Boosaule Montes

Boosaule Montes is the highest mountain on Jupiter's moon IO. It lies to the northwest of the large Pele plume deposit formation and reaches an altitude of around 57,418 feet (17,500 m.), higher than Everest and K2 stacked one on top of the other!

It is the tallest non-volcanic mountain in the solar system. It is named after the cave where IO gave birth to Epaphus in Greek mythology.
