It’s no secret Team Inspired love a good mountain. There is no other feeling like standing on the top of a mountain or looking up at a range from a valley. While it’s impossible to pick a favourite, to celebrate #WorldMountainDay, here are 5 of the most stunning mountains of the world.
The Peruvian Andes
Peru inspires wonder at every turn. From high mountains to lush valleys, traditional Quechuan villages and mystical Inca ruins, this beautiful country beams with cultural pride. There’s Sacred Valley, the classic Inca Trail, Lares Valley and of course, stunning Machu Picchu and Huyana Picchu (the mountain perched up behind Machu Picchu). We love Peru!
The Nepalese Himalayas
By day you will experience the majesty of the Himalayas together with a team of local guides and sherpas. At night you will fall asleep in traditional lodges and teahouses in remote Nepalese villages.
Mount Everest is the world’s highest mountain. It’s located in the Mahalangur mountain range. There are many other incredible mountain ranges and personally, we also love Annapurna! You’ll find the altitude is slightly lower on the trek through Annapurna, the scenery is diverse with more opportunities to meet and interact with locals.
The mountains of Bhutan
Tiger’s Nest Monastery (also known as Taktsang Monastery) is a Buddhist temple complex which clings to a cliff, 3,120 meters above the sea level on the side of the upper Paro valley of Bhutan. Of all the mountains of the world, this is truly incredible to see!
