    Thanks for the photos. Sindhupalchok looks beautiful, but, unfortunately, you cannot eat or wear beautiful landscape.

      How true, how true! Nepalese countryside with its rolling hills, topped off by the snowy mountains behind them, and the hardy, open, tolerant and easy going rural people is simply beautiful!

Don't leave me hanging...say something....
