Nepal in Pictures

The pictures are great. The cloth that is hanging on the clothesline you see are called Prayer Flags. The blessings of the prayers are carried by the winds. This is a Tibetan Buddhist tradition. There are many locations in Nepal along the various mountain trails that lead up to Everest and others that have hundreds of Prayer Flags hung, for luck, happiness and long life. They are often hung in high places so the wind can carry them far, which is why you'll often see them along particular spots on a mountain trail or even on top of a peak, hill and rooftops.

Just thought I'd fill in the hole, don't think it was explained anywhere.
