Rajan, the mountain is spectacular but I think there's too much rather uninteresting foreground. I assume there's more detail in the low range to the right (which looks very black on my monitor) than is visible in the jpeg.
The mountain was photographed from quite some distance. While the foreground, per se, is uninteresting it provides context of the desert surrounding the mountain.
Yes, there's detail in the blacks. The darkest it gets is L=3 (in L*a*b space) and much of it is a good deal more than that.
