Back to Nepal, back to summer. At this time of the year the weather here is one of the nicest: no rains, no heat, just pleasantly warm and sunny. Simply perfect for a day out on the bank of a lake. About the Serpent Lake I found out recently, the main thing that attracted me instantly was availability of boating. Actually it is the only place near Kathmandu that provides such facility.
Perhaps a maxi skirt is not the best choice for a paddle boat but I really didn't feel like wearing pants. So, here I am again in my favourite navy blue maxi skirt. With a different top however.
The place was peaceful and beautiful. The lake's name comes from the belief that a mythical female serpent (Nag) lives here. There is a temple and a sculpture on the bank of the lake both dedicated to the creature.
There were also two buildings of unknown purpose, I guess they simply serve as shelters from sun and rain. These unremarkable buildings were decorated with quite remarkable murals.
Besides the curious but shy young gentleman from the photo above I got friendly with this cute female goat.
Both maxi skirt and stripy top - Next
It was a nice day out.
Hope you're having a great weekend!
