I took it while approaching Gairibas. It is in the trek route of Sandakphu. You can see the huts of Gairibas below. The sanctuary starts from here. Rare animal red panda could be found here. Except it bear, leopard etc. are the other habitant of this place. From Gairibas you can trek a uphill of 3 km to reach Kalipokhri. You can see the way through rhododendron forest in this shot. Nice place. Beautiful environment with the incoming clouds. I enjoyed it very much. Hope you also like it.

I'm impressed by the quality of this photo. The details are suberb thanks to the excellent sharpness. Colors are also natural and pleasant. But the composition is what makes this a lot interesting. You made great use of the diagonal of the hill and fog. Very well done!

Beautiful colors. Amazing sharpness you recorded. The contrast between the fog and green are too good. I like the vertical format also. Very well done.

I like the diagonal line about the picture.
Also the fog in background gives a nice atmosphere.
We see the small way swinging motion make between the mountains.
Very well done, TFS. I wish you a Merry Christmas.
Have a nice week,

This place is not only a wonder of nature, but also it has a kind of mystery in it. It should be nice to have a glass of tea or coffee while resting above the clouds. Very good POV and an impressive capture.
Thanks for sharing,

Nice view of the green slopes with the clouds hugging the slope. The winding path creates a fine perspective and the ant-like people gives an idea of scale. Its always difficult to control exposure on these white clouds, but you've done well. Good work here!

A lovely composition with a combination
of fogg and lush greenry. You can almost
feel the humid condition. Nice saturated
green. The POV from above gives a good
perspective of this beautifull place.
Regards and take care.

The gravel road winding up the steep hillside makes a picturesque sight!
The mystery is all there, making me wonder where the track leads, somewhere hidden in the fog...
Well composed with fine details!

What a fresh environment for staying, it is good for health with breathing the fresh air all year round, good bird view shoot to show houses on the slope, thanks for sharing.
~ Happy New Year 2010 ~

Hi Subhendu, this is a beautiful vertical view of these incredibile mountains. the houses look so tiny from your POV. The mist is fantastic and creates a wonderful atmosphere and everything looks so lush and green. Nice work, thanks for sharing,and a happy New Year to you, Lisa

A well framed composition and an interesting and lovely landscape. The green is so intense and those trees in the fg are a major subject which leads the eye towards the houses. Technically flawless and highly descriptive. A very good work.
