Linda is a monsoon traveller in Nepal with over 15 trips during the last 18 years, the most recent in August 2015. Everytime she comes, she captures amazing pictures of the monsoon, the one time of the year which people rarely think of travelling to Nepal, but when Nepal is at its peak in terms of colours. This year, her trip has even more relevance as it happened post-quake, and she did the Mardi Himal Trek with Ecotour.
Her pictures capture the essence of the country during the monsoon – the lushness, the flowers, the mystical clouds and the freshness. Her photographs have been generously donated to the Nepal Tourism Board and the tourism industry at large.
Linda is a professor of Geology in Kuwait
