Stock Photo Description
Stock photo of Fishtail Peak a Himalayan mountain otherwise known locally as Mount Machhapuchhre or Machapuchare in the Nepali Himalayas with Tibetan prayer flags fluttering in the wind in the foreground. A striking landscape image of an incredibly shaped Himalayan peak. Fishtail Peak is just one of the many mountainous national landmarks in the Royal Kingdom of Nepal and is located among the Annapurna region of the Himalayas. The elevation of Machapuchare is 6,993 metres and remains unclimbed and it is not permissible to do so due to it being claimed as sacred and off limits to climbers although in 1957 there had been a failed attempt.
