Kathmandu Animals

There are a large number of animals in Kathmandu, most of which seem to be ownerless. This is especially true of the monkeys – there aren’t as many of these as the street dogs, however they make their presence felt by their thieving and squabbling around Thapithali Chowk.

On the more sedate side of things, the three cats that reside at Ting’s are probably the most fortunate and pampered in the city.

The Bagmati river, perpetually choked with rubbish, provides a veritable poisonous buffet for the sacred cows strolling around the city. There is a dairy on the north side of Thamel, and I really really hope their animals don’t roam this far.

I really hope these guys aren't the source of my yoghurt.
