Stock Photo Description
Stock photo of a snow mountain in the heart of the Indian Himalaya. A beautiful white mountains landscape photography image taken at high altitude during the spring when the lower slopes are starting to show signs of melting snow. Many of the mountains of the Himalaya at high altitude can be placed in the class of snow mountain due to the snow being perpetually present with freezing temperatures at such heights. The lower Himalayan foothills and the people who live there are fortunate enough in spring and summer to be blessed with warmer temperatures and a big thaw which allows coniferous forests to grow again and crops to be planted on the steep hillsides.
