Mount Machapuchare is one of the adventures peak in the Himalayas region, which is also known as “Fish Tail Mountain”. It is situated at an elevation of 6,993 meters (22,943 ft.) near the Annapurna Himalayas of north-central Nepal. It significantly below the Mt. Everest, but this mountain is certainly as famous peaks as Mount Annapurna range and Mount Manaslu, both in the 8,000 meters which is not too away from this mount.
Fish Tail Mountain is a sacred peak in the Hindu religion, associated with the god Shiva. Lord Shiva is supposed to live on the peak, which evidently gets is the name from the shape of the summit seen from a certain angle. As one of the last places on Earth where human beings had never set foot and naturally, it was a target for Western mountaineers, particularly the British, who had conquered the big Kahuna of no-humans-allowed places–Mt. Everest–in 1953. In fact, it was a member of that expedition, one Wilfrid Noyce, who came the closest anybody ever has to the summit on a 1957 expedition. The king of Nepal had asked Noyce to respect Hindu religious customs and not set foot on the summit.
Machhapuchhre mountain is really one of the very few places left on our planet where no human has ever set foot. It would be romantic and wonderful to suggest unquestionably that it is, but sadly it may not be true. It appears to be an open secret in climbing circles that a New Zealand climber named Bill Denz climbed the mountain, alone, sometime in the early 1980s. He also seems to have made a few other illegal climbs in his career before he died on Manaslu in 1983. The truth about whether he really did set foot on the peak of Fish Tail Mountain or not.
The environmental impact of alpine climbing is becoming much more experienced–especially on heavily-trafficked sites like Everest, which is being completely ruined by climbers, according to a recent National Geographic article–Machapuchare’ s religious status may work an environmental benefit by leaving it as the only pristine mountain left in the Himalayas.
The greatest attraction of this mountain is its shape, like a Fish Tail. Hence, it is also known as Mt. Fishtail or Machhapuchhre in Nepali. Another interesting thing about this mountain is that it can be seen from all four directions, South face from Pokhara, West face from Ghandruk, North face from Annapurna Base Camp and East face from Bandipur, which is very rare in most of the mountain peaks.
Though climbing on the mountain has been restricted, for it’s considered sacred by the locals but to see it’s magnificence view many tourists and visitors came all over the world.
Mount Machapuchare is situated at the eastern boundary of the Annapurna Sanctuary with sub-ranges of Himalayas north-central in Nepal.
