Photographer's Note

Munsyari is the name of a town and a tehsil in the Pithoragarh District in the hill-state of Uttarakhand, India.

It lies at the base of the great Himalayan mountain range, at an elevation of about 2,200 m (7,200 ft), and is a starting point of various treks into the interior of the range.

There is nothing much to do in this lazy township, except to watch the Himalayan wonder. The sunrise is an event that is to be witnessed to be believed, it appears as if the rays of the sun ever so gently kissing the peaks one by one, traveling down snowy inclines, it is as if a river of molten gold is rolling down the silver slopes, until the whole range shimmers in a golden haze. Later, in the day one can visit Nanda Devi temple, a small white structure, tucked into solitude in the lap of mighty Himalayas. A still under construction watch tower offers one a mesmerizing 360 degrees view of the whole valley housing Munshiyari and the mountains surrounding it, the experience is awesome except for that harrowing unearthly sway at the top, each time a strong gust of wind kisses by it or some other adventurer is trying to get atop it. Here nothing stands between you and the peaks.
