Skywatch Friday - Himalayan Peaks, Badrinath

All of us have read about the horrible floods that has hit the state of Uttarakhand in North India resulting in death of thousands of people. We pray for the souls of those who perished in these floods and hope the missing ones are traced. 

Uttarkhand and Himalayas is a mesmerising place. It is called "Dev Bhoomi" or "Abode of Gods" for no small reason. You get humbled in front of the nature, in front these mighty mountains. These are the mountains which sustain life in this great country.

These peaks were just opposite the hotel we were staying during our detour to Badrinath - one of the four holiest shrines for Hindus - when we did Valley Of Flowers trek last year. The weather was playing hide and seek and the sky was over cast with slight drizzle. Suddenly, when the envelope of mist disappeared we clicked the peak glittering in the afternoon sun. 

On a clear day one can see the famous Nilkant peak from Badrinath
