Piton des Neiges is the highest mountain on Reunion Island. The mountain is an old, eroded volcano, situated in the geologically older north central portion of the island.

Have a look around this mystic place called Snow Lake in northern Pakistan. It is the center of the famed Biafo-Hispar-Trek and is considered one of the most stunning places on earth (along with Concordia, which is close by). It is a huge "lake" of snow out of which rise dozens of mountains.
Cerro Aucanquilcha, Chile, is one of those places where hell sometimes releases its surplus building material through a volcano. So huge is that deposit of sulfur, that it was deemed worth to tap, even if the stuff has to be brought down from 6000m altitude with the highest arial ropeway to a sulfuric acid plant (deemed for copper processing at Chuquicamata, see mining branch). The workers drov...

In this winter view, Olympus is the only peak with a dusting of snow—perhaps the reason its name in classical Greek means “the luminous one.” In Greek mythology, the peak was inhabited by the Twelve Oly...

On any given day, approximately 1,400 people work in the base inside the Mountain (they enter through the tunnel you can see, or other tunnel entrances). Note several "blacked out" areas around the base and the mountain i...
