As seen on the National Geographic News stars trail high over Nanda Devi, one of the highest peaks in India, in a long-exposure picture from northern India. A World Heritage Site, the mountain is renowned for its stark beauty and fields of alpine flowers. Some 7,817 m (25,646 ft) tall, the mountain is famed in Hindu lore.
