On Friday, a stunning view of snow-capped mountains was clearly visible from Chitwan, a district in the southwestern part of Bagmati Province, that borders India.
On rare occasions, the mountains in the northern borders of Nepal are visible from the southern plains during autumn and spring seasons when the weather is clear and air pollution is minimum.
The picturesque mountains were the backdrop during the ongoing paddy harvest season. Nepal’s main cereal crop was planted on a record 98 percent of the land this year but production may not be high because there was fertiliser scarcity when needed.
The Post’s Chitwan correspondent Ramesh Kumar Paudel took some pictures of the mountains from the paddy fields of Bharatpur Metropolitan City, Chitwan, on Friday afternoon.
