It was International Mountain Day over the weekend, and that made me curious to know the tallest mountains and highest elevations points in Idaho.

Before you keep scrolling for more pictures and details, do you know the highest elevation point in Idaho? Do you have any guesses? I’ll be honest, there’s no way I’d know this stuff if I wasn’t looking it up right now haha!

Lucky for us, we don’t have to climb the tallest mountains ourselves to find out more about this — the information is already out there.

A recent article from List Wire shares the highest and lowest natural elevation spots in each state.

They said...

“What’s the highest natural elevation in your state? What’s the lowest? While the United States’ topography provides plenty to marvel at across the map, it’s not uncommon for people to take a proverbial swing and miss when answering those perplexing geographical questions: A mountain? Some hill, a body of water, a hole, what? So, let’s take care of this earthly enigma on a little e-hike through the hills, mountains, sea-level dwellings and below, across the U.S.”

So, what can we learn about Idaho?

Well, the highest elevation in Idaho is actually Borah Peak, and that’s measured at 12,662 feet.
