Instagram Photo Caption: Shooting a timelapse above the village of #Deboche tonight, watching #Everest and the south face of #Lhotse and #Nuptse turn crimson. While I sat, camera clicking away, I saw a dozen #danphe, the national bird of #Nepal, for musk deer, and I’m 50% certain I caught a glimpse of a snow leopard scuttling away through the rhododenron forest…not kidding.
Amazing evening, and I’m reminded of the #Skanda #Purana: “In a hundred ages of the gods, I cannot tell three of the glories of the #Himalaya. As the dew is dried by the morning sun, so are the sins of man at the sight of the Himalaya.” #magic #liveyouradventure #travelstoke

    Stunning photograph as always Jake! The snow leopard is a very rare cat, I hope what you saw was this awesome creature.
