Weekly photo challenge: On top…… of a mountain

This first image I took from the top of the hotel I was staying at in Pokhara 2 or 3 years ago. Many of the buildings are now 4 and 5 stories high , not nearly as pleasing to the eye as they were the first time I visited nearly 30 years ago but the views were at times spectacular! Machapuchari is its name.

This was taken in the Kali Gandaki valley near a small village called Marpha, seeing the snow swirling off the top of this mountain was amazing.

My brother and I both have a love of mountains. The Himalaya would have to be one of the wonders of our planet. We spent a few weeks walking thru the kali gandaki valley which is said to be one of the deepest valleys on earth. Not difficult to imagine.
