World’s third-highest Peak is clearly visible from West Bengal’s Siliguri

The national lockdown seems to the best thing to ever happen since the birth of mankind. The pollution levels have decreased drastically, the wild animals claimed their habitats and nature has been blooming in human beings’ absence.

Recently, a picture of Kangchenjunga, which is the third highest mountain in the world was posted by Twitter user @mundhrashish.

In the photo, the user specifically mentions how the mountain is clearly visible from his home in Siliguri and it looks really mesmerising.

On the other hand, the Pir Panjal range, part of the inner Himalayan region, running across the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh and Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, is now easily visible to the naked eye and people of Srinagar couldn’t have asked for a pleasing sight. Had it not been for this lockdown, then people wouldn’t have caught the breathtaking pictures.

Pictures of the mesmerizing view were tweeted out by a journalist identified as Waseem Andrabi. He wrote, ‘Pir Panjal range of mountains is visible from Srinagar city on April 23, 2020, in Srinagar’.

For the unversed, Pir Panjal is the largest range of the Lesser Himalayas which is situated near the bank of the Sutlej river. It actually dissociates itself from the tallest peak and forms a divide between the rivers Beas and Ravi on one side and the Chenab on the other side.

The breathtaking images soon spread like wildfire on social media.
