Sunday Snapshot | The World’s Best Sunrise | Poon Hill, Nepal

Worlds Best Sunrise

 

Poon Hill, Nepal is famous for being one best places in the world to view the sunrise. I got lucky on this day, as the preceding month in Nepal had been uncharacteristically cloudy. My hopes of seeing much of anything from this spot were fading fast, but we spent two nights in Gorephani at the base of Poon Hill “just in case”. The first night rained, a lot. The second night was clear, and I made a mad dash to the top of Poon Hill to take pictures of the stars all night. The following morning brought one of the most beautiful sunrises I’ve ever seen, complete with the stunning backdrop of the Annapurna mountain range in the Himalayas.

  1. Wow, lovely. I had my hopes dashed like this when I wanted to see the sunrise at Ahu Tongariki on Easter Island… it was so so so cloudy that morning but we waited and waited and then all of a sudden, the sky just came alive, and it was unforgettable.
