I spent 5 days traveling in Nepal in March 2018 prior to starting a global health elective in South India

Fishtail mountain (Machapuchare)
Located along the southern border of Nepal, bordering India.
Traditional Nepali fishing boats in the Rapti River, made out of a straw-like material from a tree found in the Chitwan jungle. To fish in the river you need a special license and only members of a special caste have this license.
Jeep rides into the forest always come with at least 1 safari guide to spot animals and tell you about the place, a separate driver, and a representative from the Nepali army to make sure the jeep is in compliance with anti-poaching regulation.
Fresh tiger footprints (didn't get to spot who they belonged to though...)
A 30-year-old elephant and her caretaker
Nepalis bringing a goat to be sacrificed at a temple located within the Chitwan jungle in honor of a Hindu holiday.
From Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, I took a mountain flight on a small propeller plane (sat around 60 passengers) which flew out to Everest along the Mahalangur Himalayan range. In this shot, Everest is the pyramidal shaped peak in the top left, the highest peak in the photo (obviously!)
