Imagine 20km stairs ahead of you and it's already dusk - that is the point you realise you will spend your night at a monastery, but you still need to hurry to get there before everything turns pitch black and you're left with the monkeys.

So when one of the most magnificent views you've ever experienced pops up at this time, it's a little tragic you can't spend a few hours just there; not only to make the best photo possible but to breathe in the crisp air, the distant, unknown noises, and the roar of the waterfall.

The waterfall, by the way, started somewhere on the left, on the very top of the mountain, sometimes peaking out of the mist. The formations in the background are not just clouds; most of them are mountains and cliffs themselves.
