It's fantastic indeed, and completely virgin, this mountain is off limits to climbers for its religious importance.

Well, there was a climber who said that he climbed it illegally, but there's no proof of that and in Nepal nobody believes in that story.

It's like an enormous heart in the mountain! Why is it religiously important?

There are several mountains in the himalaya that are sacred to the locals ( that believe they are the abode of Gods ) and forbidden fro climbers.

Thank you, this is one of the best views of the Annapurna base camp trek. The mountain is very close, and the summit is 4000 meters above your head!
