The Mount Everest was visible from a village in Bihar after decades in the wake of the coronavirus lockdown.
Residents of a village in Bihar witnessed a stunning view of the Mount Everest from their houses after decades on Monday. Due to minimal activity across states in the wake of the nationwide coronavirus lockdown, air quality has improved to a great extent while pollution has decreased.
An image of the picturesque Mount Everest, visible from Bihar, was tweeted by Parveen Kaswan of the Indian Forest Service as he mentioned in the caption of his post that Singhwahini village residents were able to see the mountains clearly.
“When people of Singhwahini village, Bihar saw Everest from their own houses. They say this happened after decades,” Parveen Kaswan tweeted.
It’s not impossible to see the Mount Everest from the village in this context but what’s seen cannot be confirmed to be the tallest mountain peak on earth. What we can say with certainty is that the snow-capped range seen in the photograph is the upper Himalayas and Sagarmatha is part of the range.
Last month, Jalandhar residents were able to see Himachal Pradesh’s Dhauladhar range while snow peaks were visible from Saharanpur as well.
Due to the coronavirus lockdown, not only has the air quality improved but animals and birds are spotted every now and then in several cities. Peacocks danced around in Mumbai while deer were spotted in residential neighbourhoods in Dehradun.
India is under complete lockdown since March 25 as it has been imposed to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.
