For a week Nepal had cloudless blue skies starting from November 15 (2007). Kathmandu illuminated under the mountain range from Dhaulagiri to Gaurishanker. Mets said the clear skies in Nepal are due to a cyclone in the Bay of Bengal. When the skies are clear in the Valley, 80% of the Himalayan range can be seen from Lalitpur area.

    On comments by Kunda Dixit above,How the hell he knows about BA404 on arrival from Nepalgunj commencing Dharke App and into 2D arc to line up for 02!!! The scary thing is that he is right!
    He’s also right about Manasalu.
