There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as climbing a majestic mountain in a country or city you’ve never been to before. Not only are you connecting to the nature of the place, but once you reach the peak, you’re now treated to a beautiful view of a place you’re seeing for the first time. It’s one of the best feelings ever, and yet… there are a few caveats to take note of. Before you go on your hike, make sure you’re extra picky about when you’re going.

Sure, you can just climb any mountain at any time of the day and it’ll probably still look awesome. And hey, maybe you’ll get lucky and scale it at exactly the perfect time. But if you really want to optimize your experience, make sure you do some research about which time of the day is best to climb it.

Certain peaks show an incredible view right at sunset, while certain peaks must be climbed at sunrise. Heck, there are even some peaks that are absolutely gorgeous at midnight, so look into them!

It’s all about getting the most out of your experience. When you finally go back home, you’ll never stop thinking about that picturesque moment on top of that gorgeous mountain—seen at precisely the right time.
