Experience and photograph the land of the highest mountains on earth, of gods and legends. There are probably only a few countries on earth that exude such a magical attraction and provide as many photo opportunities as this natural and culturally rich Hindu state. As a special treat, we will be in Kathmandu when the world’s most colorful cultural spectacle takes place – the Holi Festival.
A truly mystical country
Nepal offers rich diversity in culture, nature, religion and architecture, and thus countless breathtaking photo opportunities. The capital, Kathmandu, is an El Dorado for street, reportage, portrait and architectural photography. And the surrounding area has its own lures, with wild monkeys, awe-inspiring mountain panoramas, remote monasteries and villages that seem to be apart from time. Our travel date offers a very special highlight – we will be there for the spectacular Holi Festival!
On top of all this comes the world-famous hospitality of the Nepalese, who like to present themselves as a little camera-shy. You will have the opportunity to explore the country off the tourist track and to come home with memories and pictures you'll cherish for life.
The trip will be led by photo instructor and filmmaker Daniel von Rüdiger and his longtime Nepalese colleague and local guide Sunil Pokera. With this team, you'll have an unbeatable combination of professional photography expertise and unique local insights and know-how about the country and people. On this trip, you'll receive some theoretical instruction, but more importantly, you'll have plenty of room to experiment and practice under the guidance of an expert. We will even start the selection and editing process while we are still on vacation, so you'll come back with an impressive and curated selection of photos and videos.
Discover Nepal through your lens
Take your photography skills to the next level while getting to know a magical land. We will throw ourselves into the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu – the paradise for street photography. We will visit temples and stupas and look for unusual architectural perspectives. We will freeze the color dust of the Holi festival in front of the temple backdrop in Katmandu in pictures and look into many smiling faces. We will capture the light over the Himalayas in landscape shots in the morning hour and get an insight into private Nepal away from tourist highlights. We visit a Nepalese school, watch carpet weavers at work and hike to a remote monastery.
We will be accommodated in hotels that are of a very high standard by Nepalese standards. All hotels offer us enough space to look at the photos and have a special charm. Single and double rooms are available everywhere. Please indicate if you would like to be accommodated as a couple.
