the peaks on view here are the Panchchuli peaks.
The Panchchuli peaks are a group of five snow-capped Himalayan peaks lying at the end of the eastern Kumaon region, near Munsiyari, in Pithoragarh district, Uttarakhand state, India. The peaks have altitudes ranging from 6,334 metres (20,781 ft) to 6,904 metres (22,651 ft). They form the watershed between the Gori and the Darmaganga valleys. Panchchuli is also located on the Gori Ganga-Lassar Yankti divide. The group lies 138 km (86 mi) from Pithoragarh.The five peaks on the Panchchuli massif are numbered from northwest to southeast. The highest peak is Panchchuli II, which was first scaled by an Indo-Tibetan Border Police expedition, led by Mahendra Singh, on 26 May 1973. The group's name is derived the legendary Pandavas's "Five Chulis" (cooking hearths), where they cooked their last meal before proceeding toward their heavenly abode.

But here in the high mountains you are really close to heaven. Gorgeous view of the mountains covered with snow. Blue sky and only this small cloud posing in right place. You are very brave to go there!
have a great New Year

You chose a good angle for this picture, with an interesting framing, clarity and contrast of the mountains especially, good combination between brightness and color contrast

The solitary cloud hugging the peaks adds interest to this shot. Good sharpness and a marvelous high pov. Nice aerial perspective with the fg peaks slightly darker in tone and with lighter ones at the back. A wonderful blue sky. Tfs!
