World High Points

The difficulty coming up with a master list of the world’s nation summits is defining a consistent, reliable list of countries. Even though this was my first quest, I’ve decided to keep it as a collection for those I want to experience.

I am sure the list will evolve with time but my days of climbing highest points such as Denmark or Belgium just because it is the highest point are over. My focus is not the entire list, but the short list where I want to experience the mountain and culture together.
