I jumped out of the bed, got hold of my camera, and rushed out to the hotel balcony. As I looked out of the big window, I was greeted with the view sought by everyone coming to Pelling and which had eluded us so far because of the weather: that of the majestic KANCHENJUNGA, resplendent in all its snow capped glory.The best and closest view of such a beauty would ever have got. I took several pictures of the mighty Kanchenjunga, sharing some of the enigmatic views of it.Pelling is the only place in India where you will get such a stunning view of the Kanchenjunga.The indelible sunrise.We were not complaining any more after the life's best gift that we got from Pelling.After witnessing such transcendental view of the Himalayas, we were not in the mood to pack up our bags and pull up our socks and return to our mundane lives. But we have to do . That is the reality. So, after we had our breakfast and coffee we checked out from the hotel and bid adieu to the rendezvous Pelling around 8:30 am and hired a shared transport to Geyzing-> Jorethang and finally to NJP station and our journey through the road was predictably uneventful . We reached Kolkata and our home early next morning. We all shall be reminiscing this trip for our lifetime.And suggestion from me would be if you want to witness such indelible sunrise over the mighty Himalayas, please do visit Pelling in the months of October-December when the sky remains crystal clear and you will get unobstructed view of the mountains.We all bow down before your highness - The Unfathomable Kanchenjunga.P.S.
