A cloud of smoke hangs in the air over northern India, south of the Himalayas. Through the veil of smoke, various rivers can be seen flowing down from the mountains and across the plain.

North of the Himalayas, part of the Tibetan Lakes Region is visible. Also, the right half of the mountains visible in the image are part of Nepal.
