It is estimated that there are more than a million mountains on the planet. Do you know which are the most important mountain ranges and the highest peaks on Earth? We invite you to a pleasant tour of the highest mountains in the world.
In Asia there are not only the 20 highest mountains in the world, but also the 100 highest peaks on the planet in a few mountain ranges, including the Himalayas.
The highest mountains in Asia
A few Asian mountain ranges headed by the Himalayas are home to the 100 tallest mountains in the world.
1. The Himalayas
The highest mountain range on Earth extends over 2400 km of Asian territory passing through Bhutan, Nepal, China and India. Imposing mountain range with more than 100 peaks over 7,000 meters above sea level
Of the 14 eight thousand, 10 are in the Himalayas, including Mount Everest, the “roof of the world” with 8848 meters above sea level
Of the 10 largest natural skyscrapers on the planet, only one, Mount K2, the second highest mountain in the world, is outside the Himalayas.
The second highest summit of the Himalayas, third in the world and first in India, is Kanchenjunga, with 8,586 meters above sea level. Its name means, “The five treasures of the snow”, because it has 5 peaks all above 8,450 meters above sea level.
The list of the 5 highest mountains in the world is completed by Mount Lhotse (8,516 masl) and Mount Makalu (8,485 masl), both on the border between China and Nepal.
Appreciate the beauty of the Himalayas in the video below:
2. Karakoram Range
It is a mountain range of only 500 km in length on the border between India, Pakistan and China, which houses the 4 eight thousand that are not in the Himalayas: Mount K2 (8611 masl), Gasherbrum I (8068 masl), Broad Peak (8051 masl ) and Gasherbrum II (8034 masl). All these peaks are on the border between China and Pakistan, although India claims sovereignty over K2.
Conditions in the Karakoram range are so harsh that it is less inhabited than the Himalayas and outside the polar regions, it is the most glaciated part of the world. These huge ice masses of the Karakoram are one of the best indicators of climate change.
Mount K2 is second only to Everest in the ranking of the highest peaks in the world and is one of the most dangerous with a rate of one mountaineer dying for every 4 who climb it.
Appreciate the wonder of this mountain in the following video:
3. Kunlun Mountains
The Himalayan and Karakórum mountain ranges share the first 33 peaks of the planet (20 for the first and 13 for the second), until a foreigner appears in place No. 34, the Kunlun mountain range.
This long mountain range of more than 3000 km is entirely in China and runs from north to south bordering the west of the vast Asian country, parallel to the Pamir mountain range, then turning to the east.
The Kunlun mountain system has 200 peaks over 6,000 meters above sea level and its highest peak is Kongur Tagh, at 7,719 meters above sea level, one of the highest peaks in the world that also stands out for its mythological relevance.
This mountain range is home to the Taoist paradise, being the refuge of the Queen Mother of the West in Chinese mythology.
Take a closer look at it in this video:
4. Hindu Kush Massif
This Asian massif of nearly 1,000 km in length is located between Afghanistan and Pakistan and its highest peak is Tirich Mir, 40 km from the Pakistani city of Chitral, which ranks 36th among the world’s peaks with 7,690 meters above sea level.
The first westerner to know the Hindu Kush was Alexander the Great and the Macedonians called it, Paropamisos. It was formed 44 million years ago along with the Himalayas, by a collision between the Indian subcontinent plate and the Eurasian plate. It is a geologically active area prone to earthquakes that continues to rise.
Tirich Mir was first summited in 1950 by a Norwegian expedition led by Arne Naess, a mountaineer who founded the philosophical current of deep ecology and the best-known Norwegian philosopher of the 20th century.
See in this video what the massif looks like from above:
5. Mount Damavand
What are the highest mountains in the world? With its 5610 meters above sea level, Mount Damavand is one of them. It is also the highest peak in the Middle East and the highest volcano in Asia.
It is visible from Amol, the ancient Persian capital and birthplace of the mythological hero, Arash “the Archer”.
According to Persian mythology, Arash released the arrow that marked the border between the Iranians and the Turanians on Mount Damavand. Kaveh “the Blacksmith” defeated the 3-headed dragon Azhi Dahaka Zahhak, whom he tied to the mountain for being immortal.
The South Route, with a camp at 4220 meters above sea level, is the most used for its ascent of the 16 that the mountain has. The Western Route offers impressive sunsets.
Watch this natural wonder in this video:
6. Mount Kinabalu
It is the highest peak in Insulindia with 4095 meters above sea level. It is on the island of Borneo, in Malaysian territory.
The first man to ascend it was the English mountaineer, Hugh Low, in 1851, to whom the mount owes its name.
Kinabalu integrates the Kinabalu National Park, a protected area in 1964 with 75,370 hectares, declared a World Heritage Site in 2000 for being one of the places with the greatest diversity of flora in Southeast Asia.
The bush is home to nearly 6,000 different species of flora including 1,200 types of orchids, rhododendrons, figs, chestnut trees, ferns and the incredible Kinabalu endemic Nepenthes Rajah or pitcher plant, an impressive carnivorous plant capable of devouring mammals. In the mountain also lives a giant leech of more than half a meter.

