30 days with Machhapuchhre, A Photo Blog

Fishtail over the clouds, Few lake Pokhara

Machhapuchhre (माछापुछ्रे), the Fishtail Mountain vibrantly seen from Pokhara, lies in the Annapurna Himalayan Range (Coordinates 28°29′42″N 83°56′57″E). I tried to cover some photographs of this mountain from my home in Pokhara last October-November over an entire range of the month, but since winter had just started there were many days when the beauty of the Himalayas could not be seen.

Trivia: Machhapuchhre is the only mountain in Nepal which is not allowed for conquering!

Day 1: Machhapuchhre looks awesome, maybe I’ve been watching at this beauty after a long time. Whatever, Fishtail is always enchantable to most of us. Below is the typical picture of how it is seen from almost all homes in Pokhara city.

Since many of the photos are already meta GPS coordinates embedded (not a good word for this for sure), Facebook can automatically determine the place, but asking user to verify is surely a good thing.


This screenshot from Facebook places show stories on places shared, places lived and other location based life event, followed by the photos taken at various places.
