Op, go do your research well. K2 is the second highest peak/mountain in the world. It is between China and Pakistan and towers above 28,000 feet so please your list is flawed.

My dear, Ondo is only my state of origin. Born and bred in Lagos and still working and living here. Sky scrappers ain't natural phenomenon.

I'm sure you have a state of origin. Abeg mention one for there. Guess you're from Abk as you've mentioned Olumo rock earlier! Sure you dunno Cocoa house in Ibadan have existed before those sky scrappers on the Lagos island. Maybe you should have mentioned Eko Atlantic City at the Bar beach as a natural phenomenon cheesy grin
