Nepali baby in mountain village near Manaslu, Gorka area, Nepal

World Tour 2013 - 2014 - day 185

 

I did a little 5 days trek in the low mountains nearby the Manaslu trek. So it was not touristic at all and I got by very nice village.

 

The second village I slept in was inhabited by mongolian type population. The ethic groups are very different from each other since you just move a view kilometers. It is many years they levee together not mixing at all, undoubtedly because of the Hindu culture which imply a kind of hierarchy between ethnic groups, like the cast system in India.

 

This baby is from the woman who holds the house I slept in. He is just a few weeks old.
