Mount Everest is the tallest mountain in Asia, and the world.

The Seven Summits are the tallest mountains on each continent. Climbing each of the seven summits is a mountaineering challenge.

The summits are:

Australia's tallest mountain, Mount Kosciuszko (2,228 m), was on the original Seven Summits list. As this mountain is considered a rather trivial challenge, Puncak Jaya on New Guinea (4,884 m) is considered to represent Oceania.

Mont Blanc (4,810 m) is occasionally regarded as Europe's tallest mountain, as Elbrus is on the Eurasian border. However, the mountain is not on any of the Seven Summits lists.
