Last December I approached A1 if they could help visit places where I could see local shamanistic culture as I found a reference to shamanism on their website. It turned out that the owner had a good idea of local festivals and could arrange for me to see a shaman festival not too far away from Kathmandu. It turned out better than I expected and I experienced a whole evening, night and morning of drumming and dancing by dozens of local Tamang shamans. There were hundreds of people attending the event, but not a single tourist. Perfect for my photography!
