From the Matterhorn to Mount Rainier, the Seven Summits, and more — ‘Mountains of the Earth’ displays the most ‘historic,’ ‘beautiful,’ and ‘remote’ peaks on the planet.

Looking for India’s high point? What about the most prominent peak in America? And how high are the Seven Summits? Learn it all and plenty more with Marmota Maps’ new work: “Mountains of the Earth.”

This wall hang measures 140 x 100 cm (about 55 x 40 inches) and draws attention to hundreds of the world’s mountains. The map represents all of Earth’s peaks over 8,000 m. It also depicts historic mountains, like Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and Mount Olympus in Greece.
