Greatest Wonders of Earth

BIGGEST MOUNTAIN:

Normally we Consider That Biggest Mountain was Mount Everest,But It’s wrong consideration,everst is only the highest Elevation on land,but it is only a single peak in an entire mountain range,
Mauna Loa is a single mountain on the island of Hawaii.
Only about 13,448 ft/4100m of Mauna Loa are above sea level, so it may not seem like a very tall mountain. But, when you start measuring Mauna Loa from its true base on the bottom of the ocean, in the Hawaiian Trough, the total height exceeds that of Everest by over 3/4 of a mile. Mauna Loa is Hawaiian for “Long Mountain”, probably because of its long, gently sloping shape.

HIGHEST WATERFALL:

Highest waterfalls in the Earth Yet is Angel Falls, after the pilot who “discovered” them.Angel Falls plunges from the top of a mesa, or what the natives call a Tepuyi. Named “Auyantepui”, the Angel Falls mesa is one of over a hundred of its kind which are scattered about the Guiana Highlands of southeast Venezuela.

GREATEST EARTHQUAKE:

The honor of greatest earthquake of all time goes to the 1960 Chile earthquake because scientists were able to ‘catch this one on tape’. In other words, there have been a lot of really big earthquakes throughout human history (and even greater ones before we came on the scene), but this one they were able to measure, record and verify its ground motion strength.

GREATEST RIVER:

The Amazon is the greatest river in the world by so many measures; the volume of water it carries to the sea (approximately 20% of all the freshwater discharge into the oceans), the area of land that drains into it, and its length and width. It is one of the longest rivers in the world and, depending upon who you talk to, is anywhere between 6,259km/3,903mi and 6,712km/4,195mi long.
