India and China - November 16th, 2009

Smoke from agricultural fires in Pakistan blows eastward into the states of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh (from west to east) in India. The Himalayas to the north prevent the smoke from spreading farther, into China.

Here, the side of the Himalayas facing Tibet in China is covered in snow, while the side facing India remains untouched. The mountain areas visible here are part of several national parks and reserves, including Govind Pashu National Park, Gangotri National Park and Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve (visible from west to east).
