It is the summit of Ghoom, the highest railway station in the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Offering panoramic views of Mount Everest and Mt. Kangchenjunga together; at sunrise, Mount Everest is just visible, however there is no mistaking Kangchenjunga in the morning sunrise. Like waves on an ocean, the rolling west Bengal hills meet the magnificent Kangchenjunga. It was certainly worth losing sleep, rising at 4:00 am to get these photos before breakfast......Available as 8 x 11 or 11 x 17 color or b & w photo on Hahnemuhle Museum Etching Fine Art Inkjet Paper, and each photograph is personally approved and hand-signed by me, the artist.
