[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is from my latest visit to Binsar. The picture was taken from Zero Point inside Binsar Sanctuary. I hope you like the capture and thanks for standing by.

Nanda Devi is the second highest mountain in India (excluding Pakistan-administered Kashmir) and the highest entirely within the country (Kangchenjunga being on the border of India and Nepal); owing to this geography it was the highest known mountain in the world until computations on Dhaulagiri by western surveyors in 1808. It was also the highest mountain in India before Sikkim joined the Indian Union. It is part of the Garhwal Himalayas, and is located in the state of Uttarakhand, between the Rishiganga valley on the west and the Goriganga valley on the east. Its name means Bliss-Giving Goddess. The peak is regarded as the patron-goddess of the Uttarakhand Himalaya.

Amazing photo. Magnificent mountains, beautiful clouds. The whole composition is wonderful.

This seems like a different perspective on Nanda Devi, Sujoy. I'm familiar with its solitary conical peak (seen in pictures; I've not seen the mountain with my own eyes) rather than its massif as you see it from Binsar.
Anyway, it is a beautiful shot with deep cloud bank at the rear of the range.
Thanks for sharing it.
