Waiting for the birds ....  

Blue Mountain National Park is a remote forest on the Myanmar-India border. The place is so remote that the only way to access the place is by a long and difficult hike in a forest path. The rest house, which is dilapidated by the way is on a peak 1900 meters high and birding/photography is mostly done on the forest path to and from the guesthouse to the National Park gate. So, that means a daily trek of several kilometers and a climb/descent of at least 400-500 meters along steep cliffs which can make anyone go dizzy. And with all the heavy camera gear, you're worried about taking that fatal fall more than anything else.

So, on this cold morning, I was walking down from the rest house to go to a forest patch which had flowering trees (and that means birds!) Along the way, there was a place to sit which overlooked all the mountains around and more importantly a flowering trees in some distance. This is that place - peaceful and quiet and isolated and stunningly beautiful.