7. Mount Fuji
Without being one of the highest mountains in the world, Fuji’s 3,776 meters above sea level is enough to reach the highest point in Japan. It is also one of the most recognizable mountains in the world due to the postcards that the Japanese have made of this stratovolcano that they revere.
On clear days it is visible from Tokyo and is the most popular tourist spot in Japan. Every year about 200,000 people climb Fuji and a few attack the mountain at night to watch the sunrise from the summit.
The main Japanese natural symbol is still considered an active volcano, despite the fact that the last eruption occurred in 1707. The ascent can be done in between 3 and 8 hours, depending on the experience and physical condition of the climber.
See Mount Fuji from all its angles in the following video:
The highest mountains in South America
The Andes mountain range is the American “Himalayas”. It extends 7,240 km bordering the Pacific coast between southern Argentina and Chile and the Caribbean Sea, being the longest mountain chain in the world.
The Andes are home to the highest volcanoes on Earth and the 20 highest mountains in the Americas.
8. Aconcagua Peak
At 6,960 meters above sea level, it is the highest peak in the world outside of Asia and the highest in the Western and Southern Hemispheres. It is in Argentina in the province of Mendoza and its summit was reached for the first time in 1897 by the Swiss, Matthias Zurbriggen.
Pico Aconcagua is considered the highest “non-technical” mountain on the planet, since ropes, pins or axes are not necessarily required for climbing the northern route. The use of supplemental oxygen is also not common. However, this relative ease of climbing makes it dangerous because unprepared climbers try to crown it.
Appreciate this incredible peak in the video that I leave you below:
9. Snowy Eyes of the Salado
This Andean stratovolcano between Argentina and Chile is the second highest peak in America and the highest Chilean summit with 6893 meters above sea level.
The Nevado Ojos del Salado has two planetary marks: the highest volcano in the world and a small lake located at 6390 meters above sea level, it is the highest body of water on Earth.
Only in winter does it have snow due to its location at the foot of the Atacama desert.
History does not record any eruptions, but it frequently emits fumaroles.
The first to ascend it were Jan Alfred Szczepański and Justyn Wojsznis, Polish mountaineers who in 1937 participated in an expedition through South America.
Observe this incredible wonder in the following video:
10. Chimborazo Volcano
Chimborazo is at 6,268 meters above sea level, a height that is not enough to be among the 20 highest mountains in America. Despite this, it holds a world record: its summit is the furthest point from the center of the Earth.
The Earth is not a round sphere; it is flattened at the poles and bulging at the equator. This implies that some points on the equator are the furthest from the center of the planet.
Due to its equatorial location in the Republic of Ecuador, the top of the Chimborazo Volcano is the furthest point from the center of the Earth, surpassing Mount Everest by 2 km.
Chimborazo is the highest mountain in the Republic of Ecuador and it is believed that its last eruption occurred in 550 BC.
Its glaciers in the middle of the tropics were the main sources of ice for nearby cities before the invention of refrigeration.

