For many people, choosing to climb a 7000m peak is the next big step up, so how do you make sure you choose the right one?
Like all mountains, 7000m peaks come in many different formats, shapes and sizes, and the decision as to which one to climb will be based on several criteria.
Some people choose a peak because they want to vary their experience or explore somewhere new, others due to the technical challenge or the chance of success. It may be the dates of the climbing season that work best, the weather in the region, or simply the price for a particular trip. For some, what draws them is the sheer beauty of the peak!
