Mountains panoramic landscape view from a ridge above the Auli ski resort near Joshimath (India)

Looks amazing in high resolution. You can see sheep, and my two Russian friends standing on the top of the hill.­

I hiked to that ridge (elevation of 3,500 m - 11,500 ft).­ and got an amazing panoramic view of the high mountains all around, and patches of snow on the pastures.­

I did the first part of the hike with a group of nice Russian bikers that I met in Joshimath, but they gave up before the top, so I did the rest of the hike solo.­
