Makalu & Kanchenjunga

Some years ago flying from Bhadrapur in east Nepal to Kathmandu I managed to get a clear view of two 8000 meters peaks, Kanchenjunga and Makalu; two rivers Arun and Tamur and Dhankuta town with Jun Chiyabari tea garden above it.

Arun River begins its journey north of the Himalaya in the Tibetan plateau in China while Tamur begins its journey in the Kanchenjunga area.

In the middle of this picture is Jun Chiyabari at 1850 meters.

I have put labels so that it is easy to see which is where. Just click on the image!


  1. Beautiful landscape of Nepal.
    I do not forget the beauty of the Himalayas.

    I want to go to Nepal again.
