not sure if there is any other thread like this...but my question is based on my mother's allegation that, on a clear day, Mt Everest can be seen with the naked eye from Northern Bangladesh (eg Dinajpur).

Is this true?

Himalayan foothills yes. Mt. Everest, no. Do the math - height of Mt Everest (29028? ft), distance between its location and a point extreme North Bangladesh - say somewhere in Panchagrah. Compute the angle - and then the height of any intervening ranges that would block the view. For simplicity, ignore the curvature of the earth. Remember that the everest is on the other side of Nepal on the Tibetan border.

how far would the distance be? 200 miles at most? assuming everest is 5 miles tall, that gives a hypotenus of 200.06 miles...angle = 1.43 degrees. Hmm...

Seems to be 200 miles away from the BD border...if Mt Rainer at half the height of everest (14,400 ft) can be seen from Downtown Seattle from a distance of 54 mile away at this magnitude:

Everest should be able to be seen from the border of BD, if nothing is blocking the view. Of course intervening ranges most probably block the view completely. I think even with the curvature of the earth, 200 miles is not sufficient curvature to take Everest out of view. But that is just my guess.

Asaad, this picture is taken from our "Pics of Bangladesh" thread, page 26, posted by Imtiaz.
The picture is originally taken by some Dr Zubair.

The pic was taken at Tetulia, the northern most "thana" of Bangladesh.

most probably the kanchenjungha or one of the lesser known peaks of the mahabharat range. siliguri lies almost exactly due north of the northernmost point of BD and I remember watching the mountains from there. you could even see the cars driving up the winding roads to darjeeling !

Good call!

Here is Kanchenjunga from Darjeeling. Incidentally, Kanchenjunga is the worlds 3rd largest peak with K2 (also known as Godwen Austin) being the 2nd.

impossible to see the south facade of everest even if it was right there from BD...u could see most of the east face though.

curvature of the earth's surface complicates the exact calculation...although given that 200 miles (aproximate distance from Tetulia to Mt Everest) is quite small in comparison to the 24,000+ mile circumference of the earth, the "drop" of Everest is likely to be minimal.

btw, Rabiul bhai, amazing find from Imtiaz bhai's thread.

So Kangchenjunga is aprox 120 km (75 miles) away from the BD border. should be easily visible given the Mt Rainier/Seattle example.

^ Its because liquid enzyme(saliva) in your mouth evaporates when you chew a chewingum keeping your mouth half open for long time.

It's true. I haven't seen it myself, but a few people in my family have. You need a clear day to get the view.

If you sweat more than a normal guy when exercising does this mean you are burning more fat?

Also tumar ghamey ki gondho hoi bhaiya? tahole you must stop eating meat, egg, oninon and garlic ASAP and eat fresh fruits only + only green vegies, use Old Spice!!

Thanks a million for the pic Rabz bhai. What a landscape!

I've hard from the people of top northern part of Bangladesh that on a clear day they can see mount everest.

I think we have established that we can see Kanchenjunga (and that is Kanchenjunga) and the range ob which it is (this blocks the Everest unfortunately from view). In any event, this is a magnificent site. I urge Kabir and Auntu to follow the interesting discourse we had subsequent to this picture being put up.

Saliva is actually not the enzyme... its a fluid that carries several enzymes (e.g Amylase) that break down carbohydrates, proteins, lipids etc... Saliva also contains antibacterial elements, electrolytes, mucus, water etc
