because of holy monkeys living there. In the today’s picture, you can see a baby monkey that I met in this temple.

Zesp贸艂 艣wi膮ty艅 Swayambhunath w Katmandu nazywany jest 艢wi膮tyni膮 Ma艂p. Nazwa ta zwi膮zana jest ze “艣wi臋tymi ma艂pami” kt贸re zamieszkuj膮 艣wi膮tynie. Dzisiejsze zdj臋cie przedstawia jedn膮 ze spotkanych ma艂pek.

Nepal – Cremation

Cremation in Pashupatinath temple, Kathmandu
Cremation in Pashupatinath temple, Kathmandu

In the Pashupatinath temple, in Kathmandu, it’s possible to see cremations at the Bagmati River.
People clean dead ones, and then burn bodies, after that ashes are given into the river, because this river is connected with the Ganges river.

It was interesting to observe it, but somehow didn’t feel right to be there and take photos…

________________________________________________________________

W 艣wi膮tyni Pashupatinath w Katmandu mo偶na zobaczy膰 proces kremacji odbywaj膮cy si臋 nad rzek膮 Bagmati. Cia艂a zmar艂ych s膮 czyszczone, palone, a prochy wrzucane do rzeki. Ta rzeka jest szczeg贸lnie wa偶na, poniewa偶 艂膮czy si臋 z Gangesem.

Musz臋 przyzna膰, 偶e to ciekawe do艣wiadczenie m贸c obserwowa膰 ca艂膮 ceremoni臋, jednak ca艂y czas mia艂am wra偶enie, 偶e nie powinno mnie tam by膰, a tym bardziej robienie zdj臋膰 powinno by膰 zabronione…
