A mountain trail in Gorkha region, Nepal provides beautiful views over the surrounding villages and mountain peaks. But the view along the trail is not as pleasing. Heaps of plastics lay around that locals and tourists have thrown away. During the descent, I filled my backpack and a plastic bag in just 15 minutes and disposed of it in a garbage bin in the village below. Some local boys watched me suspiciously; I hope my action planted a seed in them to take care of our common home.
