HIMALAYA BOOK - Inside cover photo by Forbes on 28 July 2008 10:47pm
 
HELP! I can't find any references to the photo inside both the front and back covers of the Himalaya book (UK edition if that makes a difference). It's got to be the most incredible view in the world! Any ideas/tips anyone?

It looks like a photo of the Himalayan mountains taken from the Tibetan plateau. All of the highest mountains seem to be too flat topped to be Everest. If the highest peaks are 8000ers then Dhauligiri or Gasherbrum may be contenders. I have a couple of similar panoramas and may be able to identify the higher mountains from them. I'll get back to you (unless anyone with better Himalayan knowledge than me recognises some of the specific mountains definitely).

Looking at Michael's route map, Kangchenjunga is a possibility for the massif to the right of the photograph.

After researching all my appropriate Himalaya memorabilia I can't find anything to definitely identify the area in the photograph so the first sentence of my first post in this thread is the best I can do.
