I haven’t posted a Lonely Planet Bluelist in quite some time, but I came across this one while reading the excellent Best Hikes Blog earlier today. It’s Lonely Planet’s Ten Mountains To See Before You Die.
The list include such common icons of mountaineering as Rainier, Kilimanjaro, and Chomolungma (Everest). There are several others that are much less commonly known though such as Machupuchare, in Nepal, a sacred mountain that is forbidden to all climbers, and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in China, which has 18 separate peaks.
It’s a great collection of mountains and one that will help you build your “life list” in case it’s starting to get a little short.
