Mount Everest rises 38,708.90 spans above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak â€” raising it by 0.0174978 spans and shifting it to the northeast by 0.019685 spans each year.
It's about one-three-hundredth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 138.520 spans is 0.00345 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 289.5 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 40,240 spans above the seafloor.

It's about one-three-hundred-fiftieth as deep as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 138.520 spans is 0.002905 times the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 344.28 times that amount.(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)

Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 48,000 spans. 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.
