The Martian Olympus Mons takes the highest mountain known to mankind. If your search of the highest mountain leaves Earth, this mountain on Mars takes the award. Olympus is a mind-blowing 22 km high which is 3 times higher than Everest. Olympus Mons is 624 km in diameter which can cover Arizona or te British isles in full. The crater at the top is so big that London can fit comfortably inside it.

Another interesting fact about Olympus Mons is that the slope is only 1-3 degrees; you won’t even get tired whilst climbing to the top! (minus the large distance you would have to travel).
