Mount Everest size

As the highest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest is 29,035 feet tall.

It is approximately 5.5 miles in height (5.5 miles is 29,040 feet).

At an average 8 foot ceiling in your home, it is 3,629 ceilings in height. You would need 24 Empire State Buildings to surpass it in height (24 would equal 30,000 feet)

If you can just walk up the mountain at approximately 3 mph, you can reach the top in under 2 hours.
