The Chugach Mounatins - pronounced chugash - are visible from pretty much everywhere in Anchorage. These mountains get up to 13,176 feet tall and are gorgeous all year round.

Chugach Mountains

The original name for this mountain range in the Eskimo language was Chugachmiut. While Mount Marcus Baker is the tallest point, Flattop Mountain is equally famous at only 3,510 feet. Parties are held here at the summer and winter solstice!
