Himalaya Range PS 01Himalayan range, Uttarakhand, India.

To me, this image gives a real sense of scale.  You can see the middle ranges and their height at the bottom of the image. But these look positively small when compared to the peak above – approx 7800 metres in height (still 1000 metres – 1 km – less than Mt Everest).

This part of the Himalayas has great opportunities for walking and also for wildlife viewing, including possible sightings of the snow leopard.
