Nagarkot - Sunset & Sunrise

Saturday, 11 November 2017

We arrived in Nagarkot after a two-hour drive on a narrow, rutted, mostly one-lane road. We got to our hotel just before sunset, and immediately went to the rooftop terrace to catch the view.

The has dropped below mountains to the west.
Prayer flags siloutted against the sunset.
The tall Himalayan peaks in the distance capture the fading light. The many hotels in Nagarkot are in the foreground.

The process reverses at sunrise.

The high peaks catch the early light before sunrise.
Mt. Everest can just barely be seen on the shoulder of the left-most mountain, underneath the pink cloud.
Morning light strikes Nagarkot (foreground) and the Himalayas.
