It's about one-nine-thousandth as tall as Aconcagua
In other words, 0.690 ells is 0.00011328 times the height of Aconcagua, and the height of Aconcagua is 8,827.70 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 6,090.90 ells height at its peak. Although there is no definitive evidence that members of the indigenous Inca civilization ever reached the peak the mountain, numerous archeological sites have been found on the slopes of the mountain, including a naturally-embalmed Incan mummy was discovered on a 4,549.40 ells high ridge.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as long as Calangute Beach
In other words, the length of Calangute Beach is 10,000 times 0.690 ells.
(Goa, India) (approximate)
One of the most popular tourist destinations in Goa, Calangute Beach, the "Queen of Beaches," stretches about 7 km in length.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 0.690 ells is 0.00008910 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 11,200 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 7,740 ells above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.0035 ells and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00394 ells each year.
It's about one-ten-thousandth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 0.690 ells is 0.000086020 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 11,630 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 8,049 ells 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 one-fifteen-thousandth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 0.690 ells is 0.0000723420 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 13,823 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 9,538.10 ells 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-fifteen-thousandth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 14,000 times 0.690 ells.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 9,600 ells. 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 one-thirty-five-thousandth as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 34,000 times 0.690 ells.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 24,000 ells. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
