We start in the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, and have a number of days to explore the fascinating towns of the Kathmandu Valley. This is the historic religious, cultural and administrative centre of the country.
We explore the city of Kathmandu as well as Pashupati. Boudhanath and Patan. These towns are fascinating and have ancient squares, Buddhist stupas and palaces. The Kathmandu Valley is a thriving and bustling place and we will be able to photograph a number of historic buildings as well as some of the incredible people of Nepal.
From Kathmandu we move on to the ancient town of Bhaktapur to explore its own UNESCO listed Durbar Square. Leaving the more bustling towns, we head on to the atmospheric village of Nuwakot to have our first experience of rural Nepali life.
We then drive to the remote and well-preserved hilltop settlement of Bandipur, set on a high ridge to explore the preserved buildings and local countryside.
Proceeding on to Lake Begnas,we will have time to explore the lake as well as preparing for our mini-trek. This is a part of the so-called Royal Trek - and takes us along trekking paths, through some tiny villages where we will get the chance to interact with and photograph local villagers. The trek has stunning views and passes through a lot of interesting rural scenery.
We spend an overnight camping before trekking onwards to a vehicle, where we proceed to Pokhara. We have time to explore Pokhara before returning to Kathmandu.

Better Travel Photography was created by Steve Davey to celebrate the art of travel photography and to help people improve their travel photography skills and get more out of their travels. Some of the highlights of the site are image galleries, travel photography features and 501 Travel Photography Tips. This site also features Steve's exclusive range of travel photography tours.
The photo tour you are looking for is currently not scheduled. Steve Davey is a professional photographer and writer and so only leads three or four tours a year to balance with his professional and family life. You can see some images from the last time that this tour ran below. At the moment we have three tours available, but are busy working on more itineraries:
Impressions of Myanmar (Burma) Our first trip to the entrancing country of Myanmar (Burma) went so well that we couldn't wait to start planning a return. We still visit Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan and Inle Lake; but we will also be exploring the religious complex at Monywa and drive up into the Chin Hills to see the remarkable tattooed tribes.

Impressions of Ladakh 2017
We love Ladakh, and are really excited to be heading back again in 2017.
