The inactive stratovolcano Chimborazo (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃimboˈɾaso]) is Ecuador's highest summit. Its last eruption is thought to have occurred some time in the first millennium AD. Its summit is generally regarded as the spot on the surface farthest from the centre of the Earth, at a distance of 6,384.4 kilometres (3,967.1 mi).
I guess it would be the Chimborazo in the Andes triumphs. It stands but 20,561 feet (6,267 meters) above sea level. Also, its peak is the farthest from the earth's center, which I am sure it just happens to be an inactive volcano.
Irene, don't feel like an idiot! :) Firstly because you're not, you're actually quite intelligent. Secondly, because your answer wasn't wrong. :)
And for those of you who were (like me) wondering why isn't Mt. Everest the furthest point, it's because of the Earths bulges at the Equator -.-
Eh, it happens to the best of us. The things I've said half asleep :) Or drunk. Either way they made sense at the time :)
Mt. Chimborazo is 6384.4 km from the Earth's center, while Mt. Everest is 6381.7 km from the center.
I would guess somewhere in the equator, because it is the closest to the sun
I feel like an idiot now. I was totally asleep when I gave my answer. lol.
so wait what about mt. everest? it would be farthest from the center now?
Lol. That is true. haha. Thnx guys.
Wouldn it be like a mountain?
