April 2010. Kagbeni, Nepal.
Sadhu’s, also known as Holly Men, are those who decided to give up their regular life and most of their possessions and dedicated all their time to achieving the final Hindu goal of life – liberation. They are very characteristic, wearing red and orange clothing, long beards and sometimes painting their faces. All of them happily pose for photos. Unfortunately majority expects the money. This one however was happy with a smile in return for a photo.
