A Hindu cremation in Northern Nepal. These cremations take place by the side of a holy river. The ashes are then tipped into the river.

I was on a bridge descretely using a long lens, so as not to intrude.

At another time during the trip, we came across a wake being held in a house. We were invited in to view the deceased.

I like the fact that you have stayed back, allowed space, this is respectful and not intrusive. I find the bowed heads bottom right particularly moving.
