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

Mountains have been a source of wonder, adventure, misery, and subsistence since the beginning of civilization. Epic titles, such as Aconcagua ("stone sentinel") and Mawenzi ("the crumpled, jagged, broken one") are provided that demand awe and admiration. 

They're being given. The highest mountain on Earth is Mount Everest in the Himalayas of Asia, rising into the sky at 29,035 feet. Everest 's English name comes from Sir George Everest, a British surveyor and geographer who served as the surveyor general of India from 1830 to 1843. He objected to the naming honours, having never seen or explored Everest himself. The Nepalese people refer to it as Sagarmatha, which means "front of the sky." Tibetan natives call it Chomolungma, which means "goddess mother of mountains."
