For you travellers out there (either real or virtual ones), there's a mountain in Croatia whose name is Velebit. It stretches by the Adriatic coast. Although the highest in Croatia, it isn't very high (1757 m); there's a National park there ("Northern Velebit" - I attached the link so that you wouldn't have to Google for it). Basically, quite a lovely place.

The question is: what is the name of a mountain that is 8 times higher than Velebit?

It's not on earth, that much is sure. There are no 14 km high mountains here (not even in the ocean).

Uh oh ./fa/1637/0/, I thought I'll fool you all ./fa/1987/0/, but didn't succeed ... Frank is right - it is Velebyte ./fa/1964/0/.

Obviously, my next puzzle will have to have a better camouflage than National Park, height in meters and similar mumbo-jumbo.
Congratulations, Frank! ./fa/451/0/

Nice try, the rest of you!

And you better make sure that there is no valid 'normal' answer to it, as Pavonis Mons, as tahpush mentioned, was in fact a correct answer Smile

What "valid normal answer" are you talking about?!? How can you expect anything normal when I ask a question? ./fa/1587/0/

Besides, I'd award Tahpush ONLY IF he revealed where on Earth he found what PRESENTATION=RO means ./fa/1599/0/.
