Nepal Related Articles in The New York Times

This week, The New York Times published some news, articles and Co-Ed about Nepal and Nepali, but following three articles attracted my attention.

On May 13 Nicholas Hirshon writes an insight story of Nepali salons workers on the title of “For Nepalese Salon Workers, a Cultural Hurdle to Overcome.” In this article, Mr. Hirshon writes about Nepali immigrants’ struggle, psychological feelings regarding their jobs and the success of some  hard worker Nepali (Especially on the nail salon business).

Here is the article link

For Nepalese Salon Workers, a Cultural Hurdle to Overcome.”

Nick also spoke about the article on HimaliSworharu’s “Open Mic” program. Here is the link to listen the conversation. Basically, we spoke about background of the article.

HimaliSworharu’s “Open Mic” 

On May 17 Freddie Wilkinson writes about “Mountaineer”, “Himalayan Experience”, and Mt. Everest on the title of “Don’t Climb Every Mountain.”

The article is  more about trekking safety. If you are interested about Nepal, environment, mountain and trekking you should read this article.

The New York Times often publish political, nature and cultural news of Nepal. However, I feel so proud and happy to read   arts related article this week.

On May 18Amy Yee writes “In Nepal, After Revolt,’ Art Was Changed Forever”

  1. Annapurna Circuit Trek

    This classic trek circles the entire Annapurna massif and in so doing offers a spectacular variety of people and landscapes, from lowland farming country to alpine meadows to the Tibet-like country on the northern slopes of the Himalaya.

    We start in the foothills at Besi Sahar and rise after 6 days to the settlement of Manang at 3500m where we acclimatise and enjoy the mountain views. We continue to ascend and on day 10 of the trek we cross the famous Thorung La, at 5416m, to Muktinath, an important pilgrimage site for Hindus and Buddhists.
    From here we descend into the Kali Gandaki, with Annapurna and Dhaulagiri towering on either side. En route back to Pokhara we pass through the many beautiful hill villages that populate this ancient trading route between Tibet and India. We also visit the hot springs at Tatopani, and climb up Poon Hill, above Ghorapani, to enjoy magnificent mountain views. Accommodation and food is provided in the local lodges. Transport to Besi Sahar is by private coach and this trek ends in Pokhara.
