The Meanings of the Names of the 10 Highest Mountains on Every Continent #Infographic

Since the dawn of civilization, mountains have been a source of wonder, adventure, suffering, and livelihood. Epic names are given that demand awe and admiration, such as Aconcagua ("stone sentinel") and Mawenzi ("the crumpled, jagged, broken one"). They are given. Mount Everest in the Himalayas of Asia, rising into the sky at 29,035 feet, is the tallest peak on Earth. The English name of Everest comes from Sir George Everest, a British surveyor and geographer who served from 1830 to 1843 as India's surveyor general. Having never seen or explored Everest himself, he objected to the naming honours. It is called Sagarmatha by the Nepalese people , which means "front of the sky." It is called Chomolungma by Tibetan natives, which means "goddess mother of mountains."
