Cloud Avalanche


Recommended Posts

A "cloud avalanche" occurred near the Capuche Glacier Lake in the mountains of Nepal.  That scene is extremely rare, you’re lucky enough to see it once in a lifetime. At that time, a group of travel companions were camping by the lake, and they took the risk of taking pictures of this rare visual feast. 

The white snow clouds rushed down the valley, unstoppable, instantly swallowing the mountains and hitting the lake surface. Against the backdrop of the blue sky and the yellow-brown mountains, they were more distinct, magnificent and shocking. 

The strong air flow overturned the tents and sleeping bags, frightening the travelers, but fortunately no casualties were reported. After that, a small rainbow appeared by the lake, which was extremely beautiful, and the travelers all cheered and marveled at it.

Interesting to see.

One of the most likely causes of the Dyatolv Pass Incident of 1959 was this exact type of event.  Only powerful enough to have hurricane force winds.

This event killed nine Russian hikers died in the northern Urals between 1 and 2 February 1959, in uncertain circumstances.
