with Lifts top the Top
Below is a list of Mountains throughout the World
with lifts to the top, or close to the top, such as
Trains, Roads, Elevators or Gondola's.
The view from high in a mountain is one of the
most amazing experiences you can ever obtain. Not
everyone is fit enough to climb to a few thousand
feet, or willing to endure the pain you have to go
through to reach that height up a mountain, so make
their way to these mountains with lifts. Many have
shops and restaurants at the top.
The mountains listed below are in order of lowest
to highest where the lift ends.
