Photographer's Note

Thought I'd try a repost today. The original 'Roof of the World' was posted on 23 August 2004. My pp skills have improved a bit since then. A view of the Himalayas from Nagarkot (about 2000 m or 6000'), a hilltop lookout outside Bhaktapur in the Kathmandu Valley. Polarized. The main peak is roughly 7000 m / 21000 '.

From Nagakot, it's possible to see 5 of the world's 10 tallest mountains: Everest (8,848 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Cho Oyu (8,201 m), Makalu (8,463 m) & Manaslu (8,163 m). This would be a great spot for sunrise / sunset.
