could be of help in finding number 100
Any idea of the total number of 2000'/610m+ hills?
Other candidates for big drop hill concentrations.. ??
Difficult. New Zealand is somewhat balanced by North Island. Other
glaciated areas are in big countries or have Svalbard like glaciers
covering the cols (Greenland). Chile must be very impressive. Loads of
islands. and the North is volcano country..Isolated cones. Bit bigger than
Troms has to be the bumpiest county going... I have been up a few of the
hills there and they are good value.. some technical alpine, others long
walks over plateaus and tundra. The islands are very beautiful and worth
the airfare alone. The southern coastal strip of Alaska should secede..
Then there would be no contest.
In Europe the big prom countries would be Iceland, Scotland, and possibly
Greece which always seems to be full of isolated hills whenever I go there.
A lot of mountainous islands must help as well. But Norway is definitely
Bags of wee hills.
