Before Mt. Everest was discovered, what was the highest mountain in the world?

According to your info, Mt. Everest would still have been the tallest Mountain whether or not anyone knew about it.


However...Mt. Everest is not the tallest mountain on earth.

The world's highest mountain is actually Chimborazo - a stratovolcano in Ecuador that's part of the Andes mountain range - because it's the furthest point from Earth's centre and, therefore, the highest in terms of distance.
