Top 10 Highest Mountains in the World: A Must-See Once in a Lifetime!


Nepal is known as the kingdom of the Himalayas. Here are 8 out of the 10 highest mountains in the world. Mt. Everest is the roof of the World, an elevation of 8,848.86 meters. Mt. K2 and Nanga Parbat being outside Nepal. Owing to the semi-tropical latitude and rainfall, the mountains are covered in vegetation up to around 3,500-4,000m (the tree line generally goes up to about 3,900m). Beyond the first ridge of the Himalayas is a high altitude or ‘cold’ desert. This includes the Upper Mustang, Manang, and Dolpo.
