I had to visit Nepal once again for one day official trip. luckily, i had one free day to explore bit of Kathmandu. This time we were staying in city centre and went to photowalk exploring Thamel and associated areas which includes Basantpur and a Budhist temple, later we took Taxi to Boudhanath. I packed my sigma 50mm 1.4 ART and good old 17-40L along with 5dII for this trip.
