Residents of Singhwahini village in Bihar witnessed the magnificent view of Mount Everest from their homes. According to Google Maps, the distance between the Singhwahini village and Mt. Everest is 190 km. Due to no industrial activity and minimal traffic, Air Quality Index across the country has improved with a decrease in pollution.

The images of Mt Everest were shared by Ritu Jaiswal who is the Mukhiya of Gram Panchayat Singhwahini.

We can see Everest from our terrace today in Singhwahini village. Nature is balancing itself.

She tweeted.

The same was tweeted by IFS Parveen Kaswan with a little more information.


He shared a local newspaper report which quotes the elder of the village as claiming that the range visible now due to lack of pollution used to be visible decades ago when the state was not cluttered with activities.

Last month, Jalandhar residents were able to see Himachal Pradesh’s Dhauladhar range while recently, snow peaks were visible from Saharanpur as well.
