Photographer's Note

Nagarkot, at 2000 elevation, located 32 kilometers east of Kathmandu, is one of the most scenic spots in Bhaktapur district and is renowned for its spectacular sunrise view of the Himalaya and Kathmandu Valley when the weather is clear. It's so calm, quiet and beautiful surrounded by terraced hillsides and picturesque farm houses, no pollution, no honking of vehicles, pure O2, greenery and fresh people with smiles on their faces, all in one package. This place is the epitome of an idyllic escape - with only the wind and the sound of rustling leaves to disturb you....

This was taken from a ridge in Lamadida village at the 200mm end of the lens with tripod mounted, portraying the verdant fields and the typical cultivation pattern for the area with layers of terrace revealing themselves on a slight misty overcast afternoon.
