Request - Kindly mention name of peak (or unknown) and where the photo was taken from
Thread for different peaks captured by the lenses - small and big. (both peaks and lenses!)
Basically need also arose from unidentified peaks in photos taken - so experts could help us feel good by IDing the peaks we have seen, but didn't know!

First one up -

Trishul with the Roopkund trail in the foreground. The red circle marks the location of Roopkund.



Taken from - midway of Bekaltal and Brahmatal camps! (lunch point)
Sar Pass Trek , Rohtang, Munnar, Badrinath Kedarnath, Vaishnodevi, Goa, VOF, Kedarkantha, Kuari Pass, Brahmatal Trek

Nice snap Earthian!

Our trek leader wouldn't let us go for the sunrise! Apparently the whole group wasn't capable of walking up to the summit point in the middle of the night. (and there was some truth in that too!)

Well, i have to confess that this photograph was taken from Ranikhet, more than 80 kms away (as the crow flies)

Very nice pictures! Keep them coming...

Perhaps this is the right thread to ask a question that's been bugging me: In the International Mountain Museum in Pokhara has some fabulous photographs of the top peaks - including the top 10. A number of the best photographs (including the big wide angle pictures that adorn the museum were taken by a Japanese photographer I forgot the name of. If anyone has some information on this topic, I'd be grateful.

Many thanks!

It was opened by Ms. Tabei Junko, famous mountaineer and it holds information on all 14 of the 8000+ meter peaks.

Unable to get the name of the photographer you are looking for - may be someone else could help.

Hi Snotty,

Thank you! Been there and liked it quite a bit. The mountain photographs I saw there was some of the best I have seen in my life. That's why I posted my question. Trying to see if I can get some of them for my home but it doesn't help that I forgot the name of the photographer. [There are many different photographers involved but one Japanese photographer K. Ot... or something like that stood out.]

But - don't want hijack your thread. Just mentioned my selfish question in case anyone here know the answer...

Many thanks!

Choti Bahurani peak in the back ground - name as given by the guide - google doesn't recognize it.

It was in the direction of and beyond Pindari glacier, when seen from Brahmatal summit point.

Does anyone know about it?





To the left of these peaks, in line with the mountain range in the foreground would be the Maiktoli and Mrigthuni peaks.

Himal is snow in Sanskrit, I believe. I have also seen group of peaks being called Himal - so perhaps it stands for massif.

Anyway, I share below my favorite link on Himalayas. You can see the photographs of the top mountains in it.

Peak-tures! (photos of mountain peaks)

The Arwa tower is the one on the left, but cannot exactly pin point the avalanche peak. Any help?
Also are there any other peaks that are visible in the pictures?
