Sadhus in Nepal

A visit to an open air crematorium may not be everyone's idea of a holiday activity but it's a great place to meet sadhus. Sadhus are holy men who have who have chosen to live lives apart from or on the edges of society to focus on their own spiritual practices.

These sadhus were at the cremation ghats at the Pashupatinath temple on the banks of the Bagmati river in Kathmandu.