The tallest mountains in North and Central America
These subcontinents boast majestic peaks in the Alaskan Cordillera, the Neovolcanic Cordillera of Mexico, and the Central American Cordillera.
11. Mount Denali (former Mount McKinley)
Its 6190 masl make it the highest mountain in North America and due to the terrible temperatures due to its proximity to the Arctic Circle, one of the most difficult summits to climb in the world.
It owes its name to William McKinley, President of the United States between 1897-1901. Barack Obama renamed it in 2015 with his original name, Denali.
Appreciate this incredible work of nature in the following video:
12. Orizaba Peak
At 5,636 meters above sea level, it is the highest volcano in North and Central America, the third summit in the subcontinent and the first in Mexico.
Its name in the Nahua language is Citlaltépetl, which means “mountain of the star”. It is believed that it was given to him because at certain times of the year the planet Venus is on the peak as the brightest star.
It is a stratovolcano that has had 9 periods of eruptions since the 16th century, the last one in 1876, being considered inactive and not extinct.
It is one of the 3 Mexican volcanoes that still have glaciers, although these have rapidly disappeared since the 1980s due to climate change.
It is located on the border between the Mexican states of Puebla and Veracruz and is the heart of the Pico de Orizaba National Park.
Observe in the following video the highest volcano in North and Central America:
13. Mauna Kea
Do you know what the tallest mountain in the world is called from its base to its peak? If the height of the mountains were measured from their base and not from sea level, Mauna Kea would be the highest on the planet with more than 10,000 meters, because it is longer below the water than above.
At 4,200 meters above sea level, it is the highest peak in Hawaii and the second highest island in the world.
Its indigenous name means “white mountain”. According to Hawaiian mythology, it is the home of Poli’ahu, one of the 4 snow goddesses, very beautiful but cold-hearted.
It is an inactive volcano whose last eruption was around the year 2460 BC On its top there is an important astronomical observatory.
Appreciate the wonder of this volcano in this video:
14. Tajumulco Volcano
It is the highest summit in Central America with 4220 meters above sea level. It is in Guatemala in the Sierra Madre de Chiapas (Sierra Madre for Guatemalans). The nearest town is San Marcos, approximately 15 km away.
The best time to climb Tajumulco, from whose summit the Mexican territory and the Pacific Ocean are visible, is the dry season, between November and April.
Tajumulco is followed by the Tacaná Volcano (4,092 masl / border between Guatemala and Mexico) and the Acatenango Volcano (3,976 masl / Guatemala), as the highest peaks in Central America.
Observe in this video the volcano and the experience of the ascent:
The highest mountains in Africa
When asking about the highest mountains in Africa, only Kilimanjaro comes to mind with its 5,892 meters above sea level, but the “black continent” has another 3 five thousand: Mount Kenya (Kenya / 5,199 meters above sea level), the Mawenzi Volcano (Tanzania / 5,149 meters above sea level ) and Mount Stanley (Democratic Republic of the Congo/Uganda / 5109 masl)
15. Mount Kilimanjaro
The main charm of Kilimanjaro is its eternal snow just 3 degrees from the equator, in hot Africa. However, global warming and deforestation to make grazing land available are melting them, and it is estimated that they could disappear by the middle of this century.
This extinct stratovolcano was discovered for the rest of the world in 1848, when the German missionary, Johannes Rebmann, was stunned to find snow in Africa.
The first Western summit was made in 1889 by the Austrian mountaineer, Ludwig Purtscheller, accompanied by the German geographer, Hans Meyer, and the indigenous guide, Yohana Lauwo.
The best routes for the ascent of the main African representative among the highest mountains in the world are on the southern slope, while those in the north are for experienced mountaineers.
Appreciate in the video below the best of this wonder:
16. Mount Ras Dashen
It rises to 4,553 meters above sea level, being the tenth summit in Africa and the highest in Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa.
Mount Ras Dashen is located in the Simien Mountains, an area that has two charms: it is one of the few places in Africa where snow falls regularly, and it is home to the endemic gelada and the Ethiopian wolf, the Ethiopian ibex.
The Ethiopian wolf, also called the Abyssinian wolf, is one of the rarest canids on the planet. It is estimated that only 550 copies remain.
The Ethiopian goat or walie is the national animal and the only goat species in sub-Saharan Africa; it is in a very serious risk of extinction since less than 500 individuals survive.
Apart from the human being, the gelada is the only primate capable of holding a conversation with its congeners, modulating the volume and tone of its voice.

The highest mountains in Europe
The Caucasus and the Alps are the two main mountain ranges of the old continent.
For a long time it was thought that the highest mountains in Europe were in the Alps of Switzerland and France, until the Caucasian giants of Russia and Georgia were revealed.
The five thousand in Europe are all in the Caucasus.
17. Caucasus Mountains
The Caucasus mountain range is one of the limits of Europe to the east. It is located between the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea. Four countries exercise sovereignty over the mountain system: Russia, Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
The 6 highest mountains in Europe are located in the Caucasus. No. 1 is Mount Elbrus, which at 5,642 meters above sea level is the highest peak in Russia and on the European continent. No. 2 is also Russian, Mount Dij-Tau, whose 5,205 meters above sea level rises just 5 km from the border with Georgia.
Mount Shkhara, at 5,193 meters above sea level, is the highest peak in Georgia and the third in Europe. Then follow Mount Koshtan-Tau (5,151 masl / Russia), Mount Kazbek (5,047 masl / Georgia) and Mount Tetnuldi (4,858 masl / Georgia).
Watch this video about climbing the mountains:
18. The Alps
Western Europe enters the ranking of the highest mountains on the continent in position No. 7 with Monte Blanco, in the Alps.
In the world distribution of the peaks, the Himalayas and other Asian massifs took out the jackpot with all the eight thousand and seven thousand; the Andes mountain range was left with a maximum of six thousand, while the Alps had to settle for only four thousand.
There are 82 four-thousanders in the Alps headed by Mont Blanc, at 4,810 meters above sea level on the border between France and Italy.
Other important alpine peaks due to their height, beauty or geographical connotations are Monte Rosa (4,634 masl), the second highest peak in Europe and the highest peak in Switzerland, and Monte Cervino (4,478 masl, Switzerland), famous for its impressive pyramidal shape.

