Halong Bay junks
Magnificent and mystical Halong Bay is breathtaking in every sort of weather. Morning fog is just clearing the tourist boats among some of thousands lime stone islands.

Sapa is a beautiful place. Deep valley with hillsides transformed into rice terraces and scattered villages all around create magical view.
The best way to view Mount Everest is by far the peak of Kalapattar (5545m) just across the Khumbu Valley. Views are breathtaking and they span almost across the whole valley.

Annapurna rangein the morning from Pothana
Early morning is by far the best time of the day to take photographs. it is my last morning in the mountains in village of Pothana. I woke up pretty early and few minutes later I was welcomed by this fantasy world like sight. I took a series of images which I later stitched together. Colors are true to reality.
Sunrise at Poon Hill
Poon Hill is the usual sunrise lookout place for everybody who visits Annapurna Sanctuary. On a good clear day, few of the 8000m peaks are visible. Most notably Dhaulagiri. Unfortunately from this vantage point, Annapurna I is hidden by smaller sister Annapurna peaks.

Tadapani is a small village on the way to Annapurna Base Camp in relatively low altitude (2600m). It has a good lookout place and if the weather is good, you can be blessed by a nice sunrise like this one.
Annapurna Base Camp
Photo taken from place about vertical 200 metres above the camp. View is looking back into the valley towards the peak of Machapuchare or Fish Tail how it is familiarly called.

Apart from Poon Hill, there is other place in Serangkott where whole Annapurna Mountain range is visible. It is always very dusty an hazy around and first morning light turns the mountains and valleys into a mystical fantasy scenery.
