8 Months In Nepal-Stories And Reflections From Writer Martin Zinggl

Nepal is one of the world’s most diverse countries for traveller experiences and engagement. Bordered by the great Himalayan range boasting the highest mountains in the world including Mt. Everest, Nepal also offers a rich culture  with over 100 ethnic groups largely following Hinduism, Buddhism, or a combination of both. 

Martin Zinggl is an Austrian born journalist, photographer, writer and documentary film maker who for the last 8 months has been living in Nepal. He has just finished writing a book for Picus publishing,  http://www.picus.at/,  with an initial German language release about his many experiences while staying in the country. 

While living in Nepal Martin visited one of the busiest leprosy clinics in the world, The Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital. The story of Lalgadh is featured in latest book and can also be seen at: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/inpictures/2016/02/nepal-busiest-leprosy-hospital-160217072352121.html.
Martin also visited Chitwan National Park in Southern Nepal where he covered the annual World Elephant Polo Championship. You can see his story at: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/inpictures/2015/12/sport-fun-charity-elephant-polo-151216080444631.html
I spoke with Martin about the current situation for locals and travellers.
