      Mount Everest is the tallest mountain on land if you measure from sea level. HOWEVER if you measure from the Earth’s centre, it’s a mountain called Chimborazo in the Andes! Everest stretches a distance of 3,965 miles (6,382 kilometres) from Earth’s centre. Meanwhile, Chimborazo stretches 3,967 miles (6,384 kilometres).
