How long is 247.20 leas?

Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about two-thirds as tall as Olympus Mons
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 1.50 times 247.20 leas.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 370 leas. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about one-and-three-fifths times as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 0.630 times 247.20 leas.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 150 leas. 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-and-two-thirds times as deep as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 247.20 leas is 1.65870 times the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 0.602880 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. The first manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep took 4 hours and 48 minutes in 1960. This was the only manned descent to the floor of the Trench until 2012, when director James Cameron made the trip; several other descents have been made since then.
It's about twice as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 247.20 leas is 1.9720 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 0.50710 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 two times as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 247.20 leas is 2.04356 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 0.4893420 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 rises 120.9650 leas above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00005468070 leas and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00006151570 leas each year.
It's about two-and-a-half times as tall as Aconcagua
In other words, 247.20 leas is 2.59740 times the height of Aconcagua, and the height of Aconcagua is 0.3850 times that amount.
(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 two-and-a-half times as long as The Las Vegas Strip
In other words, the length of The Las Vegas Strip is 0.370 times 247.20 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.
