*First Light On Nilkantha Peak*
A himalayan peak in Uttarakhand with a height of 21600ft... Photo captured at early morning, just after sunrise.
Myth about Nilkantha:
It is believed that there was no mountain on the spot where Nilkantha stands today. There was an adage route between Kedarnath and Badrinath. The "Purahita" or the
worshipper of the two
temples worshipped them in one day. This continued for a long time until due to some sins of the worshipper, Lord Shiva became displeased with him and stood blocking the way as huge sky-kissing mountain, which is said to be modern Nilkantha.
