    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    june is late in the season, so sure to be wet everywhere. however, the weather patterns are yet to be as predictable as singapore, so you can still try your luck in some ways.

    Some regions to try can be the Annarpurna circuit, Dhaulagiri section, which is situated in the western part of nepal. they are teaming with friendly villagers but the season may not be suitable.

    everest region will be pretty deserted by the time you get there, as most expeditions end by then. Go namche bazaar near lukla, and you get to see what is a town like in the high altitude regions.

    but honestly speaking, june would be end season for nepal already. drier places would be east of nepal, and I am talking about areas like India, Sikkim, Pakistan, or even inner China region.

    Do ask the local guides based in those countries and they will give you a better idea.

    Good luck!
