I haven't been as high as the Himalayas, but lived for a number of years
at 7000+ feet in Wyoming.  The sky is naturally much darker blue than at
lower altitudes.  This seems to be for several reasons: there is less
moisture to scatter light, and less air molecules to bend the light in
the visible spectrum.  

A polarizer will indeed make the sky darker.  Kind of like the photo of
the rocks at Joshua Tree National Monument on Joel's web page.

So much UV passes through car windows one can get a tan with the windows
up.  I always kept a UV filter on.

If no one else can help maybe Michael Stoesz can. mstoesz@xxxxxxxxxxx 
He still lives in Laramie.
