Europeaklist - Hill and Mountain lists
On this website you will find a growing library of hill and mountain lists, free for you to download and use, many of which can be printed off in booklet format. Click on the side bar on the left of this page to go to a list of countries for which lists of the hills and mountains have so far been created. Select a country and click to go to its page on this website. More lists for more countries will be added in due course.
This website was originally set up to carry on, mainly in a European context, the work of Aaron Maizlish and others, whose website at http://www.peaklist.org. contains a large selection of worldwide mountain lists. The lists on this website generally do not feature on www.peaklist.org.
Although mainly devoted to hills and mountains within the European Union and European Economic Area, Europeaklist also serves as a platform for international peak-baggers' Halls of Fame and Registers' Lists. Other countries outside Europe, of interest to the webmaster, may also feature. There are also pages devoted to a trans-national mountain list - the 119 Major Mountains of Britain and Ireland, and also to the activity of 'poly-bagging'.
Most of the lists on this website are selected by their 'topographic prominence' (also called 'drop') classification. This is a way of identifying separate hills and mountains. 'Prominence' or 'drop' can be defined as the difference between the height of a summit and the lowest point on the watershed connecting it with a higher summit. To learn more about 'prominence' see here. Many of the lists also feature a height criterion.
Enough of technicalities. Lists of hills and mountains are just a tool to get you into the great outdoors to enjoy the challenges and joys of hill-walking and mountaineering.
Many people have contributed to the information contained on this website. Their contributions are acknowledged in the hill and mountain lists you can download from the various pages below. Special thanks go to Jonathan de Ferranti. Jonathan has played a central role in both the Peaklist and Europeaklist listing projects. Without his efforts, this website would not exist.
Visit/join the Baggers without Borders Forum ( https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/baggingwithoutborders ) for advice and discussion on the hills and mountains of the world. The Forum also offers the opportunity to join in Runners' Lists and Halls of Fame for people who enjoy 'bagging' peaks across the world.
An introduction to this website, now rather out of date, by its author, can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQ0FDbN_j5E.
Note: The popular 1000m Peaks of Scotland list is no longer available to download on this website. If you would like a copy of this list please e-mail the Europeaklist web-master using the e-mail address given at the bottom of this page.
Many of the lists which you can download from this website are in two formats. Download the 'print-booklet' version if you want to print off a booklet for four A5 sized pages on A4 sheets of paper. Download the 'e-booklet' version if you want to read the list in electronic format, for example on a computer, mobile or e-reader.
