14 eight-thousanders

If you have ever been interested in geography and mountains in general, you have probably heard about the top peaks in the world. Climbing the highest mountains in the world is something that very few people have achieved. They are amazing, beautiful, and yet quite dangerous places. A typical climb of a peak of altitude above 8000 meters or 26 247 ft, requires a lot of preparation, such as proper food, training routine, mindset, climbing skills, teamwork, and many more.
