Mount Everest is Visible From Kathmandu for First Time in Living Memory

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Last week Mount Everest was visible from Kathmandu for the first time in living memory. The picture above, taken from Chobar by Abhushan Gautam, of the world’s highest peak over 120-miles away, would not have been possible two months ago, reports the Nepal Times.

Due to the global lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus, vehicles are off the roads, and industry has ground to a halt, resulting in significantly reduced air pollution and clean air above Nepal.

Hospital admissions for respiratory illnesses brought on by pollution and poor quality air in the area have also seen a sharp drop in the last couple of months.

    is that mountain really mount everest? the mountains alongside are way taller in the picture.

      No way possible ! I have been in Kathmandu 1961,62,64, and 1968 and walked all the way to Makalu!
      was on a survey team. One can see Gaurishanka that is much closer to Kathmandu but lines up with Everest! That was always believed to be the Everest. This is not Everest !

      • Ed Paulsen Reply

        Amusing that a fairly simple check with Google Earth can line up that exact picture and yes indeed, that *IS* Mount Everest and everybody can prove it for themselves… It is also lining up with Kang Nachugo … not Gauri Sankar, which isn’t even in the photo and would be the whole width of the photo further to the left.

        The convenient thing is that one can draw a line straight up from the peak of Everest and then see where that line is for the ground level view from the photo… Sorry to burst your bubble but the view speaks for itself and can be proven by anybody with a little time.

    • Ed Paulsen Reply

      Yes it is, see comment above, Perhaps one should use a bit of science and available tools *first*….

    Fom Chobar and most southern part of the valley you can see the mighty Himalaya, even Annapurna Himal sometimes. I have photos of most the mountains token in the last years, also similar as above. About Everest yes or not, I guess people discusses since decades…

  112. Thanks for revealing your ideas on this blog. Additionally, a fantasy regarding the financial institutions intentions when talking about foreclosure is that the bank will not getreceive my payments. There is a degree of time that this bank will take payments in some places. If you are far too deep in the hole, they’ll commonly desire that you pay the actual payment completely. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of repayments at all. Should you and the bank can seem to work a thing out, a foreclosure procedure may end. However, if you continue to neglect payments under the new plan, the foreclosure process can just pick up from where it was left off.
