Then appears the mountain that is not only prominent in sight but also in spiritually - Gauri-Shankar. Lord Shiva and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, at the proud height of 7,134 m and the summit had a history of unsuccessful attempts till 1979.Gauri-Shankar is sharp and very conspicuous during the mountain flight.
