This panoramic view of a portion of the Himalayan Ranges was taken on the slope of Gun Hill (7,533 ft or 2,296 m) near Mussoorie, India. On a clear day, the snow-capped Himalayan peaks can easily be observed from here, though they're nearly 50 mi (80 km) distant. The peaks looming above the foothills in the mid-ground include Gangotri (left center), Bandarpunch (right center), Nanda Devi (25,643 ft or 7,816 m), the highest Indian Himalayan Mountain. Photo taken in the autumn of 2008.
