The Terai is a narrow lowland ecoregion at the base of the Himalayas, about 25 km wide.
It is a mosaic of tall riverside grasslands, savannas and evergreen and deciduous forests, depending on soil quality and the amount of rain each area receives.
The grasslands of the Terai in Nepal are among the tallest in the world, and are maintained by silt deposited by the yearly monsoon floods.
Although the population density has been low it is now growing, especially in the southern Terai belt and much of the ecoregion has been converted to farmland since the forest was cut down for timber.
The areas of tall grasslands, which in particular have been much reduced for farmland, are of special conservation importance. (source : wiki)

Old picture from a remote country, Miguel.
Inspite the "noise" on image - we can see how unique this landscape is.
If you'll allow me - I will post a WS, trying to correct the noise.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Looks like an old film shot. I love the warm cold color contrast btween the blue sky & the yellow green grass. A simple but effective composition. The magnificent snow capped peaks make a nice backdrop. Tfs!
