, (mountain of sun) is a mountain located in northeastern Oman north of Al Hamra town. It is the highest mountain of the country and part of Al Hajar Mountains range.

Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

At 5,895m (19,341 feet), Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and fourth highest of the Seven Summits.
Located in Tanzania, close to the border of Kenya, Kilimanjaro a dormant stratovolcano, composed of three distinct volcanic cones: Kibo (5,895m), Mawensi (5,149m) and Shira (3,962m). Uhuru Peak, which means “freedom” in Swahili, is the highest summit on Kibo’s crater rim.
The mountain was first climbed in 1889 by Hans Meyer from Germany and today, there are six official routes to Uhuru Peak.
Kilimanjaro is regarded as easiest of the Seven Summits, but the reputation and easy access are deceptive and a lot of climbers head to Kilimanjaro with insufficient preparation. According to data from the Kilimanjaro National park, only 30% of permit holders on Kilimanjaro actually summit the mountain.

Elbrus

Elbrus is a dormant two-summit volcano in the central Caucasus. As the highest peak in Russia and Europe, it is one of The Seven Summits, the list of the planet’s highest mountains. The two summits are two separate volcanos. The “young cone” – the eastern summit – is 5621m high, while the highest point – the western summit – is 5642 m. Elbrus’s slopes are not generally steep but the average slope angle reaches 35 degrees after 4000m altitude. Northern and western slopes feature numerous vertical cliffs as high as 700m. Eastern and southern slopes are low-pitched.
The classic southern route leads to Elbrus’ western summit at an altitude of (5642 m). The route is not technically difficult but requires good physical form, acclimatization and skills in using some alpinist equipment.
