The highest point in the world is Mount Everest – it has an awe-inspiring elevation of 29,032 feet! It is located on the China-Nepal border along the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas. Planet Earth is abundant with colossal, humbling geological features that humanity both admires and respects from a distance and also seeks to conquer! While Mount Everest is the highest and many consider it the pinnacle of adventuring, it is not the deadliest mountain. That distinction belongs to K2, the second highest mountain in the world. With an overall death rate of 13%, only 377 people have successfully ascended K2 compared to Everest’s 11,258 successful summits. This infographic explores the highest points in every country, from the vast, formidable Himalayas to the 151 foot bluff of the Cayman Islands. How many have you experienced yourself?
