(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. Sagarmatha, a.k.a. Mount Qomolangma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 8.850 kilometers above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00000400 kilometers and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00000450 kilometers each year.
It's about two-thirds as tall as a Mauna Loa

(Speedway, Indiana) (rectangular oval course)
The rectangular oval course of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is 4.02336 km. While famous for its automotive racing, the first motorsport held at the track was a series of motorcycle races in August, 1909 — a little less than two years before the inaugural Indianapolis 500 race was run.

(Daytona Beach, Florida) (tri-oval course)
The tri-oval course of the Daytona International Speedway, upon which the NASCAR Daytona 500 is run, is 4.02336 km in length. Although the tri-oval design is said to allow for greater visibility during the race, the real reason for the then-unique design was that plot available for construction of the track was only 350 acres and could not accommodate a traditional oval layout of appropriate length.
It's about one-and-three-fifths times as long as The Hollywood Walk of Fame
In other words, the length of The Hollywood Walk of Fame is 0.630 times 6.2590 kilometers.
(Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, Hollywood, California) (approximate length)
The Hollywood Walk of Fame is approximately 3.9 km.

One of Autry's stars is also one of only two stars which have been stolen from the Walk and never recovered.
