From the artist’s comments:
This beautiful mountain is Yungmaijung, a physical manifestation of the bodhisatva of ‘Wisdom’ in Tibetan Buddhism. After researching the writings of Joseph Rock, I believe this mountain was the inspiration for Karakul Peak and the valley of Shangri La in the famous book ‘Lost Horizon’. It is an area mostly unknown to westerners and the peak was unclimbed as of 2008. I double processed a single RAW image to maintain some detail in the shadows.
