Good for: Most beautiful mountain
- Mt Machhapuchhare
Lonely Planet review for Mt Machhapuchhare
The Himalaya skyline is dominated by Mt Machhapuchhare ('Fish Tail' in Nepali) - at 6997m, it's actually one of the smaller peaks of the Annapurna Range, but it looks taller as it's closer to Pokhara. If you walk for a few days along the Jomsom Trek you'll see the second summit that gives the mountain its name, hidden away behind the main peak.
