Mount Everest has the highest altitude in the world, located at 29,028 feet above sea level. However, Mauna Kea is actually a taller mountain than Mount Everest if you measure the distance from the bottom of the nearby ocean floor to the peak of the mountain.
The tallest mountain in the world measured from sea level in Mt. Everest; measured from the base of the mountain to the top is Mauna Kea (33,500 ft); measured as farthest from the Earth’s core, is Chimbarazo in Ecuador which is only 20,561 ft high, but it sits nearer to the equator than Everest. The Earth at the equator has a 69,000 foot longer radius than at the poles. This boost makes Chimbarazo 8,200 feet farther from the center of the Earth than Everest.
