I didn't discover most sacred mountains of Hinduism (Sanatana Dharma) in a long and detailed of blessed mountains, as I would expect; consequently I chose to make my own. Most sites just list mountains, for example, Mount Kailash and all they include are potentially some fanciful mountains, for example, Mount Meru the physical presence of which involves debate. Different sites I found list the world's sacred mountains just all around, which bears an issue for me, as Huayna Picchu, the consecrated pile of the Incas that ascents over Machu Picchu, is not a mountain particularly hallowed for Hindus.

On the off chance that where the list is much bigger and where it will be continuously completed you will also see pictures of probably the most glorious mountains on the world, for example, Zhara Lhatse, a holy mountain in Tibet.

The following list contains mountains that are particularly sacred for Hindus, additionally for Buddhists, as both these two religions share some most sacred mountains in India and Tibet, and it would not be a smart thought to make two objects of one.

The list will be shared into geographical places such as China, India, Bhutan, and Nepal. Enjoy!
