We’ve all heard of Mount Everest and Kilimanjaro — but there are many mountains off the radar that are worth climbing, according to Larry O’Hanlon on Discovery.com.

O’Hanlon’s list of “7 Mountains You Forgot to Climb” includes Australia’s highest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko; Japan’s second-highest peak, Mount Kita; and Carrauntoohil Peak in Ireland.

Of Mount Kenya in Africa, also on the list, O’Hanlon writes: “At 17,057 feet (5,199 meters) Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa and is located some 200 miles (320 kilometers) from the higher, more famous and far more visited Mount Kilimanjaro. Mount Kenya offers loads of challenging rock and ice climbing possibilities and is rich in alpine meadows and exotic, high-altitude wildlife. All this, along with the lack of crowds, makes it among the most beautiful expeditions in the East African mountains.
