Stupa at Khumjung

Three photos of a Stupa in Khumjung taken from different directions and over five years. Photos taken in December 2013, the end of September 2015, two earthquakes later and in September 2018.

There is a beautiful mani wall along the walk in from Namche Bazaar.

I assume the cracks are from the second earthquake on May 12 2015. The small boy in the photo has his back pack on and had just come out from the Edmund Hillary School, the biggest school in the Khumjung.

And finally in September 2018 the repaired stupa in Khumjung but the eyes and face are not finished in this photo. The open space in front of the stupa to the right of the mani wall is the play area for the Sir Edmund Hillary School. The wall around the school has been repaired as well. That is me walking in with the red jacket and our porter guide on my left. As for most of the photos the Trainer (my husband) was taking the photo.

  1. Very interesting comparison, Louise. Forces of nature. Glad there was no loss of life there. Seeing your photos of the region always wake the lust in me to go back to Nepal. It’s been too long! Marcus
