Its about 15 km from Pokhara to Begnas Lake and less than 5 km from Begnas to Rupa Lake. There are buses and taxis but I decided to cover that distance on foot.
I never reached Rupa Tal. There were too many friendly and smiling local people on the way, all more than happy to pose for photos
More in WS.

It sometimes happens that unexpected nice encounters are more important than reaching a certain goal. It was certainly worth losing some time for this portrait. She looks genuinely happy to pose for your camera, and she dressed well for a colour photo, from tip to toes. The girl in the WS looks very nice too. They are both well dressed, even disregarding the colours. Things have happened since the early 70's, regarding style as well as quality of clothes.

another wonderful travel story shared.
I really like this woman's outfit, the only thing which seems to be out of place are her sandles :)
really like her necklace, earings, and choice of head wear.
lovely smile and her eyes are completely fixed onto you.
and how could resist the little girl in the ws! fond memories i'm sure. cheers

Even if it won't 'sell' like a postcard photo, your most faithful visitors will find it. It is a simple, candid picture with a nice smile. Her tooth are beautiful!

QU'elle est jolie cette jeune fille qui se pręte au portrait avec le plus grand des sourires. Męme ses yeux pétillent de joie. La pose est surprenante mais agréable.

Bardzo sympatyczny i optymistyczny portret dziewczyny, az sie chce "odsmiechnac" do niej, piekne zdjecie

This is a rather straightforward, but really succesful portrait. How can I not love this lady's kind smile? Great natural, soft colours too.

What a gorgeous, happy portrait. I'd love to know the joke you told her! Who needs lakes and landscapes when there are shots like this to make?

The young woman has a contagious smile. How could one not respond with a smile? The composition superb. When I was young, I remember a series on television about New York City called the "Naked City." It always started with the refrain, "There are seven million stories." Looking at this girl with her engaging demeanour I could rephrase the that TV-show's opening, "There are seven billion stories."

You posted a very nice portrait, it is original in postur, but the smile of the girl makes this picture very special, congrat.

Imho, the easiest way to bring emotion into a picture is through the facial expression as depicted and even the eyes seem to be smiling! Such a joy to sit back and admire, I can understand your fascination fully. A pleasure to view. Congrats.

Ciao dear Kasia
What a great shot, a really heart-warming, intimate photo. You achieved a brilliant connection with your beautiful subject, the direct eye-contact is superb. Stunning skin tones, definition and colour. I love everything about this shot.
Congratulations, thanks for sharing

Good portrait shot of the smiling squatting woman. I like the soft flattering light and the shallow dof that isolates and emphasises the fg subject. Tfs!

Obejrzałem ten portret (sytuacyjny) raz, potem drugi, a (teraz) za trzecim razem, postanowiłem skomentować. Dlaczego w taki sposób? Okazało się, że w mniejszym formacie uśmiech i radość "modelki" wychodzi na pierwszy plan i choć modelka nie wydaje się idealna, to przekazałaś emocje oraz naturalność jej osoby, i to się liczy.
