[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The alpine regions of Yumthang, ... October to mid- December is autumn and this is one of the finest seasons in Sikkim. The rains have washed the atmosphere clear and there are views of mountains every day. The days are clear & sunny where as nights crisp & cold.

Every turn here brings you a new panorama. One may sense the beautiful weather in this region of Sikkim which is in close proximity to mesmerizing Yumthang Valley situated in the high altitude area. This view is dedicated to Missy :)

Hi Subhash,

This is a world I have never seen! A beautiful landscape with such beautiful and unusual colors that it doesn't look real. Unusual to me anyway since we don't have changing colors here. How I would love to walk that path to see more of the lovely vegetation.


Hallo Subhash
Not only is it great to look at the variety of autumn colours photographed here, but it is also wonderful to experience and feel the absolute tranquil atmosphere captured. So peaceful and lovely to look at. It can only be wonderful to witness this in real. This image is the first I opened this morning and it is just what I needed to start this day. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards.
