The correct answer is: Shishapangma
Shishapangma is the 14th highest mountain in the world. Standing tall at 8027 meters (26,335 ft) above sea level, it is also called Gosainthan. Geologist Toni Hagen explained the name as meaning a "grassy plain" or "meadow" (pangma) that is placed above a "comb" or a "range" (shisha or chisa) in the local Tibetan. It signifies the "crest above the grassy plains".
