Earth's highest Mountains
Important for all humans
High mountains are often weather dividers and change the local climate.|
Mountains have often springs, becoming rivers, delivering freshwater
Mountains biodiversity provides us different food, and clothing
Mountains give limited access to special regions, protecting cultures
Mountains are often borderlines between countries.
Mountains are an important part for our life on Earth!
Like a pearls on a string 10 of the highest peaks are in the mountain range Himalaya, four of them in the mountain range Karakorum which is close by.
India was once a continent by itsself located together with Australia far South connected with Antarctica. All continents on Earth are on the move, but India has been moving North till it hit the Asian continent about 30 million years ago. the crash was so strong that the highest mountain range on Earth the Himalaya was pushed up and folded. 25 million years ago the highest mountain on Earth was much higher than it is today.
The following list shows the 'about' height today. The Indian nowadays called subcontinent is still pushing, but erosion is taking away height too.
When we look at mountains, one is absolute the tallest when looked at it from bottom to peak. It is the Mauna Kea on Hawaii with 33476 ft = 10210 m. It starts at the ocean floor, goes on above the Pacific ocean level up to 13796 ft = 4205 m above sea level.
