Top 10 Toughest Mountains In The World

Conquering a peak must be one of the most challenging things to do in your life. The feeling of having reached the summit and being high above the rest of the people is definitely something only a few get to experience but that we should all try to do. No matter how exhausting climbing the mountain was, all that will disappear when you finally reach the top that will surely overlook other peaks and will allow you to see how tiny the people and towns below you are. Getting ready to conquer a peak is not that simple and you will have to be sure that everything is prepared for your adventure. Let’s see which the best ten mountains to climb are.

10- Damavand in Iran

Mountaineers claim that the Damavand, which is only a part of the extensive Elburz range located in Iran, is one of the greatest peaks to conquer. You will note that the peaks are all connected by thermal water sources from which a constant flow of mist comes out because there’s an inactive volcano below them. If you are able to reach the top you will be more than 5,500 metres higher than the rest of the world.

9- Annapurna in Nepal

This Nepali mountain is actually is ridge of the Himalayas and it has the most striking sceneries in the world. Since this is part of the highest mountains on earth, the biodiversity and geological features make this peak the perfect challenge for climbers who want to take their passion one step forward. When you are on top of the mountain you will see how the sunrise brightens up all the landscape and lets you feel how amazing things are.

8- Denali in Alaska

Climbers agree that if you are able to get to the summit this is the most impressive mountain to conquer. The Denali is located in the United States and it has a height of more than 6,000 metres. The conquest of the Denali is not easy but rather challenging but it is still is worth your effort as you will have the possibility to see how the skyline changes into amazing forms that only a few have been able to enjoy.

7- Citlaltepetl and Iztaacihuatl in Mexico

These are actually two dormant volcanoes that are close to one another and let you see how amazing the natural world is. There is something in the two mountains that makes climbers want to try them. If you have a look at the two peaks before you climb them you will understand why the locals refer to them as the Sleeping Woman. Reaching the top of these snowed covered peaks is not as difficult as getting to the summit of other peaks but it will surely provide you with the challenge you want to face.

6- Mount Elbrus

Mount Elbrus is located in the European and Asian borders so you will have the chance to see both continents from the top. Conquering it is not really simple and this is mainly because the ground is not the same in all parts of the mount. Nevertheless, the effort you will have to do to conquer the mount is nothing compared to the feeling of being able to see countries in two continents at the same time as you reach the top.

5- The Matterhorn

This Swiss Alps peak is not stranger to mountaineers from all over the world. It is the place to go if you have a passion for climbing because it offers you the chance to clamber different mountains before reaching the summit. You will note that the Matterhorn has the shape of an upturned triangle what makes it even more enticing for climbers.

4- Mount Everest

There’s no other mount in the world that is as high as the Everest. Nepali people call the Everest Sagarmatha and the first person to try to conquer the mount did so in the early 1950s. It’s been more than fifty years since that and people are still trying to conquer the highest peak on earth. If you are up for it, the South side of the Everest doesn’t seem to be as difficult as the North side to climb and at the same time those who have conquered it claim that you will enjoy better landscapes if you climb from the South side.

3- The Andes

Even when the Andes is a very extensive mountain range that goes all along the coast of the pacific Ocean, the best place to climb it is in Peru. All the peaks seem to be connected and the flora and fauna found in the mountains make it even more enticing. If you try to conquer the Andes in Peru you will be surprised to see the Inca Trails as you make your way to the summit. Don’t forget to take your camera with you because the scenery will take you aback.

2- Kilimanjaro

The highest peak in Africa is world known because it has a smooth summit and also because it provides an out-of-this-world climbing adventure. The most attractive conquest mountaineers go for is that of a volcanic area that lets them realize how magnificent the peak is when you get to the top. There is an impressive biodiversity and the one in the volcanic area is really special.

1- Mount Khuiten

It is not difficult to lose your way in this peak and this is not because reaching the top is complicated or because there are lots of puzzling paths along the way up but because the scenery it has is jaw dropping. You will be able to feel a deep connection with the natural world when you climb this mount just like when you conquer some other peaks around the world.
