Sikkim Diaries: The Elusive Kanchenjunga

Gangtok, 11-Oct-2017, 0640 hours:

Sleeping at the foothills of the majestic Mt. Kanchenjunga, I woke up as early as 4:30 a.m. for the sight of the 3rd highest peak on earth. But this time around I was not so lucky, for the mountain remained hidden behind the cloud cover. The sunrise provided beautiful view of the valley, with the Ramtek Monastery perched on top of the hill across the valley. For now I am sticking to the balcony hoping for the weather to clear and provide the glimpse of the mountains.
