Well-known volcanoes on land embody Mount St. Helens in Washington State and Mount Fuji in Japan. Sometimes volcanic eruptions break down mountains as an alternative of building them up, just like the 1980 eruption that blew the top off Mount St. Helens. The tallest mountain measured from prime to backside is Mauna Kea, an inactive volcano on the island of Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean. Measured from the bottom, Mauna Kea stands 33,474 toes tall, although it only rises 13,796 toes above the sea. As of December 2018, the highest peaks on four of the mountains — Gangkhar Puensum, Labuche Kang III, Karjiang, and Tongshanjiabu, all positioned in Bhutan or China — have not been ascended.
