Eight-Thousanders: World’s 14 Highest Mountain Peaks

Dhaulagiri

The Eight-Thousanders are 14 independent mountains on earth that are more than 8,000 metres high above sea level. There are also 22 subsidiary summits that are more than 8000 meters high but these are not considered as independent mountains. All of these are located in the mountain ranges of Himalaya and Karakoram in Asia. Their summits are in the death zone, a place where there isn’t enough oxygen to sustain human life. Only 39 climbers have reached the summits of all the 14 independent mountains. Let’s take a look at all of these world’s 14 highest peaks.
