Snow-blanketed farms at Pangboche, Nepal

Location: Pangboche, Khumbu, Nepal (27°51'23.92"N 86°47'17.18"E)
Date: 12 April 2000; 10.45am
Camera: Canon EOS 500N (analogue) on slides and scanned

Most trekkers trek the Khumbu and Annapurna regions in the high season of October/November window as the skies are crisp and clear. However the other trekking season of April/early May can be just as attractive especially since there are a lot less people even though the clouds do come in earlier during the day. Even during this period, one can be rewarded by snow-blanketed views such as these snow covered farms of Pangboche (3985m). Unfortunately I have lost track of the name of mountains around the village- such as the two giants here.
