The peaks easily can be seen are Trishul , Nandakot and Nandadevi depending on the weather you get. It is also said that the range looks amazing in moonlight on a clear sky day. We missed the sight because of clouds, but have seen the pictures and it is breathtaking view for sure.
Trishul (Hindi: त्रिशूल) is a group of three Himalayan mountain peaks of westernKumaun, with the highest (Trishul I) reaching 7120m. The three peaks resemble a trident – in Hindi/Sanskrit, Trishul, trident, is the weapon of Shiva. The Trishul group forms the southeast corner of the ring of peaks enclosing the Nanda DeviSanctuary, about 15 kilometres (9 mi) west-southwest of Nanda Devi itself. The main peak, Trishul I, was the first peak over 7,000 m (22,970 ft) to have ever been climbed, in 1907. (Source: Wikipedia)
Another look at the range during the day.
All the hotels in this small place provides Mountain View and its no brainer to see all guests setting up their cameras 15 mins before sunrise. And some are lucky to get a good view of Trishul during sunset.
We were lucky to catch this golden look of Trishul as it was a cloudy day and Trishul was visible for few minutes. It is one of my favorite pic from the entire trip.
Besides the Himalayan view there isn’t much to do here. You can visit Gandhi Ashram where Gandhiji had spent some time. One interesting place is Lakshmi Ashram, it is a center run by local women and dedicated for social service and upliftment of women. Gandhiji’s disciple, Sarlaben (Kaitherine Heileman) spent her life here doing social service. This ashram helps local girls with school education and also help them to enroll for college. Besides studies girls are trained in various vocational courses, farming and other basic chores.
Finally my two cents: Do visit this ashram and spend some time with the girls. Don’t forget to buy their homegrown items and specially their herbal/green (basil) tea.
