The highest peak on Earth is located in the Himalayan mountain range, on the border between Nepal (where it’s called Sagamartha) and Tibet, China (where it’s called Chomolungma or Qomolangma). The summit lies at 8,948m above sea level. Everest is not technically the tallest mountain in the world, however: that honour goes to Mauna Kea in Hawaii, although most of it is under water.
