Photographer's Note

Machhapuchhre (6993m) at sunrise from Sarangkot above Fewa lake in Pokhara. This beautiful mountain, that rises about 24 km due north of Pokhara has become a symbol of the stupendous scenery that Nepal has to offer. Nepalis and visitors alike are awe-struck by its nature-sculpted pinnacle of rock and ice that dominates the Annapurna range. What is most impressive is that the terrain rises from a sub-tropical Pokhara, with its banana and bougainvillea at 900 metres above sea level, to nearly 7,000 metres all within a horizontal distance that would take 30 minutes to drive if there were a highway. Machhapuchhre translates as fishtail.
