’Rhododendron branches covered in moss.’

	In april the gorge of the Mutlung Pala between Deurali and Tadapani in the Annapurna Conservation Area is filled with flowering rhododendron trees. The stems and branches of the trees are covered with moss as a result of the wet conditions during the southwestern monsoon in the summer months. Photo Paul Smit.