The highest mountain in Antarctica
19. Vinson Massif
When imagining the highest mountains in the world, we do not think of this vast continent of 14 million km 2 , which exceeds Europe and Oceania in surface, but there is a remote elevation that rises with 4892 meters above sea level, 1200 km from the South Pole.
It is so far away that its existence was confirmed on the ground in 1966, the year it was first climbed by a group of American mountaineers led by Nicholas B. Clinch.
Since then, several hundred climbers have reached the top of the ice mountain paying the $40,000 charged by the company that specializes in the trip.
It is the goal of many climbers for being one of the Seven Summits (group with the highest in each continent adding the highest in North America) whose ascent has a particular attraction since the American Richard Bass crowned them between 1983 and 1985 .
The climbers first arrive in Punta Arenas, a Chilean city more than 3,000 km south of Santiago de Chile in the Magallanes and Chilean Antarctica Region, and then take a flight to the Vinson base camp, beginning the ascent of the Branscomb Glacier.
Watch this video detailing the route to the Vinson massif:
The highest mountain in Oceania
20. Mount Wilhelm or Puncak Jaya?
Some sources indicate that Mount Wilhelm, a mountain of 4509 meters above sea level located in Papua New Guinea, is the highest in Oceania.
It is called Enduwa Kombuglu in the Papuan language. Its western name of Mount Wilhelm was given by the Germans during the period when northeastern New Guinea was a German protectorate (1884-1914).
Other sources indicate that the highest peak in Oceania is Puncak Jaya, 4884 meters above sea level, in the sector of the island of New Guinea that belongs to Indonesia, which is included in the oceanic continent and not in Asia.
Puncak Jaya is the highest island peak in the world and is the highest in Indonesia and the island of New Guinea.

What is the highest elevation in the world?
Mount Everest is the highest point in the world above sea level with 8,848 meters above sea level. It is in the sub-mountain range of Mahalangur Himal within the Himalayas, on the border of Nepal and China.
What is the tallest mountain in the world today?
Taking as a reference the vertical distance between the peak and sea level, which is the universally used criterion for measuring mountains, the highest in the world is Mount Everest.
Taking as a reference the distance between the base of the mountain and the peak, the highest is the Hawaiian volcano, Mauna Kea, which is more than 10,000 meters higher than Everest by more than 2000 meters.
The peak of Mauna Kea is 4,207 meters above sea level and between sea level and its underwater base it measures more than 6,000 meters.
What are the 10 highest mountains in the world?

How many 8000 mountains are there in the world?
The so-called eight-thousanders, the highest world peaks, are 14.
In the Himalayas there are 10 eight-thousanders and the other 4 are in the Karakoram Mountain Range, all in Asia.
The highest eight thousand is Everest and the lowest is Shisha Pangma, in China, with 8027 meters above sea level
Who has reached the top of Everest?
The first to reach the top of Everest was the New Zealand climber, Edmund Hillary, accompanied by Tenzing Norgay, a Nepalese mountaineer. It happened at 11:30 a.m. (local time) on May 29, 1953.
Since then and until 2018, more than 8,000 people have reached the roof of the world. In 2018, 715 climbers reached the summit, setting an annual record.
The first woman to summit Everest was Japanese Junko Tabei on May 16, 1975.
What is the highest mountain?
The peak of Mount Everest is 8,848 meters above sea level, making it the highest mountain on Earth.

Mount K2 is the highest mountain in the world after Everest. It is at 8,611 meters above sea level, in the Karakórum mountain range, the border between China and Pakistan.
What is the lowest mountain in the world?
The lowest point on Earth is the Dead Sea which is 416.5 meters below sea level. Some nearby elevation will probably be the lowest in the world.
In Shouguang, Shandong province, China, there is the smallest mountain in the world with 60 centimeters of elevation from the ground. It appears to be at least 150 feet below the surface, but the Chinese have banned digging to keep it a mystery.
What is the highest mountain in Europe?
At 5,642 meters above sea level, the highest mountain on the old continent is Mount Elbrús. It is in the Caucasus, Russian territory, and is also the highest peak in Russia.

