(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 two-thirds as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 5,418 ells is 0.67550 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 1.480 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-and-a-half times as long as The Indianapolis Motor Speedway
In other words, 5,418 ells is 1.53920 times the length of The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the length of The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is 0.6496880 times that amount.
(Speedway, Indiana) (rectangular oval course)
The rectangular oval course of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is 3,520 ells. 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.
It's about one-and-a-half times as long as Daytona International Speedway
In other words, 5,418 ells is 1.53920 times the length of Daytona International Speedway, and the length of Daytona International Speedway is 0.6496880 times that amount.
(Daytona Beach, Florida) (tri-oval course)
The tri-oval course of the Daytona International Speedway, upon which the NASCAR Daytona 500 is run, is 3,520 ells 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 5,418 ells.
(Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, Hollywood, California) (approximate length)
The Hollywood Walk of Fame is approximately 3,400 ells. Gene Autry, most famous as the singer of "Back in the Saddle Again" and as the writer and singer of "Here Comes Santa Claus," is the only entertainer to have a star in every category — film, television, recording, radio, and theater. One of Autry's stars is also one of only two stars which have been stolen from the Walk and never recovered.
