Can you add that height is in feet- not that it really makes a difference, most people will either know the answers or won't.

The height of Mount Doom isn't unkown. I've got an atlas from middle-earth; right now I'm too lazy to look after it but if I remember right it's something between 1 and 2 kilometres. And too, it's NOT the heighest mountain in middle-earth.

The height of Mt Doom is known: it's 7515 feet. That's the height of Mt Ngauruhoe, which played the role of Mt Doom in the LOTR films.

What's the source of Mount Doom being Mordor's highest mountain? I don't remember that being stated in the books.
+1

Well for one thing there are no other major mountains. Mordor is an area enclosed by the mountains, and Mount Doom sits on a plateau in the middle of Mordor. I can't recall if it says specifically in the book, but it can be reasonably assumed that Mordor is the highest.

It's the same in Australia, just a good walk up and back, beaut views from the top though (same for Ben Nevis)

Where I am, climbing the tallest mountain nearby involves a lot of cold and not a lot of oxygen (not that I've done it), and that mountain is not even half the height of Everest.

Is there a reason anyone can tell me why Everest is listed as 'Earth' and not Nepal?

Level 79
Jan 26, 2017
It's probably because "highest mountain on earth" sounds more impressive (and it's more descriptive) that "highest mountain in Nepal." BTW, it's also in China...

Do we know for sure that Mount Doom is the highest mountain in Mordor? After all, Mordor also encompasses the Ephel Duath and Ered Lithui. If it really is the highest, please add Orodruin as a type-in. And Citlaltépetl for Pico de Orizaba as well, please.
