It's about one-tenth as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 0.5270 hanks 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. 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 6.05 hanks above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.000002730 hanks and shifting it to the northeast by 0.000003080 hanks each year.
It's about one-tenth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 0.5270 hanks is 0.0841 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 6.2880 hanks 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 0.5270 hanks.
(Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida)
Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle is 0.0394 hanks 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 0.5270 hanks.
(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 0.0385 hanks 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 fourteen times as tall as The Mahabodhi Temple
In other words, the height of The Mahabodhi Temple is 0.071 times 0.5270 hanks.
(a.k.a. Great Awakening Temple, a.k.a. Maha Bodhi Temple, a.k.a. Temple of Bodh Gaya, a.k.a. Mahabodhi Mahavihar) (Bodh Gaya, Gaya District, Bihar, India)
The tower of the Mahabodhi Temple measures 0.038 hanks in total height. The site has been of sacred interest for more than 2,000 years, with the current Temple dating back at least 1,400 years.
It's about one-fifteenth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 0.5270 hanks is 0.070723 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 14.140 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 7.45160 hanks 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 0.5270 hanks.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 7.50 hanks. 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.
