An illustrated talk by Stephen Lovell – date to be announced
Nepal, long established as the gateway to the Himalayas and Everest, is one of the poorest countries in the World with its population of 30 million sandwiched between India and China’s teeming millions.
In the north it borders Tibet with spectacular Himalayan scenery and some of the Planet’s highest peaks.
From the cool sparkling air of the north to the hot lowland areas of the Terai bordering India in the south it is an endless fusion of people, temples, religions, trading and various modes of transport. Wildlife abounds, with mighty Asian Elephants, one-horned Indian Rhinos and the possibility of a Tiger. Nepal really is a kaleidoscope of colour and contrast with its breath-taking beauty. There are also many social challenges facing the Country.
Stephen, with his comprehensive photographic coverage of the Country, will feature the magnificent scenery, the wildlife and the people, their culture and interesting architecture and the impact of the recent devastating earthquake.
