Sunrise over the Himalayas

We woke early today and looked out of the window to see an orange glow over to the east. We quickly dressed in almost all of our clothes and took up our positions on our balcony.
It was extremely cold, but then we were at 2,200 metres above sea level.
Gradually the clouds changed from dark grey to purple and then to pink, and the sun started to hit the top of the mountains to the west of us.
Finally, the sun peeped over the horizon and within a couple of minutes its rays were beaming straight across our view, and then the mountains disappeared behind a blinding haze. 
Excellent start to the day, a quick breakfast and then a bouncy ride back down to Kathmandu.
