It's about one-tenth as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 2,530 feet is 0.0871 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 11.50 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, 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 29,000 feet above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.0131 feet and shifting it to the northeast by 0.0148 feet each year.
It's about one-tenth as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 2,530 feet is 0.08411 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 11.890 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 30,180 feet above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about thirteen-and-a-half times as tall as The Cinderella Castle.
In other words, the height of The Cinderella Castle is 0.0746 times 2,530 feet.
(Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida)
Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle is 189 feet tall. The castle's architecture uses the optical trick known as "forced perspective" — the castle gets smaller near the top — to appear larger than it truly is.
It's about thirteen-and-a-half times as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
In other words, the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 0.073 times 2,530 feet.
(a.k.a. The Tower of Pisa, a.k.a. Torre pendente di Pisa) (Pisa, Italy) (height along center axis)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa stands 185 feet tall along the angle of its lean. In May of 2008, in an successful effort to stabilize the tower, 70 tonnes of earth were removed from the tower's base on the side opposite the lean.
It's about one-fifteenth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 2,530 feet is 0.070734 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 14.1370 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 35,768 feet below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about one-fifteenth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 14 times 2,530 feet.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 36,000 feet. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about fifteen times as tall as Nelson's Column.
In other words, 2,530 feet is 14.930 times the height of Nelson's Column, and the height of Nelson's Column is 0.06698 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom) (from pedestal first step to tip of statue's hat)
Nelson's Column measures 169.40 feet from the first step of the pedestal's base to the top of the statue's hat. While the London tower is the tallest, there are at least eight other monuments to Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, 1st Duke of Bronté throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and Barbados.
