DSC06465 - Whitewashed Traditional Stones Houses on Main Street - Marpha Village - Himalayas (Nepal)

Marpha village, between Tatopani and Jomsom, on the Annapurnas road (Nepal)

 

View my other photos of Marpha.

 

Unlike other villages in the Kali Gandaki valley, Marpha has been "beautified" for the tourists trekking on the Annapurnas route.

 

Stone houses are all nicely whitewashed. Many houses on the main street have been converted into shops selling souvenirs and supplies.

 

It is pretty, but much less authentic than Kagbeni, another old village further up in the valley.
