Purweli Portraits

I had never been to the Eastern Part of Nepal ever in my life. Having been there for the first time, that too with a bunch of misfits of a friends from school was one heck of an experience. From the foggy Ilam to Muddy Hiley, Taplejung and the hot Itahari, the trip did help all the students from the Media Studies Department (Kathmandu University) to socialise and get to know each other.

The annual school trip has always been the event where everyone gets to know one other and this year was not different from the past. From the enthusiastic first years, barely present second years, reckless third years and lastly the relaxing fourth years, all the groups of students seemed to have enjoyed the trip to the fullest while also learning about the local elections which was about to be held in few weeks.


Terrific Taplejung

Terrific Taplejung

A gem in the eastern part of Nepal, Taplejung district is famous for it’s proximity around Mount Kanchanjanga, the third tallest peak in the world and other terrific spots like Pathibhara and the elongated stretch of Phungling bazar.

Also known for the cash crop of Aiselu ( I have know idea what it is called in English). the district produces over 4 tonnes of the herb in a year. One shouldn’t miss out on the local Mustange alcohol (trust me it is goood) when visiting Phungling bazar.
