Share

Kangchendzonga National Park of West Sikkim is not only famous for it’s Dzongri & Goecha La and Kasturi Oral Round Trek, it offers some of the Breathtaking views of Himalayan Mountains. I have already posted article on Himalayan Mountains of Kangchendzonga National Park. This article is all about view of Himalayan Mountains during Golden hour at KNP, West Sikkim.

Golden Hour (In Photography): In photography, the golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour, especially in cinematography) is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky.
