The west face of Talliraju
Here is the west side of Talliraju from our aclimitization hike. We went all the way to a pass to the right of the peak (out of the photo), this is on a very scenic trekking loop. I believe the easiest route on this peak is the left hand ridge, which looks quite hairy!

One thing that amazed me was how small this stream was. It is draining the entire basin you can see and yet you can practically jump across it. There is also no trace of glacial silt.

SIDE TRIP: I also took a telephoto shot of this face (below). Click on the small image below to see the spectacular full size version:
