Toni’s Nepal

On the 10th anniversary of Toni Hagen’s death, Heritage Gallery has revived his classic photo-exhibition on Nepal, one that was held 20 years ago and inaugurated by Late King Birendra.

When Hagen first arrived in Nepal in 1950, he was assigned merely to take aerial photographs of the country’s incredible terrain. By the time of his death in 2003, he was one of the most respected advocate of sustainable development in Nepal. Traversing across 14,000 kilometres of unchartered territory, the geologist in Hagen ultimately found Nepal’s “people more important than its rocks”. Hagen took hundreds of photographs in his 12 years of travelling on foot and they have become the only window to the Nepal of the past.

Runs till 31 March, Heritage Gallery, Toni Hagen House, Gachhen, Bhaktapur, (01)6613197

Garden of Dreams

Recently voted by Time magazine as one of top 24 hideaways in the world, the Garden of Dreams is a firm favourite among those who seek isolation in the middle of the metropolis. What was once a private garden set in the sprawling lawns across the former royal palace is now an oasis open to the public. Dine at the Kaiser Cafe, admire the artfully maintained flora, or grab a mat and lie down to read a book, so close yet blissfully far away from the chaos of Kathmandu.
