Taudaha Pond, Kirtipur Nepal

This photograph of Taudaha is taken from the Bosan hill. Taudaha Lake is a small lake in the outskirts of Kathmandu, in Nepal. The name comes from a combination of Newari words 'Ta', meaning snake and 'Daha', which means lake. The Taudaha Lake is believed to be a remnant pool of the huge lake that once existed where now the city of Kathmandu sits
