There are mountains all around the world that will wow and astound you. From stunning peaks to gorgeous views to beautiful valleys, mountains have always been a thing of beauty and power. Check out four of (what I think) are the most stunning mountains from around the world!
1. Matterhorn, the Alps (Switzerland and Italy)
A huge mountain at 14,692 feet, the Matterhorn straddles Switzerland and Italy as part of the Alps mountain range. You can definitely go hiking and mountain climbing, and it was first ascended in 1865. You can take a cable car or a train ride and just be in awe of the amazing jagged peaks that remind me of the Paramount logo.

2. Mount Kailash, Kailash Range (China)
At 21,778 feet, this rounded mountain is very unique and really cool. You can find it in China as part of the Kailash mountain range. It’s considered a holy mountain and anyone who treks it is usually on a spiritual journey. You can certainly do that, or just go and admire its beauty. Whatever is best for you.

3. Scafell Pike, Southern Fells (England)
The tallest mountain in England, Scafell Pike stands at only 3,209 feet (England isn’t really known for its mountains). Unlike the others on this list, this mountain isn’t topped with snow. But it makes a gorgeous place to hike, camp, or mountain climb. And there are miles of beautiful countryside all around. You’ll find this mountain in the Lake District National Park.

4. Mount Kilimanjaro
This dormant volcano located in Tanzania is an awesome place to visit. It has three volcanic cones and is the tallest mountain in Africa. It’s 19,341 feet above sea level and its summit was first reached in 1889. You can go mountain climbing but it can be dangerous so you go with an experienced mountain climber and guide. This is the largest freestanding mountain the world with a permanent snow cap. Check out this site if you’re interested in climbing it for yourself.
