Olympus Mons is the tallest mountain in our solar system it’s on MARS, it beats any of mountain in world or any other solar planet

Located in the western hemisphere of Mars, off the northwestern edge of the Tharsis bulge, stands Olympus Mons. This shield volcano measures 25 km (15.53 mi) tall and 624 km (387.7 mi) in diameter, which makes it roughly two and a half times as tall as Mount Everest’s height above sea level.

Olympus Mons are currently the largest volcano discovered in the Solar System and have been known to astronomers since the late 19th century.

The main difference between the volcanoes on Mars and Earth is their size; volcanoes in the Tharsis region of Mars are 10 to 100 times larger than those anywhere on Earth. The lava flows on the Martian surface are observed to be much longer, probably a result of higher eruption rates and lower surface gravity.

Another reason why the volcanoes on Mars are so massive is because the crust on Mars doesn’t move the way it does on Earth. On Earth, the hot spots remain stationary but crustal plates are moving above them
