Facing you are Rajrambha(6895 mts), Chaudhara, Suitilla and several others. But the best view is towards the west. The entire northern wall of the Nanda Devi Sanctuary is clearly visible, with the twin peaks dominating the heights on the left. You could spend hours counting the peaks and staring at this view with a sense of wonder. We camp at Ralam after a steep descend of 5 kms.
