On a clear morning Mt.Kachendzonga is visible from all parts of Gangtok. But I was not lucky enough, during my several past visits I missed this marvellous view. This time God did not deprive me and on the day of our return we could gaze her for about 1 hour from 5.30am to about 7.00a. But at 7.00 am it was quite hazy.

It was also not possible to capture her more clearly with my Canon 530 or Nikon S50C pocket digital camera using digital zoom from great distance. Someday, I hope to carry a SLR with ED zoom.

What I could see, was no less than a blessing. I took about 30-40 pictures.
