Yes, we have been through this a lot of times over the months but we just can’t stop showing you more and more of it. Why you may ask, right? Well, for something like this to happen the next time, we would possibly need a pandemic like the one we are currently in. And surely, you don’t want that right?
So as this happens, let’s suck all the good in.
After Dhauladhar Range from Punjab, the Pir Panjal Range from Srinagar and many more, now, the natives of the Kathmandu valley in Nepal are getting to witness Mount Everest from the first time in years.
This, again, is the result of the cleaning of the air pollution amidst lockdown. The pictures of the same were shared by Nepali Times. Photographer Abhushan Gautam, who works for Nepali Times, had captured the same from Chobar in Kathmandu Valley during dusk earlier this week.
“The COVID-19 Lockdown has cleaned the air over Nepal and northern India. So much so that for the first time in many years, Mt Everest can be seen again from Kathmandu Valley even though it is 200km away,” Nepali Times wrote on Twitter.
“The reduction of vehicular emission due to the COVID-19 lockdown has cleaned the air over Nepal and northern India. So much so that the Himalaya is visible from Chandigarh, Kangchenjunga is visible from Siliguri. And for the first time in many years, Mt Everest can be seen again from Kathmandu Valley even though it is 200km away,” Gautam was quoted by Nepali Times.
In other similar phenomenons, Gangotri Range was recently visible from Saharanpur.
Dhauladhar range had become visible from Punjab
And also Pir Pnajal range, which is a part of the inner Himalayan region, running across the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh and Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, is now visible from Srinagar.
Beautiful it is. Isn’t it?
