List Description

Asia, as defined by this site, does not include the Caucasus, so the high points of Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia are not included on this list. Also note that the high point of Egypt is in the Sinai, geographically part of Asia, so that is included. Of course, Egypt is normally considered part of Africa.

Also, the highest peak in Indonesia is Carstensz Pyramid, on the island of New Guinea, which is usually considered part of the Australia/Oceania continent. That is why Indonesia, a country mostly in Asia, is not on this list.

It is most likely that no one has yet completed this list, and that no one will for some time. Many of the summits are difficult, remote, and, in some cases, off limits to climbers.
