In a moonlit night of the World Heritage Site of Sagarmatha National Park in Nepal spectacular view of Himalayas appears under the starry sky. Ama Dablam (6812m) is on the right resting below the twin bright stars of Gemini, Castor and Pollux. On the left Lutse, the world’s 4th highest mountain at 8516m, is visible. Sagarmatha National Park contains a magnificent part of Himalayas and the southern half of Mount Everest. Click on the second photo to see a closer starry view of the two peaks.

    Beautiful! Actually before I was not so interested in astoronomy. What I have been interested is mountain hiking. And I spent many nights on the shoulder or top of the mountains staying in tents or mountain lodge. And I started interested in the beauty of the sky at night. But I have never succeeded
    photographing a nice photo at night. Anyway I would like to take a beautiful photo like this in the near future. Thanks. regards.
