The Smallest Mountain
Now that you’ve climbed Everest, or at least sifted through a porter-load of stories about climbing it, you should take a break and do something different. Something completely different. That desire led us to Mount Wycheproof, the world’s smallest registered mountain. Located in Australia’s Terrick Terrick Range, Mount Wycheproof stands 486 ft (148 meters to the rest of the world) above sea level, which is not bad as far as small mountains go. The catch is that it only rises 141ft (43 meters, I suppose) above its surroundings.
The mountain is located in the town of Wycheproof. It could also be said that the town is located on the summit, it’s hard to tell. However you choose to see it, the mountain/town is home to a population of 686, which is less than Everest Base Camp during peak season. Although it’s not hard to scale, it is possible fewer people have reached the summit of Mount Wycheproof than Mount Everest.
Mount Wycheproof has its own Facebook page, with a current total of 35 likes. Please support the world’s smallest mountain by liking its page, we want it to be at least as popular as Everest.
