It's about as tall as Maxwell Montes.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 2 leagues. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about one-and-one-tenth times as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 2 leagues is 1.0193 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 0.981070 times that amount.
(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 1.96220 leagues below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about one-and-one-fifth times as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 2 leagues is 1.2120 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 0.82510 times that amount.
(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 1.6560 leagues above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about one-and-one-fourth times as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 2 leagues is 1.260 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 0.7940 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 1.590 leagues above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.000000720 leagues and shifting it to the northeast by 0.000000810 leagues each year.
It's about one-and-three-fifths times as tall as Aconcagua.
In other words, 2 leagues is 1.59610 times the height of Aconcagua, and the height of Aconcagua is 0.626530 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 1.2530 leagues height at its peak. Although there is no definitive evidence that members of the indigenous Inca civilization ever reached the peak the mountain, numerous archeological sites have been found on the slopes of the mountain, including a naturally-embalmed Incan mummy was discovered on a 0.935930 leagues high ridge.
It's about one-and-three-fifths times as long as The Las Vegas Strip.
In other words, the length of The Las Vegas Strip is 0.630 times 2 leagues.
(Las Vegas Boulevard S and W from Russel Rd to Sahara Ave)(Paradise, Nevada through Winchester, Nevada).
Although technically located beyond the city limits of Las Vegas (along with the well-known "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign), the stretch of road known as the "Las Vegas Strip" runs 1.20 leagues along Las Vegas Boulevard South and West from Russel Road at the south end to Sahara Avenue at the north end. The casinos and hotels on the Strip display an estimated total of 4,300 leagues of neon light tubing.
It's about one-and-four-fifths times as tall as Denali.
In other words, 2 leagues is 1.7940 times the height of Denali, and the height of Denali is 0.55740 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount McKinley, a.k.a. Doleika, a.k.a. Traleika, a.k.a. "The Great One") (Denali National Park and Preserve, Alaska) (South peak)
The highest mountain peak in North America, Denali's South Peak measures 1.1150 leagues above sea level at its peak. The impetus for the name Mount McKinley was US president William McKinley of Ohio, and disputes over the which of the mountain's names should be officially recognized regularly occur between Ohio Congressmen and Alaska politicians.
