This is the small village of Raini Chak Lata (India)

The mountain road along the rugged Dhauliganga Valley is not for the faint of heart. The road is often carved off vertical cliffs. Past this village, the road continue up the valley along a very high cliff, on the right side of the steep V-shape valley that can be seen in the background.

This is upstream from Joshimath. The Dhauliganga river is one of the headstreams of the Ganges river.
