Kangchendzonga and the range.
Also spelt as Kanchanjangha or Kanchenjunga(8586 m).
Kang-chen-dzo-nga or Yang-chhen-dzö-nga are four Tibetan words. In Sikkim they are interpreted as “Five Treasuries of the Great Snow.”
This mountain is a religious place to the local people as it holds an important status in mythology.
Kangchendzonga is the third highest peak of the world. It was considered as the highest peak till 1852, when GTSI (Great Trigonometric Survey of India) declared Mount Everest as the highest mountain.
Fatal accidents on first two expeditions (1929 and 1931) gave Kangchendzonga a reputation for unusual danger and difficulty. No one else attempted to climb it until 1954. In 1955, a British expedition led by Charles Evans reached the top, but the team stopped within a few yards of the actual summit to honour the religious beliefs and wishes of the Sikimmese.
Peaks visible in the picture are ---
from Right : Narsing, Pandim and Kangchenjunga in the middle,
then Talung, Kabru and Kumbhakarna.

The beauty of the Himalaya is magic, especially at a moment like this when the last (or first?) rays of the sun hit the highest peaks and turn them into gold. This is a well composed and well exposed photo in four layers.

Marvellous image from high up in the Himalayas, battling high altitude and sub zero temperatures. Gorgeous the way the dawn light is creeping over the snow peaks yet it is still so cold and what can I say about the pinkish red hot! You must be over the moon with this shot and judging by this shot it was worth the hard work. My compliments
P/s tx to your positive crit on my last upload.

Amazing view!It is almost if the mountains are on fire! Lovely done
Noel_Byrne (22128) 2013-12-01 8:40
What a sight this is! I can only imagine how aw inspiring it is to stand here and witness this for yourself, so thank you for taking the time to take the image of it too. The light has illuminated the mountain tops with a beautiful gold hue, and the raising of the light from dark to bright from bottom to top adds tremendous depth. Really nicely done, thanks for sharing.
All the best
