Paradisical sight of the entire Kanchanjungha range, the third highest mountain peak in the world along with the other peaks of the Eastern Himalayas just before the sunrise or what is better known as the astronomical dawn when the sun is several degrees below the horizon but the light illuminating the entire range…a magical sight to endeavour. Shot from a small and quaint hamlet in the Eastern Himalayas called Tonglu in Eastern India.
