Perhaps Sir Edmund Hillary – the New Zealand mountaineer and explorer – said it best when he remarked, “It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” No matter how daunting the task, pure human ambition has overcome unconquerable odds to subdue the tallest peaks in the world. If mountains are the “stairway to god’s heart”, we have no doubt stood beside him as equals. The following photoset celebrates the beauty witnessed along the way.

Here are world’s 8 most beautiful mountains.
1. Ama Dablam, Nepal
2. Shivling, India
3. Machhapuchhre, Nepal
4. Matterhorn, Italy/Switzerland
5. Fitz Roy, Argentina/Chile
6. Sajama, Bolivia
7. The Rokies, Canada/US
8. Pumori, Nepal

Ama Dablam – Eastern Nepal

Ama Dablam is a mountain in the Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. The main peak is 6,812 metres (22,349 feet), the lower western peak is 5,563 metres (18,251 ft). Ama Dablam means “Mother and Pearl Necklace” (the perennial hanging glacier is thought of as the pearl).

Shivling – Uttarakhand, India

Shivling is a mountain in the Gangotri Group of peaks in the western Garhwal Himalaya, near the snout of the Gangotri Glacier. It lies in the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand, 6 kilometres (4 mi) south of the Hindu holy site of Gaumukh (the source of the Bhagirathi River). Its name refers to its status as a sacred symbol of the god Shiva.

Machhapuchhare – North-Central Nepal

macchapuchre-3

Machapuchare or Machhaphuchhare is a mountain in the Annapurna Himal of north central Nepal. It is revered by the local population as particularly sacred to the god Shiva, and hence is off limits to climbing.
Machapuchare is at the end of a long spur ridge, coming south out of the main backbone of the Annapurna Himal, that forms the eastern boundary of the Annapurna Sanctuary. Sanctuary is a favorite trekking destination, and the site of the base camps for the South Face of Annapurna and for numerous smaller objectives.) The peak is about 25km north of Pokhara, the main town of the region. 

Matterhorn – Italy/Switzerland

matterhorn-1

matterhorn-2

matterhorn-3

The Matterhorn (German), Cervino (Italian) or Cervin (French), is a mountain in the Pennine Alps. With its 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high summit, lying on the border between Switzerland and Italy, it is one of the highest peaks in the Alps and its 1,200 metres (3,937 ft) north face is one of the three greatest north faces of the Alps.
The mountain overlooks the town of Zermatt in the canton of Valais on the north and Cervinia in the Aosta Valley on the south.
Although not the highest mountain in Switzerland, the Matterhorn is considered as an iconic emblem of the region of the Swiss Alps.

Fitz Roy – Argentina/Chile

fitz-roy-1

fitz-roy-2

fitz-roy-3

Cerro Chaltén, also known as Cerro Fitz Roy or Monte Fitz Roy, is a mountain (‘cerro’) located near the El Chaltén village, in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, in Patagonia, on the border between Argentina and Chile. It has been agreed by the two countries that the international border detours eastwards to pass over the main summit, but a large part of the border to the south of the summit, as far as Cerro Murallón remains undefined.

The name Chaltén comes from a Tehuelche (Aonikenk) word meaning “smoking mountain,” due to a cloud that usually forms in the top of the mountain, and it was considered sacred by them. The mountain is the symbol of the Argentinian Santa Cruz Province, which includes its representation on its coat of arms.

Perito Francisco Moreno named it Fitzroy in 1877, after the Beagle’s captain Robert FitzRoy, who explored some of the area in 1834. It was first climbed in 1952 by French alpinists Lionel Terray and Guido Magnone.

 Sajama – Bolivia

sajama-1

sajama-21

sajama-3

Nevado Sajama is an extinct stratovolcano and the highest peak in Bolivia. The mountain is located in Sajama National Park in the southwest area of the country some 16-24 km (10-15 mi) from the border with Chile. The peak is an isolated cone, but is geologically complex, with lava domes of andesitic and rhyodactic composition overlain by an andesitic stratovolcano. The date of the most recent eruption is uncertain, although Holocene activity is assigned to the volcano by many. Some of the highest growing trees in the world are found on the volcano, where Polylepis tarapacana have been found growing up to 5200m. 

The Rockies – Canada/US

rockies-1

rockies-2

rockies-3

The Canadian Rockies comprise the Canadian segment of the North American Rocky Mountains range. The southern end in Alberta and British Columbia borders Idaho and Montana of the USA. The northern end is at the Liard Plain in British Columbia.

Contrary to popular misconception, the Rockies do not extend into the Yukon or Alaska, or into central British Columbia. North of the Liard River, the Mackenzie Mountains, which are not part of the Rockies, form a portion of the border between the Yukon and the Northwest Territories. The mountain ranges to the west of the Rocky Mountain Trench in southern British Columbia are called the Columbia Mountains and are not considered to be part of the Rockies.

Pumori – Nepal/Tibet

pumori-1

pumori-2

pumori-3

Pumori (or Pumo Ri) is a mountain in the Himalaya on the Nepal-Tibet border. Pumori lies just eight kilometres west of Mount Everest. Pumori, which means “Unmarried Daughter” in the Sherpa dialect, was named by George Mallory. Climbers sometimes refer to Pumori as “Everest’s Daughter”.

    I was in this place, Nepal. I walked up Kala Pattar and saw Everest and Pumori and many of their giant friends. I was alive and never before so humbled. This place became my newest friend and I will cherrish this friendship forever.
