We have compiled a top ten list of the must climb mountains from all over the world. From Mount Everest in Nepal to Mount Aconcagua in Argentina, the world’s greatest mountains urge the fit and fearless to scale their slopes. While some of these massive peaks require technical talent, others merely require stamina and a fear of heights. Amazing mountain beauty, a sense of adventure, and morning summit vistas are all included, while responsibly organized vacations also tread softly on the slopes and ensure porters are fairly compensated and adequately prepared.
Well, let’s get straight to the count-down of our favourite mountain climb list in the whole world.
Mont Blanc, France
Climbing experience is required to get to the top of this 4,810m peak, which is known as the mother of all European massifs. You’ll need ice picks, crampons, and alpine abilities because it’s covered in snow and ice all year. Although summiting takes three days, a week-long excursion allows you to prepare. Those who suffer from vertigo should not apply.
Best time to climb: June, July, and August
Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
To reach the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, you’ll need a lot of stamina and drive, but no technical abilities are required, as this is more of a hike than a climb. There are several routes up Mt Kilimanjaro, each with its own set of advantages, leading from green cultivated lower slopes to the ice and snow of the summit at 5,895 meters.
Best time to climb: All Year-round, except during the rains of April, May, and November
Our top selling trip: Kilimanjaro Climb, Lemosho Route
Mount Aconcagua, Argentina
Although it is the tallest peak outside of Asia at 6,961 meters, the major route up is not technically difficult. That is not to argue that it is simple! Not at all. This is a physically demanding endeavor, made more difficult by the high altitude and inclement weather. You can do it if you’re fit and have some experience walking and camping in remote alpine places.
Best time to climb: Mid December until the end of January
Mount Kenya, Kenya
Africa’s second tallest peak has stunning flora and animals, ever-changing landscapes, and significantly fewer trekkers than Mount Kilimanjaro. You’ll need strong fitness, a sleeping bag, and a sense of adventure to reach the hikers’ top of Point Lenana, but no technical climbing experience is required to climb Mount Kenya.
Best time to climb: December to March and July to mid-October
Mount Toubkal, Morocco
Mount Toubkal is a difficult climb that is best suited to fit hikers with some mountain expertise. Because the top reaches 4,176m, climbers are rewarded with spectacular vistas across the plains to Marrakech and the pre-Sahara. Do you only have a long weekend available? This walk may be completed in three days, but weeklong expeditions are also available.
Best time to climb: All Year round, but expect snow from November to April, requiring climbing in crampons
Base Camp, at 5,364 meters, is nearly half the height of Everest. Although no technical skills are required to reach there, considerable fitness is required to cope with the 13 days of rigorous ascents and descents, as well as the high altitude. Head upward from Base Camp to Kala Patthar for vistas of Everest, or west into the Gokyo Valley to see the Gokyo Lakes and pass the 5,420m Cho La Pass.
Best time to climb: Anytime apart from the months of May to mid-September monsoon
Pico Turquino, Cuba
Pico Turquino, Cuba’s highest peak, is reached through a two-day climb through pristine rainforest in the beautiful Sierra Maestra Mountains, where Fidel Castro housed his hidden mountain headquarters. Hikes along the Pico Turquino route might be difficult, but keep a lookout for colorful birds of paradise along the way.
Best time to climb: October to April
Mount Kinabalu, Borneo
As you climb higher and the mist lifts, the view changes from verdant rainforest to bare rock on the way up Kinabalu in the state of Sabah in Borneo. After a day of hiking, you’ll arrive at a quaint mountain cottage, where you may recover before climbing the top in time to witness the dawn. There is also a via ferrata trail that leads up the mountain.
Best time to visit: Year round
Cayambe Volcano, Ecuador
Climbers love Cotopaxi, although it’s sometimes closed due to volcanic activity. Instead, climb Cayambe, a 5,790m volcano that may be paired with Pichincha (4,784m) and Iliniza North (5,126m) for a six-day trek in the Andes. Although no prior mountaineering expertise is required, guided ascents will involve ice climbing training.
Best time to visit: Year-round
Poon Hill, Nepal
If you wish to hike in Nepal but don’t have the time to visit Everest Base Camp or Annapurna, this is an excellent option. Four days of hiking will take you to the top of Poon Hill (3210m), from which you will have a panoramic view of the Annapurna range below you.
Best time to visit: September/October
