Diaries of Nepal 11 // Nagdaha Village, Nepal

Nagdaha Village is an exquisite treasure hidden in the valley of Kathmandu. While visiting a special family here, I had a chance to capture bamboo swinging time. Each autumn during rice harvesting season the strongest, most fearless men in each village set out to build these bamboo swings for their village members and children to enjoy during Dasai and Tihar festivals by climbing to the top of a bamboo branch and fasting four heads together. The result is a marvelously fun, swing made in eastern fashion.
