We were just approaching Tonglu. It was late afternoon. The sun was preparing itself to set as everyday. Golden-red light reflected in snow capped mountains. At left beside silhouetted mountain you can see world's 3rd highest peak Kanchenjunga followed by Pandim etc. Tonglu (10000 ft) is in the trek route of Sandakphu. Though you can't find it in conventional route. From Meghma you have to leave the conventional route to trek about 2km with a steep uphill to reach this place. Not many trekker generally used to visit Tonglu in their trek to Sandakphu, but it is a nice place with a single trekker's hut which it itself a beauty. You can see the hut in my previous post. A vast range of snow capped peaks of Himalaya could be seen from this place in clear day. We were lucky to enjoy this view from Tonglu. Hope you also enjoy it.

I love this picture, it touches me because it shows a special moment. The snowy peaks of the highest mountains are still bright, they receives the last golden rays of sun on this part of the land. I wish I had been there. Thanks for sharing. Go to my favorites.
Have a nice week

spectacular the view of this sunset with the last rays of the sun to just fall on the snowy tops of the Mts before the sun hidden.I like this dreamily atmosphere as the colour tint of the scene.

Good shot...I have a similar shot from Himachal. The last rays of the sun striking the snow capped peaks is stunning...just wish you could shoo away that black cloud there

so you were returning to this exciting place again! Very well working POV on these majestic mountains and very beautiful colors. The light is amazing. My compliments!

Excellent distance, the mountains on the back look really far away, with a universe in between. Very good perspective, congratulations!

The view of these superb mountains at nearly sunset time is charming. Your composition is well balanced with the dark silhuette in fg which gives depth. Fine atmosphere and colours of a place of great interest.
(You could clean the sky with Neatimage...)

- Beautiful sunset Subhendu, on this nice mountain landscape with amazing colors, sometimes a few minutes later or earlier and the magic is gone, then you just shot at the right time and what light, well done!
Have a nice end of year.

A very beautiful sunset painting the snow and ice of the summits reddish. Then there is this dark cloud which adds DOF to your shot. The Himalaya is such a nice place for trekking. You must have had a very good time up there. Vibrant color hues and fine sharpness, well done
