List Description

This list is a work in progess and it is not complete. The goal is to list every primary basin (defined as a basin of a river that flows into the sea, plus logically-defined internal basins) that has a high point over 5000 meters. But there are many very small coastal rivers that drain high summits that I have not yet researched. The river that drains Orizaba in Mexico is perhaps the most glaring omission, but there are others in Chile and perhaps Asia where I have overlooked a basin.

Still, the list shows many of the high peaks of the world that are also primary drainage basin high points.
