Description: Two local girls (Punam and Sarswoti Gurung) of Jagat, Lamjung savoring candy from California. We met them on our way to Chamje. I simply cherish the moment of their expressions of joy in their innocent faces.

It’s a common sight to see these local children swarming around trekkers asking for pen and sweet. A friend of mine who brought bag full of candies became very popular as ‘A Candy Girl’ on trail of Annapurna Round. It’s a thoughtful idea to take along some stationary and candies for children while going trek in Nepal, which opens doors to intermingle with locals and learn their lifestyle.
