I have a preference for steep spiky mts like Alpamayo, K2, Matterhorn etc..
Asgard & Mt Thor on Baffin Island are simply stunning.

I find this article focuses too much on "popular" mts.. yes, and to sell plane tickets.

Just My personal opinion, but of all the places I been to, I consider Eldorado Peak to be the most beautiful of the Cascades:

I would say more like from Chocolate Peak. Hurd Peak would show a direct on (12-6 o'clock 0 to180 deg) due south aspect view of the NB of Goode, where as this shot shows more of SW (2-8 o'clock - from the NE) aspect view that includes the obvious bench above Saddle Rock Lake that leads to the base of the DNB of Goode.

The Chief is correct, that was taken from the summit of Chocolate Peak in late May of last year. The cornice on the left side of the summit was pretty epic. I only wish I could've seen it fall...

Hardly surprising coming from Bing that it's basically a list of some of the world's most famous mountains anyway

Monte Civetta does it for me

Image
Yr Wyddfa is only small but it's complex and perfectly formed

Not my photos but I hope the authors can forgive me, these pictures need to be shared

Mt Fuji is very beautiful.

And I've not seen it by myself, but Laila Peak, I've always considered it extremely beautiful:

Always liked Cotopaxi (Ecuador), probably due to its symmetry and its almost sugar-cone snow cap. Went there in 1989 and climbed it, along with a few other Ecuadorian volcanos. :D
