The world's highest mountains
[more Top-10 Lists]
All ten of the world's highest mountains are in the Himalayas mountain range, a mountain range in Asia, separating the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan Plateau. The Himalayan mountain range stretches across six countries: Afghanistan, Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan.
It is not alway easy to distinguish between a mountain with multiple peaks and separate mountains. Below are what is considered the top 10 highest peaks, not counting secondary peaks which may also be very high.
Also out of interest, the highrest peak on the Moon is Mons Huygens at 4,700 metres (15,420 ft).
