Travels in Nepal #19 Magnificent Mountains
Namche Bazar in Nepal must have one of the most rugged aspects of any place in the Himalayas. No matter which direction one turns there are magnificent mountains. On the morning hike to the ridge above the township we witnessed the sunrise on the surrounding mountain tops. The ice and snow contrasting with the beautiful sky and the harsh rock made the area downright picturesque.
There is one thing that still bugs me, months after the trek. I didn’t ask the question at the time and haven’t found the answer since. In the photo above, and in many of my other photos taken in this area, some parts of the mountains are snow and ice covered while others are quite bare of snow. This seems to be true even if the mountains are about the same height. Why? If anyone can help me, use the comments section and enlighten me.
