Nepal

Draped against the highest peaks of the Himalaya, Nepal is where the ice-cold of the mountains meets the intense heat of the Indian plains. It's a land of yaks and yetis, stupas and Sherpas. The capital city Kathmandu is considered by some to be among the most beautiful cities in the world but it's also a polluted, noisy and exhausting place. MediaExplorer joins Radio Nepal at dawn and then captures both the serenity and chaos of commercial radio in Kathmandu.  Download the album (69MB ZIP File) ...
