Travel Haiku - Himalayan National Park Nepal


Himalayan Highland National Park
trailing the mountain range
the groan of a snow leopard

Himalayan Highland National Park
slicing its way through white
a snow leopard

Himalayan Highland National Park
in the white plain
walking snow, snow leopard

Himalayan Highland National Park
in the shadows of Everest
Snow Leopard and Red Panda

Sagarmatha National Park
the Sherpas warm our way
up the mountain

Sagarmatha National Park
in the freezing weather
the warmth of the Sherpas

This park's literal high points—Everest, Lhotse, and Cho Oyu—are three of the world's highest peaks and certainly get their fair share of attention. But the surrounding Himalayan highland park should not be overshadowed. UNESCO granted Sagarmatha National Park World Heritage status in 1979 for its pristine wilderness, rare animals such as snow leopards and the Himalayan red panda, and unique Sherpa culture. Visit in May before the monsoon season arrives.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
