Originally posted by venda The tallest mountain on Earth was, and still is a mountain on the bottom of the Pacific ocean but I can't remember the name of it.
The climbing of mt Everest is irrelevant anyway
Mauna Kea in Hawaii, 33,476 feet (10,203 meters) from the Pacific Ocean floor.
Originally posted by wolfgang59 Correct - that is the tallest.
What is the highest mountain?
Chimborazo in Ecuador, when measured from the center of the Earth. At 20,548
feet it isn't the highest mountain when measured above sea level, but its location
on the equatorial bulge makes its summit the farthest point on the Earth's surface
from the Earth's center.
