Two weeks ago, during Tihar break, I drove to my hometown of Pokhara, on my way to a trek outside the city that I had never done in the past. I ended up with a nasty cough and cold, and holed up in the city trying to recover. I was hoping to fight the nuisance of the cold and hit the trail within 24-hours. But it wasn’t to be. I ended up spending four days in the city.

One of the things I did then — at sunrise and sunset — was to take some shots of the Annapurna Mountain Range, the most beautiful mountain range in the world, which makes the city of Pokhara what it is.

The following series were taken from Sarangkot, my favorite spot for taking photos of the mountains and viewing the events.

If only natural beauty fed the stomach as much as it does the soul…
