If you do not like Nathang Valley, you would not like paradise. Located at an altitude of 13,500 feet, this lush valley was the home to traditional yak herders who came from Tibet. Few streams crisscross the valley, and prayer flags flutter on the mountain edges on this vast plain of nothingness. Nathang Valley appears in different colours in different times of the year. In autumn it looks golden when the grass dries up, in rainy season it’s covered in flowers and in winter it is buried in 5 feet of snow. Nathang Valley is also visited by migratory birds just before the onset of winter. There’s a monastery, a temple and a small bridge over a small stream in the distance dotting the valley.

A good one, where most of the visual impact lies on the red box well placed at right of the compo, making an excellent color contrast with the all white snow covered scenery
Bravo, well done

Splendid this winter postcard, which shows this population tight roofs, at the foot of the mountain pride, it definitely serves as a shelter, that big red box is a big impact, it breaks with the whiteness of the landscape.
A beautiful job very well done.
With good lighting and sharpness.
Have a nice day.

this is beautiful... Dear brother you composed it superbly with great light and colours. The view with those snow capped mountains at back is marvellous. Like how you included those cottages in foreground which give your composition a superb depth. Excellent shot. Tfs.

very nice the snowy scenery of the village from this panoramic POV.I like the beautiful presentation as the excellent light and colour management.

Were it not for the red tank it would have little colour,ideal therefore for a well composed winter scene.
Excellent details and clarity.

bello scatto ad alta quota, curato e ben tagliato. Ottima nitidezza e luce.
Simpatica l'unica nota colorata che spicca in mezzo a tanta neve!

Really a beautiful view of the valley, i like these geometric shapes of roofs covered with snow and as contrast the wild silhouettes of mountains, fantastic winter scenery, very well captured

seems like this Valley gets a wide range of climates.
even the winter snow climate makes this place look attractive.
nice little town nestled in under the mountain range.
the white and blacks contrast each other so well.
love the splash of red too.

Qualité excellente, un froid qui ce fait ressentir, intéressant contraste du cube colorée avec le reste de la composition

Wonderful view of snow covered Gnathang. Like the snow covered identical roofs and the red water tank breaking the monotony of white in the frame. Beautiful part of Sikkim which I need to visit soon. Nice one, thanks for sharing.

il Sikkim è sempre stato il mio sogno e arrivai anche a progettare un viaggio in auto per arrivarci dall'Italia, ma poi non se ne fece più nulla.
Un vero peccato perchè questa regione ha delle particolarità che da una parte ricordano l'India e dall'altrra il Tibet senza che l'una prevalga sull'altra e facendole coesistere in maniera molto armonica.
La tua foto ci ricorda l'aspetto invernale, le sue montagne, il gelo e la neve ma è piacevole anche pensare al eriodo estivo.
Buon fine settimana

without this red box on the right it would be almost look like B&W shot.So the box and the way you placed it in the frame makes this image really exceptional and eye-catching.

beautiful snowy landscape well framed with mountains and houses in the Fg, good effect with the coloured sqare on the corner in the bottom of the view.
