Photo of the week: Monkey temple in Kathmandu

It’s lunchtime for the monkeys at Swayambhunath in Kathmandu. Every day, 100s of them gather to have a chat with their monkey friends at the temple appropriately nicknamed “Monkey Temple”.  These holy monkeys who live in the northwest part of the temple get treated to a daily lunch by locals and devotees. But watch out – they’re only friendly until you try to share their treats!

If you’re lucky enough to be in Nepal over the holidays, there’s no shortage of monkey business you can get up to! In Nepal, they celebrate New Year’s in 7 different ways!
