Mountains are not just some piece of bumpy lands, they are certainly the glimpse of heavens if it exists somewhere. And we have here picked out few glimpses for you to feel that placid peace. Let’s explore some the mountain peaks you must visit before they go out of existence.
VINICUNCA, CUSCO REGION, PERU
Vinicunca, or the Mountain of Saven Colors, located in the Andes in the Cusco region of Peru. From the Cusco region, it will take 3-hour drive and 6-miles of hiking to get yourselves walking over the rainbow.
The color formed over the mountain has been due to the mixture of melted ice and the minerals present over the land in different compositions as expounded by the HuffPost
The red comes from oxidized iron (aka rust), the yellow is due to the presence of iron sulfide, the purple-ish brown comes from goethite or oxidized limonite, and chlorite is what causes the varying shade of green (no vegetation).
MU CANG CHAI, VIETNAM
“For the words are just symbols, but mental pictures are definitely more than that.”
Mu Cang Cai (MCC) a rural village at the foot of Hoang Lien Son Mountain Range 1,000 meters above sea level at the district of Yen Bai Province in Northwest of Vietnam. About. Agriculture holds the major economical share of this.
The prime period is during the harvesting season of September, October and early November where many locals and some foreign tourist will come here. 500 hectares of the over 2000 hectares of rice terraces are in the three communes of La Pan Tan, De Xu Phinh, and Che Cu Nha Hmong village. June to September growing season where you can see all the terraces in green carpet and not many activities and occasionally some Hmong at the far away fields in their traditional colorful attire in contrast to the greens fields.
AMA DABLAM, NEPAL
“When you get to the HIGH, you would see things way clearer……” – anonymous
Ama Dablam is a mountain in the Himalaya range of eastern Nepal. The main peak is 6,812 meters (22,349 ft), the lower western peak is 6,170 meters (20,243 ft).
Ama Dablam means “Mother’s necklace”; the long ridges on each side like the arms of a mother (ama) protecting her child, and the hanging glacier thought of as the Dablam, the traditional double-pendant containing pictures of the gods, worn by Sherpa women. Ama Dablam is the third most popular Himalayan peak for permitted expeditions.
The scenic view, the onerous conditions and the touch of ineffable natural ambiance are few of those adjectival things which makes it feel like the glimpse of the extreme completeness.

And after this, here I am offering something much more important for you all to please read. It is not some internal link for getting more views rather a link to another website content which indeed is more important than getting internal link views. I am providing a link for the consequences of mountaintop cutting for natural resource extraction. We must understand that what all we have seen up above on the page, it won’t exist if we would be promoting this.
