Mauna Loa Is the Largest Mountain in Terms of VolumeThis question is as easy to answer as the Pluto planet question. It all depends on whom you ask, their definition of a mountain...where the mountain starts...etc.

Mauna Loa is the tallest, biggest around the base and largest in volume, if you accept the portion under the water. Some geologist call the base of Mauna Loa the above sea level portion. Otherwise, why not measure K2 down to the Asian plate?

Nanga Perbet (Himmaliyas, Pakistan) is the LARGEST among the highest mountains in the world.

You may not be able to see K-2 from the top of Nanga Perbet but from the top of K-2. Similarly Nanga Perbat is viewable from very far off places due to its very large size.
