The 25 Most Mountainous Countries In the World

Do you care to know the most mountainous countries in the world? When we talk about mountainous countries, we refer to those that have a high average altitude above sea level. Therefore, in this case, we are not talking about countries with large mountain peaks, since a country with a high average altitude does not necessarily have to have large peaks.

Just over 30 countries in the world exceed the planet’s average altitude of 840 meters. However, five of them are located well above that altitude, exceeding 2000 meters of altitude.

Most of the world’s most mountainous countries are located in South Asia, on the Himalayas. If we take into account that the Himalayas are the highest mountain range on Earth, standing at 8,849 meters above sea level, it is logical to think that the countries above it or in its surroundings are also the ones with the highest altitude.
