Whoa. That's some pretty high stuff in Oman and Yemen. I was totally unaware of that. Thought it was much flatter.

Agreed! Wouldn’t have thought they’d be great in elevation. Qatar on the other hand :o

Just wait till Quebec becomes independent, then most of these A-Z quizzes will finally have a different answer for Q!

Didn't knew Lesotho is higher than Liechtenstein or Luxembourg

Perhaps surprisingly Luxembourg is just 560m at its peak. Liechtenstein on the other hand is 2,599m.

In fact, the most surprising thing in my opinion is that Laos and Lebanon also beat Luxembourg with 2.8k and 3k each! Besides from the peaks, the alps just can't handle Asia's height.

Well, Luxembourg is one of the "Low Countries" along with Belgium and the Netherlands. :)

whoever made this quiz, could you accept different spellings for kyrgyzstan and tajikistan, they're a bit hard to spell...

We accept all standard JetPunk type-ins. For the two countries you mentioned, there are many ways you can spell them.

E.g. the type-in regex for Kyrgyzstan is ^K[IY]RG[A-Z]+STAN, meaning you must start with a K, followed by an I or Y, then an RG, then end with a STAN. You can input anything you like inbetween G and S. I.e. Kirgijsnguyrbnifsnfstan is acceptable!
