Sarangkot, near Pokhara, Nepal

View from Sarangkot, 1600m above sea level. The left view, towards the north, would have been spectacular if the clouds had lifted -- that's where the majestic Annapurna mountains can be seen, with the rest of the Great Himalaya peaks. To the right, there's Pokhara town and the scenic glacial Lake Phewa, The white Peace Stupa can be seen atop another mountain on the far side of the lake. 16 September 2012.
