The highest mountain peaks in the world


Mountains are wonders of the world, which attract many brave souls and travelers from all over the world.

Everest. Nepal, China

Jomolungma is the second name of the highest point on our planet. Its height is 8848 meters. Mount Everest is located between Nepal and China. The ascents are made by the bravest and most enduring, as the ascent of Mount Everest lasts about two months and for many it can end sadly due to the incredible difficulty of the path and the danger of weather conditions.

Chogori (K2). Pakistan, China

The absolute height of the Chogori mountain peak is 8614 meters. It is located between Pakistan and China. This is the second mountain peak in the world in terms of climbing difficulty and therefore it is called "Wild Mountain". It is the highest point of the Karakoram mountain system. Chogori became the last eight-thousandth mountain in the world conquered in winter.

Kangchenjunga. India, Nepal

Kanchenjunga is a mountain range in the Himalayas. The main peak of the massif is Mount Kanchenjunga, the third highest eight—thousandth mountain in the world (8586 meters). It is located between India and Nepal. There is a legend that Kanchenjunga Mountain is a woman, and it amazes all women who try to climb to its top.

Nanga Parbat. Nepal, Pakistan

Nanga Parbat is the third most dangerous mountain peak in the world. It is located between Nepal and Pakistan. Its height is 8,126 meters and it has become dangerous not only because of avalanches and landslides, but also because of the tense political situation in Pakistan.
