Top 26 World’s Highest Mountains

Measuring by the peak height over the level of sea, right from Mount Everest to 26 tall mountains worldwide will be the famous Himalayas Mountains. However, there is a problem in finding measurements considering that is the separating line amid the dividing mountains and a mountain having manifold peaks remains unclear. On the basis of ‘topographic prominence’ hence the measurement has been done and as said, it is a better way of measurement than ever. Some examples include Batura Sar, Chomo Lonzo, Nanda Devi, Annapurna I, Nanga Parbat, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri I, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Lhotse, Kangchenjunga, K2/Qogir/Godwin Austen, Mount Everest/Sagarmatha/Chomolungma. via: wikipedia
