An adventure on a mountain should be something you should try at least once in a lifetime. We know most people are afraid of height, but if you can bundle up that fear at the expense of the incredible moment you’ll experience, we think it’s worth a try.
We recommend the following mountains which we know will definitely become a long-term souvenir for you in your entire lifetime.
1. Pico Bolivar
This beautiful mountain located in Venezuela should be included on your list. Pico Bolivar is the highest mountain in Venezuela. The famous attraction was named after Simon Bolivar who is a hero for Venezuelan independence. To get to Pico Bolivar, you need to ride the Merida Cable Car which is the longest and the highest cable car in the world.
2. Mount Kilimanjaro
Africa’s highest mountain located in Tanzania will definitely give you the aura of an exclusive adventure. Mount Kilimanjaro is also one of the world’s Seven Summits (the highest mountain peaks on each continent). It’s also the easiest to climb successfully. It’s a non-technical hike that doesn’t require any mountaineering experience.
3. Mount Kinabalu
Kinabalu is the biggest mountain in Malaysia and it’s a wonderful feat of nature, standing tall between the trees. The mountain’s lower slopes are farmed up to about 2,000 feet (600 m). We know you have a wonderful time here as well.
4. Pico de Orizaba
Pico de Orizaba volcano (Volcán Citlaltépetl) is a large active stratovolcano, Mexico’s highest mountain and the highest volcano of North America. It is located at the southern end of Citlaltépetl–Cofre de Perote Volcanic Range, and the only volcano in this area with historic activity.
5. Mauna Kea
Standing 4200 meters tall, this impressive mountain in Hawaii is a must-visit. Mauna Kea, one of six volcanoes that have formed the island of Hawaii, is the tallest mountain on Earth at 9,966 meters (32,696 feet, 6.2 miles). This is 1,116 meters (3,661 feet, 0.7 miles) taller than Mount Everest and roughly the same height in the atmosphere where commercial airplanes fly.
