Photographer's Note

This is the first shot from my trip to the Darjeeling district (yes, again!). This shot taken just outside the town of Ghoom, while going to Jorepokhri.
Ghoom means 'sleep', at an altitude of 2407 meters, the everpresent clouds and mist indeed creates a dreamy, sleepy atmosphere here. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway has its highest located railway station here.

As we left Ghoom, we were gradually entering a land of clouds, and it is prettey psychological as to find at some point there is no road visible beyond some 10-20 meters!

A shot taken at the same place towards the left into the gorge is here.
