The highest known mountain is Mount Olympus on Mars. It is 22

kilometers high. (That's a bit over 72,000 feet.)

The highest mountain above sea level on Earth is Mount Everest

(on the border of Nepal and Tibet) at 29,029 feet; but the tallest

mountain on Earth is Mauna Kea in Hawaii. From where it starts

under the ocean to its very peak it is 33,465 feet tall.
