Himalayan Moonrise

We were driving towards Kufri in Himachal Pradesh when we spotted this beautiful moon rising over the Himalayan peaks just before sunset.

 

This was my absolute favourite travel moment because (a) we nearly missed seeing this and it was so totally unexpected and (b) the setting was the most beautiful ever - we were on a road climbing up a mountain-side with evergreen trees all along the side with this scene playing itself out as we saw it through cracks between the branches of the trees. Its one of those moments you never forget.
