Where is the thickest on earth?

The thickest part of the earth refers to the place where the distance between the surface of the earth and the center of the earth is the largest.

At first glance, the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, seems to be the farthest from the center of the earth and should be the thickest place on the earth, but this is not the case.

According to artificial earth satellites, the thickest place on the earth is Mount Chimborazo in South America. The mountain is located at 1°28′ south latitude and 78°48′ west longitude. It is located in the slightly bulging middle part of the earth. It is 6272 meters above sea level and the distance from the peak to the center of the earth is 6384.1 kilometers.

Although Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world, its straight-line distance from the peak to the center of the earth is 6381.949 kilometers.
