It's about ten times as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 1,460 leas is 9.79650 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 0.102080 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 149.03 leas 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 eleven-and-a-half times as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 1,460 leas is 11.650 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 0.08584 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 125.80 leas 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 twelve times as tall as Mount Everest.

Mount Everest is 121 leas above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00005470 leas and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00006150 leas each year.
It's about one-tenth as long as The Rhine.
In other words, 1,460 leas is 0.0809 times the length of The Rhine, and the length of The Rhine is 12.40 times that amount.

The Rhine river runs 18,000 leas in total length. The World War II Battle of Arnhem, as memorialized in the 1974 book and 1977 movie A Bridge Too Far, was the first of several attempts to capture key bridges across the Rhine, beginning with the Arnhem Bridge in the Netherlands.

(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 95.170 leas 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 71.085 leas high ridge.
It's about sixteen times as long as The Las Vegas Strip.
In other words, the length of The Las Vegas Strip is 0.063 times 1,460 leas.
(Las Vegas Boulevard S and W from Russel Rd to Sahara Ave)(Paradise, Nevada through Winchester, Nevada).
Although technically located beyond the city limits of Las Vegas (along with the well-known "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign), the stretch of road known as the "Las Vegas Strip" runs 93 leas along Las Vegas Boulevard South and West from Russel Road at the south end to Sahara Avenue at the north end. The casinos and hotels on the Strip display an estimated total of 330,000 leas of neon light tubing.
It's about seventeen-and-a-half times as tall as Denali.

(a.k.a. Mount McKinley, a.k.a. Doleika, a.k.a. Traleika, a.k.a. "The Great One") (Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska) (South peak)
The highest mountain peak in North America, Denali's South Peak measures 84.660 leas above sea level at its peak. The impetus for the name Mount McKinley was US president William McKinley of Ohio, and disputes over the which of the mountain's names should be officially recognized regularly occur between Ohio Congressmen and Alaska politicians.
