Photographer's Note

*Nilkantha Peak & The Moon*
Photo captured at early morning when the first rays of sun enlighted this beautiful peak. At the top there you can find the presence of the moon...
Neelkanth (21640 ft) is a major peak of the Garhwal
division of the Himalayas, in the Uttarakhand region of the Indian state of Uttaranchal . Although substantially lower than the highest peaks of the region, it towers dramatically over the valley of the Alaknanda River and rises above the Hindu holy town of Badrinath, only 9 km to the east. Frank Smythe described the peak as "second only to Siniolchu in Himalayan beauty."
