Some 'Monkey Poses' You May Want to Try

Have you ever been at Pashupatinath in Kathmandu, Nepal? You would not be allowed to go into all the temples unless you are a Hindu. Only Hindus are allowed to enter inside the main temple of Pashupatinath where a Shiva's Nandi bull can be seen from the rear.

If you are not a Hindu, you can still visit around Pashupatinath area and have fun. Monkeys around Pashupatinath are enough to entertain you. Pashupatinath area is a major habitat of monkeys in Kathmandu valley. Many old monkeys are lazy but baby monkeys are active.

Due to human contact, monkeys act like a human at Pasupatinath. They eat like a human. They walk like a human. And they sometimes behave like a human. They like to eat junk foods than their natural food. They are interested eating biscuits, noodles, and cold drinks.

If you are planning to go there, don't tease monkeys. They will become aggressive. They can bite you. They steal food, shiny objects and will take things from your hand or bag. Beware!

I have captured some 'Monkey Poses' around Pashupatinath area. Watch and enjoy. You can try those 'Monkey Poses'. But don't try to have any monkey business
