Here are the top highest moutain ranges in africa and all are above 4000m.
- Mountain – A geological, or land, feature that rises 600m above the immediately surrounding area.
- Peak – A point on a mountain that is higher than other local points (one way to think of this is if you need to descend to reach another peak, you were standing on one, to begin with). A mountain will very often have multiple, if not numerous, peaks.
- Summit – The highest point on a mountain. Every summit is also a peak, but not every peak is a summit.
- The prominence: The minimum height of climb to the summit on any route from a higher peak, or from sea level if there is no higher peak.
