The sky being clear and fog free, Kanchenjunga, the Beauty Queen of the Himalayan range, is visible quite clearly from Tentulia upazila in the northernmost district of the country Panchagarh. 

Well before the advent of winter, Kanchenjunga, the second highest peak in the Himalayan range and the third highest mountains in the world with an elevation of 8,586 metre has spread its enchanting, dazzling beauty throughout the horizon.  

Tentulia is now a hotspot for the tourists as well the nature lovers who do not have the opportunity to make passports and procure visas to visit India or Nepal to have a look at the beauty of Kunchenjunga.

Under the canopy of vast blue sky above and the deep green forest below, the white snow covered Kunchenjunga is decorated with varieties of colours in various times of a day. The Sunshine in the early morning, in late morning, at noon, in the afternoon and in the evening, makes the  Kunchenjunga decorated with varieties of colours. 

During this late autumn, Kunchenjunga is the main attraction of the tourists visiting Panchgarch. But, the cloudy and foggy sky often makes those visitors disappointed. 

Residents of Tentulia sadar area informed usually  well off people need to traverse bumpy, zigzag road to reach the Tiger Hill of Darjeeling of West Bengal to have a look at the Kunchenjunga while others visit Sandakapu, Falute or even Nepal to have a look at the beauty of Kanchenjunga. 

From almost all spacious places of the upazilas of Panchgarh district, the enchanting beauty of Kunchenjunga can be enjoyed now. 

However, the best clear view of Kunchenjunga is visible from near the Daak Bunglow of Tentulia beside the river Mohananda. Though during the cloud free sky from October to December, the Kunchenjunga is visible every year, this year it is visible from early September. 

Abdul Mobin Babu, a resident of Dorikhorbona area of Rajshahi city recently visited Tentulia to watch the beauty of Kunchenjunga. He informed, the mountains in the sunshine of early morning looks like a huge silver coated mass, in late morning and in the afternoon it took the colour of burnt terracotta, at noon it is neat-white while in the evening it turns crimson red. 

He futher said, the tourists need not traverse a tiresome, ardous long way to Darjeeling or Nepal to enjoy the beauty of Kunchenjunga but by building necessary infrastructure and easing the system of transports, Tentulia would also turn to a tourists hub like that of Tiger Hill, Darjeeling or Nepal.
