Fog creeping up Machapucchare Base Camp in Nepal

A hiker admires the magnificent peak of Machapucchare, also known as Fish-Tail mountain due to its distinct curved top. At the same time, fog is steadily creeping up to catch him, which will obscure any possible views. This was taken en route to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal. Annapurna Base Camp is a popular trekking destination in Nepal that sees thousands of visitors every year.
