Himalayas visible in India

If there’s one positive thing to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s this. After 30 years, the Himalayas are visible from parts of Northern India. The Himalayas—located in Asia—are a series of fifty mountains featuring some of the most famous and highest peaks in the world (think Mount Everest in Nepal/China). Some of these glorious peaks are now visible for the first time in years thanks to people staying home.

Twitter user Harbhajan Turbanator tweeted, “Never seen Dhauladar range from my home rooftop in Jalandhar..never could imagine that’s possible..clear indication of the impact the pollution has done by us to Mother Earth.”

A nationwide lockdown of India started on March 24th. “To save India, to save its every citizen, you, your family, every street, every neighborhood is being put under lockdown,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It’s clear that this lockdown is having a positive impact on the environment.