The highest mountain outside of Asia is Aconcagua (Andes Mountains, Argentina).
How long does it take to climb Everest?
An inexperienced climber needs between 30 and 40 days of acclimatization in base camps at more than 5,000 meters above sea level, to accustom the body to the lack of oxygen and the lower atmospheric pressure.
Then you will need about 7 days to reach the summit. Among elite climbers, Austrian Christian Stangl climbed in just 16 hours and 42 minutes from Advanced Base Camp in 2006.
Who has climbed Everest the most times?
The Nepalese Sherpa, Kami Rita, has made 24 summits as of May 2019. He is 49 years old, so he will surely climb at least one more time.
Among the women, the Nepalese, Lhakpa Sherpa, made her ninth summit in May 2018 and is in top form at 46 years old.
The American, Jordan Romero, summited Everest at the age of 13 years and 10 months in 2010, while the Indian, Poorna Malavath, reached the top of the world in 2014 at the age of 13 years and 11 months.
How many meters is Mount Everest?
A few years ago there was a discrepancy between China and Nepal over the height of Everest.
The Chinese measured the height to the rock with the best technological resources in 2015, obtaining a value of 8844.43 meters above sea level. They claimed that this should be the official reference.
The Nepalese argued that the measurement should be up to the snow surface and that the actual height was 8,848 meters above sea level.
In 2010 they agreed that the height to the rock is 8,844 meters above sea level and the total height, the known 8,848 meters above sea level.
How tall are the average mountains?
Any topographical eminence with a height of more than 700 meters from its base is said to be a mountain.
There are more than a million mountains in the world, since 24% of the lithosphere (almost ¼ of the Earth’s surface excluding the sea) is mountainous.
The average height of the 14 eight-thousander mountains is 8,140 meters above sea level.
What is the highest peak in Latin America?
It is the Aconcagua, with 6960 meters above sea level. It is located in the Andes mountain range, in the Argentine province of Mendoza.
How many people have died on Everest?
As of April 2019, more than 300 people have died trying to climb Everest.
Most deaths are from avalanches, falls, ice collapses, and hypothermia.

What is the tallest mountain in the world and how tall is it?
It is Mount Everest and it is 8,848 meters above sea level.
The highest mountain in the world under the sea
Mauna Kea, an inactive volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii, rises 4,207 meters above sea level, but its largest portion, more than 6,000 meters, is kept underwater.
It is estimated that there are about 30,000 seamounts that do not protrude from the sea, which normally rest between 1,000 and 4,000 meters deep on the seabed. This is a little explored field.
highest point in the world
Regarding sea level, the roof of the world is Mount Everest with its peak at 8848 meters above sea level.
If the center of the Earth is taken as a reference, the most distant point from this is the top of the Chimborazo volcano at 6384 km.
The peak of Everest is 6382 km from the center of the planet losing by 2 km with the Ecuadorian volcano. This is due to differences in the radius (and diameter) of the Earth, which is not the same everywhere because it is not a perfect sphere.
What are the highest mountains in Mexico?
The 5 highest mountains in Mexico are:
- Pico de Orizaba or Citlaltépetl (5636 masl, Puebla / Veracruz).
- Popocatépetl (5500 masl, State of Mexico / Puebla / Morelos).

- Nevado de Toluca (4680 masl, State of Mexico).
- Sierra Negra Volcano (4580 masl, Puebla).
The areas with the highest altitude in the world are located in…
The highest peaks in the world are in the Himalayas, which has 48 top 100 peaks in the world, and in the Karakoram mountain range (42 top 100 peaks).
Other Asian mountain ranges such as Kunlun, Pamir, Hispar and Tian Shan then follow. Outside of Asia, the world’s highest elevations are in the Andes mountains.
Other areas of considerable altitude on the planet are the Alaskan mountain range, the Caucasus, the Alps and the Mexican Neovolcanic Axis.
how many mountains are there in the world
The Earth has a surface area of 510 million km 2 , of which 361 are water and 149 are lithosphere or solid land (and firm ice).
Approximately 36 million km 2 of the lithosphere is covered by mountainous mass and in this immensity there are hundreds of thousands of mountains, from those that do not reach 1,000 meters above sea level to the 14 peaks that exceed 8,000 meters above sea level.
According to the PeakVisor exploration laboratory, there are 1,000,809 mountains on the planet.
