Clouds from both sides

Kunda Dixit

Tourists are told not to visit Nepal in the monsoon. It is actually the best time to visit. To see water in the sky in the form of vapour. You may not get to look at mountains, but you can pass the days cloud-gazing. Towering white water vapour castles are etched against an indigo sky, their shapes changing with every passing moment. Dazzling and billowing, they are sometimes blinding white, sometimes heavy and dark, then glowing pastel in the slanting rays of the setting sun. The next morning, after a night of rain, the sky is covered by an upside down carpet. All the dust has been washed away, and the snow mountains appear, tantalisingly brief, close enough to touch.

The setting sun finds its way through clouds to spotlight Kathmandu.

Afternoon clouds building up over Kathmandu.

Blue replaced by grey.

Champadevi’s white shawl.

The town of Pharping between cloud and forest.

The morning air is so clear Mt Everest is visible 200km away.

Prayers in the wind.

Mist moves up the ridge.

Ganesh Himal shiny and bright above Nagarjun.

Sun below clouds.
