30 Highest Mountains in the World

There is no agreed definition of a mountain. Some authorities regard eminences above 600 m (2,000 ft) as mountains, those below being referred to as hills. But, generally we can say that a mountain is stretched over the adjoining land in a specific area, usually in the form of a peak. Asia is the region that is blessed by nature with beautiful lakes, multiple seasons, mineral-rich resources and highest mountains. In fact, almost all highest mountains of the world exist in Himalayan and Karakoram ranges of Asia. Mount Everest, K2 and Kangchenjunga, all are located in Asian continent. Heights of mountains are typically measured above sea level. With keeping that in mind, these are 30 highest mountains in the world.
