These Enchanting Alpine Forests at a height of over 4000 metres ( approximately 13300 feet)  are also home to Unique Flora  like the Primulas and Fauna like the Red Panda.

The Dense Mist adds to the Mystery of these Spellbinding  Himalayan Forests.

During the winters these very slopes would be covered under a Carpet of Snow.

  1. I have long been fascinated by the Himalayas, so I truly appreciate you sharing your photos with us. It’s wonderful to be able to able to see these images of the mightiest terrestrial mountains on Earth.

    Also, I normally don’t like the cold, but I wouldn’t mind experiencing these mountains in the winter! I know it would be uncomfortable, but seeing them carpeted in snow would be incredible.

      1. Thank you Mukul! I have been very busy lately, since I’ll be starting graduate school soon and am moving to California in less than a month. I’ve also been trying very hard to teach myself Spanish lately.

        If you can see the Himalayas under snow in the summer, then maybe that’s when I’ll go! I imagine the unpredictable weather would make traveling there during the winter very dangerous: even foolish.
