Sougata made today's Photo of the Day at Sandakphu, in Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. He describes the view in great detail on his Flickr page. An excerpt of that is below.
"Sandakphu 3636 mtr. is 58 km. from Darjeeling and commands one of the most spectacular views. In the foreground is a great basin set in the midst of the hills, the slopes covered with rhododendrons and silver fir trees. In the background is continuous barrier of snowy mountains, the most prominent of which is Kanchenjunga."
