Prakriti Nepal 

“Prakriti” in Sanskrit means Nature

"" is a blog that features the flora and fauna found in Nepal.

Namaste!!!  I’m Ajay Narsingh Rana, an avid macro photographer who created this blog to share the beautiful flora and fauna we have in our country- Nepal. Taking pictures and documenting the subject is defiantly fun but I realized that there were not many online resources available for amateurs to learn and identify the subjects here in Nepal, and what resources were available were difficult to access. The aim of this site is to bring people like me who are avid lovers of nature & wildlife,  students or the general public to see and identify the nature & wildlife that Nepal has to offer. So let’s talk nature, spread the knowledge, help protect the fragile life cycle and coexist in this beautiful world.

Please feel free to leave a comment in the posts with your valuable suggestions and pointers for the errors I'v made.


About Me

From wildlife - adventure photography to blogging about it, from working as an elite national commissaire in mountain bike races to coaching the National Team and teaching skills in National Television, from designing a mountain bike tour up in the mountains to guiding one, from working as a NOLS certified wilderness first responder to teaching first aid in rural villages along with many more things. I do what I love and love what I do, with the focus of learning more every single day.
