Stunning View Of The Himalayas From Bihar Village Wows Twitter

Residents of Singhwahini village woke up to a stunning view of the Mount Everest on Monday.

A picture of the the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, as seen from a village in Bihar, is currently going viral online. Residents of the Singhwahini village woke up to the stunning view on Monday morning. 

The now-viral picture was shared on Twitter by Ritu Jaiswal, Mukhiya of Gram Panchayat Singhwahini, a village in Bihar's Sitamarhi district. She claims that it shows the highest peak in the world - Mount Everest - which is located in Nepal, hundreds of kilometers away. 

Ms Jaiswal, while sharing the photograph, said that it was the first time she had seen the Mount Everest from her village, though other mountains of Nepal would often be visible in clear weather. 

"We can see the Mount Everest from the roofs of our houses in Singhwahini village of Sitamarhi district," she wrote in Hindi while sharing the pic on the microblogging platform. "Nature is balancing itself," she added, attributing the visibility of Mount Everest to lower air pollution levels due to the ongoing nationwide lockdown. 

Take a look at the picture below:

Ms Jaiswal also answered a query on how she could be certain of the fact that the picture showed the Mount Everest. She said that her husband, when he was a child, would also see the peak from the village during the '80s. 

The picture has gone viral on social media, collecting thousands of 'likes' and 'retweets'. It was also reposted by Indian Forest Services officer Parveen Kaswan, who wrote that Mount Everest was seen from the Bihar village after decades.
