24 Hauntingly Beautiful Photos Of Mountains That Will Give You Wanderlust.

The Earth is full of beautiful places and people, but Mother Nature did an awesome job at creating herself one amazing body made of mountains, rocky monoliths, and rock face cliffhangers that are bound to make any travel eager to explore. Whether it's about taking a selfie in an icy or rocky mountain peak or scaling one of the various geological wonders of the world, people can't get enough of these places. Some go to snowboard, while others just go there to bask in what Mother Nature created, from the tip of the mountain all across the rocky terrain, right down to the ridges and crevices. So here are 24 of the most epic mountains around the world.

#1. Cerro Standhardt, Argentina

Cerro Standhart is a region disputed by Argentina and Chile. At an elevation of 8,809 feet, it's surrounded by three other mountains that include Punta Herron, Torre Egger, and Cerro Torre. But reaching the summit is difficult given the constant strong winds. If you make it you'll see mushrooms of rime ice.

#2. Grand Tetons, Wyoming, USA

It's the highest mountain in Grand Teton National Park and has plenty of routes, so even a cattle train, which is common, won't be a problem. Mountain climbers with no previous experience manage to reach the summit, and has five ski routes that require at least one rappel.

#3. Huangshan Mountains, Anhui Province, China

The scenery is unforgettable with its seas of clouds, white rime, and the sun rising over the mountain. It's also a place where many Buddhist temples were built, which has made it a major tourist attraction. It also has several peaks with stones wrapped around stunning vegetation like pine trees and peach trees.

#4. Chartreuse Mountains, Alps, France

The Chartreuse Mountain range is located on one of the largest cities in the area called Voiron. Aside from the limestone-dominated area, there are also plenty of cave passages underneath the hills that are worth exploring. Including the famous 60 km long Dent de Crolles, for those of you who prefer to stay grounded.

#5. Cerro Torre, Southern Patagonian Ice Field, Argentina

One of four mountains in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field has an elevation of 3,128 meters and you can enjoy a 4-day hiking trip around Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre too. You'd actually get to trek in an area disputed by Chile and Argentina. But the icy blue mountains are so worth a selfie or two.
