The Himalayan Mountain Range is the tallest and contains the world’s 10 highest peaks. Seven are located in Nepal, two in Pakistan, and Everest, the highest peak in the world, is on the border of Nepal and China.
The traditional way to measure how tall mountains are is to do so from sea level, and by this definition, the Himalayan mountains are the tallest. But there are other ways of measuring mountains too. Many islands are in fact undersea mountains, with just their tops poking out of the water. By this measure, Mauna Kea in Hawaii is tallest, at over 10,000 meters (32,808 feet). Measuring from the center of the planet gives yet a different result, with Ecuador’s Chimborazo the tallest. This mountain is 6,384 kilometers (3,967 miles) from the Earth’s core.
