The majestic view of Annapurna mountain range and the Machapuchare " Fishtail "

Pokhara valley is dominated by the Himalayan panorama which are seen at their best mirroring on the surface of the Fewa Lake.They are just about 50 km away.The Annapurna range is a 55 km long massif series of peaks of which Annapurna-I the world's 10th-highest summit stands at 8,091 meters.
The most beautiful Machhapuchhre( Fishtail) is the mountain (6993 meters) in Annapurna range.It has a double summit that resembles the tail of a fish, hence it is called "FishTail." It is also nicknamed the "Matterhorn of Nepal".Fishtail is famous for its “purity” as no man has ever climbed it. It is forbidden to climb as it is revered by the local people as sacred to god.
I took these pictures in the month of October and November,the best time for the majestic view of the Himalayas.
