What's the best mountain to climb/go up

I recently read a fiction novel that was all based around climbing memorable mountains, I've decided it's something that I'd like myself and my partner to do. Can anyone recommend a good, memorable mountain to climb for two inexperienced mountain climbers?

Here are links to two climbing organizations in the UK. You should talk to them and get some training and experience.

Greece is a mountainous region so there are many opportunities for hikes with spectacular views.. http://www.wikiloc.com/trails/outdoor/greece . and . www.oreivatein.com/oreivatein/intro/eng.htm.

As a novice climber it is better to go with hiking clubs. http://www.pezoporia.gr .

No doubt North Pakistan especially the Karakorum Mountains are Paradise for adventure lovers. Most of experience and inexperience climbers visiting to achieve their goals. As you said memorable for inexperience climber, i can suggest you many peaks but once you highlight your goal to achieve altitude/summit & height of peak. There are many peak with different height and will you go for 5500 in between 6500m or above?

Keep in mind Pakistan announced free climbing policy for the peak upto 6500m and you don't need to pay any money except your ground expenses likely, hotel accommodation, meals, transport, climbing and climbing guide. That's why most of inexperience climbers coming to furnish their climbing skills for zero peak royalty fee.

An adventure company from Hunza Vallley http://www.visitatp.com/ is well functional & organizing mountaineering expeditions round the year, look at the list of their peaks http://www.visitatp.com/webs.php?webid=9

Hope it helps!

I might try something near you in the Alps to see if it is enjoyable to you. Plenty of countries to choose from: France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, etc. I might start looking into some peaks or trails that seem of interest.

New Zealand has some great mountains or just multi-day treks called the great walks like the Routeburn or Kepler, that go over spectacular mountain passes and have great views.

In the States, Colorado, California, Washington have great mountains, as does Utah. There are several 11,000+ foot peaks within an hour of downtown Salt Lake City. You could hike something like Mt. Timpanogos or the Pfeifferhorn in the day and be eating Ethiopian, Mexican, or sushi in the evening. And tackle another, the next day. Or combine a few, for a multi-day backpacking adventure. These wouldn't be technical mountaineering however, unless you tried to conquer them in the winter and needed ice axes, crampons, etc.

Given that the OP never returned to even acknowledge having read any of the comments and that s/he hasn't posted at all since posting this in August, why would anyone want to add a new comment suggesting anything?

The Teton Moutain range in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA, is a stunning/beautiful mountain range with a wide variety of peaks of different styles and difficulties to climb.

Plus it's very close to Yellowstone National Park.

Mt. Rwezori in Uganda and Kilimanjaro in Tanzania beats them all.
