Travels in Nepal #21 Mountain Views
On my trek in the Himalayas last January one of the most impressive aspects of my time in the mountains of Nepal was the constant mountain views to be had in every direction. Possibly the most amazing of all were the views from Namche Bazar. Towering mountains in all directions is the norm. No matter which way one looks the views are worth a thousand photos. Above is just one of many I took during my stay at this village.
I must admit to spending quite some time just sitting in the dining room of the lodge where I was staying and simply staring out of the windows at the scene. I tried to soak up the staggering scenery on show in every direction.
In the late afternoons the dining room is the place to be, especially when the heater is lit. The setting sun sets the surrounding mountains ablaze with light and colour. As the nearest mountain leaves the lodge in its shadows the temperature plummets in minutes. That is when the fireplace becomes a magnet for the trekkers.
