Since the Earth's largest bulge is just one degree south of the equator, the summit of Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador, which is located there, is the highest point above the center of the planet. With this in mind, this means that Mount Chimborazo is closer to the moon and stars than Everest's highest peak. oceanservice.noaa.gov
