Summary expansion
Most of the images show views of important Himalayan peaks, including Nanda Kot, Nanda Devi, and Sukharam. There are also several images of Trisul, a group of three mountain peaks, the highest of which was first climbed in 1907. Trisul was likely the highest mountain in the world to have been climbed at the time. In addition, it was the first successful climb to use supplemental oxygen in mountaineering. Five photos capture local people, architecture such as the bridge of Bagashwar, bungalows at Bhowali, and a wayside temple near Loharkhet. Two photos depict the trekkers climing the Pindari Glacier, first surveyed in 1906 by geologists G. de P. Cotter and J. Coggin Brown
