WPC: Monkey’n Around (Atop)

For some unknown reason (as I can’t read Nepali) a Nepali bank had strung a banner to a tree at the famous Pashnupathi temple. The monkeys loved it!

They used it as a hammock, a swing, and as a launching pad to jump down on other unsuspecting monkeys who were hanging around for the fun.

I guess you say they were making a monkey out of banks!

30 Seconds: Monkeyin’ Around


Monkeys are everywhere in Kathmandu, especially around temples or scraps of undeveloped land.  They are so fun to watch, but can also be annoying pests and even dangerous at times.  I had fun filming them on the Bagmati River last week. I think they were actually hamming it up for the camera. Here’s a few seconds worth.  Enjoy!
