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 mounds of rock, dirt and ice on our planet.
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 tallest mountain in the world. It’s located in the Mahalangur mountain range. There are many other incredible mountain ranges and personally we also love Annapurna!
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. Truly incredible to see!

Ladahk, Indian Himalayas
Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, 4,600m high, is the world’s highest freestanding mountain.
On this 12-day adventure, you will be pushed to your limit as you climb through five different climatic zones with the support of experienced guides. Trekking from cultivated farmlands to lush rainforest, through alpine meadow and across the barren lunar-like landscape to the summit, you’ll witness the incredible sight of the sun rising over the East African plains below.
