India - May 23rd, 2012

A veil of haze or smoke hangs over northern India and Nepal, and is particularly concentrated over the latter country by the southern slopes of the Himalayas. The tall mountains prevent it from spreading further northward into Tibet, China. There, many lakes can be scattered across the Tibetan Plateau, composing what is often referred to as the “Tibetan Lakes Region”.
