Morning at Sailung

5:50 AM: The orange lining of the sky beautified the dawn. The cold wind was rustling as it danced in rhythm with the leaves and branches of the trees around and reddening our noses as we breathed in the fresh cold air. We were cold on the outside with every touch of the chilling breeze and warming up from the inside with every struggling step nearing the tower. Finally, when we reached the top of the view tower, we were left breathless and enthralled as the mountain range and the many hillocks all around the tower came into view. Rightly named, the place with the view of 100 hillocks i.e. Sai-lung, today was glowing from the light of the bright and full moon in the west while we waited for the sun to rise from the east. At 6:46pm, we finally saw a glimpse of a ray of light. The sun was rising. Everyone geared up and were ready to capture the majestic moment in any way they could. The sun rose like no other day. The sun rose like none of us had ever seen before. Like a bulging fire, the sun rose and as it rose, it painted the Everest region golden. And with every second, the ray shot the colors of gold to Rolwaling, Ganesh, Langtang and Annapurna range. The view of the golden mountains, the full moon and the glowing sun, the chilly mist below the mountain lines, overlooking so many hillocks in the 360-degree view enraptured us.  We posed and captured the bewitching panorama in every way we could and finally at 7:30 we came back to reality. The reality that we had a long way to go back home and time was crucial.
