The Mystical Fishtail Mountain

The Fishtail Mountain commonly known as Machhapuchhre is one of the most beautiful peaks of Nepal. The second highest peak in the Annapurna Himalayan Range got its name from its top that resembles the tail of a fish.

Standing proudly at the height of 6,993m, some 25 km north of Pokhara, it is considered sacred by the locals bonding it with Lord Shiva. Hence, the climb is restricted here and one can only wish to climb its summit. The beautiful peak covered in thick snow blanket is a mystical sight to see.
