Kamet (peak on right hand side) with elevation of 7,756 m, is the second highest mountain (after Nanda Devi) in the Garhwal region of India and the 29th highest in the world.
In appearance it resembles a giant pyramid topped by a flat summit area with two peaks.

Stunning photo here of this magnificent peak. The dark foreground and the very imposing size and shape of this mountain really makes for a wonderful shot here. The different shades and layers also add to the overall effect. Just very nicely done.

Nice shot, really. But Yes! This is Nilgiri Parvat, not Kamet. I agree with raduday. Kamet is located in a different range Zanskar which is located behind it. Other peaks of Zanskar range are Mukut, Mana, Abi Gaamin etc.
In many places Nilgiri has been marked as Kamet! My personal experience is the local people only can point Nanda Devi, Hati, Ghora (Ghori) and Palki correctly. Some of them are also confused about pointing Deoban and Mana correctly!
