Mount Fuji, Japan.

Mount Fuji is one of the world’s most stunning mountains. It’s easy to believe that when you take a look at the picture above, but you should go and visit it for yourself if you’re still doubtful. It’s the highest volcano in Japan, but don’t worry; it’s been dormant for a long time. It’s one of Japan’s ‘Three Holy Mountains’, and you’ll see why they view it as something special when you climb it for yourself. The sheer magnitude of this natural monument is truly something to behold. The area around Mount Fuji is utterly unique too. Make sure you visit Lake Kawaguchiko. It’s a stunning area that offers a breathtaking view of Mount Fuji, but don’t let that distract you from the natural beauty of the lake itself.



Lake Mountain, Australia.

Whilst it might not have the same name power as Mount Fuji, Lake Mountain is certainly one of the most spectacular mountains in the world. Located in the state of Victoria, this snow-topped structure makes for an absolutely fantastic climb. It’s also a cross-country ski resort if you fancy skiing as well as hiking. But the best thing about this mountain is that it’s situated at the heart of one of the most intriguing parts of Australia. You might want to visit some of the wonderful nearby towns to see what they have to offer. You could take a look at how gentrification is changing Footscray. This small suburb of Melbourne offers festivals, trading markets, and other wonderful things. The city isn’t too far from Lake Mountain either. Plus, there are plenty of great transport links.


Mount Titlis, Switzerland.

Switzerland is a country that’s known for its natural beauty. It offers plenty of fantastic walking and climbing experiences for hikers. There are numerous forests, lakes, and mountains that you should explore. Mount Titlis, of course, is the cherry on top of a perfect cake. If you’re looking for a challenge that offers an amazing reward, then this is the mountain you need to ascend. It’s a mountain of the Uri Alps, and it’s the highest summit of the range north of the Susten Pass.

Again, the area surrounding Mount Titlis is worth exploring too. You should explore Titlis Bride; that’s a stunning site to visit. That’s the beauty of Switzerland; they leave so much of its beautiful landscapes completely untouched so as to preserve the natural wonder of their proud nation. Of course, there are some manmade attractions in the area. You might want to check out the SnowXPark when you tire of hiking and want to try some slightly more challenging snow-based activities. The Tal Museum in Engelberg is well worth exploring too. The mountain is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this part of Switzerland.
