This is a sunset shot from my recent visit to the beautiful hamlet, Lolegaon [@ 1850 m, 123 Km from Siliguri; overlooking Kalimpong] on the slopes of the pristine green hills of the Darjeeling district..It was taken from a sunset point atop a hill which requires a 500 m trek through unspoiled pine forest..We started the climb at around 4:30 pm and reached the top at around 5:15 pm..Its worth a million bucks as the view from the point is just breathtaking specially at sunset..These are hill dogs [not domesticated] with more fur than usual city dogs that we see in the plains..In the morning I had fed these dogs with biscuits and cake..Thanks a trillion to these beautiful animals that they actually followed us right up to the sunset point, giving me this photo opportunity..
