Mauna Kea on the Island of Hawaiʻi is the highest peak in the U.S. State of Hawaiʻi and the entire Pacific Ocean. Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain on Earth as measured from base to summit.

This article comprises three sortable tables of the 12 major mountain peaks of the Hawaiian Islands and the U.S. State of Hawaiʻi.

Topographic elevation is the vertical distance above the reference geoid, a precise mathematical model of the Earth's sea level as an equipotential gravitational surface. Topographic prominence is the elevation difference between the summit and the highest or key col to a higher summit. Topographic isolation is the minimum great circle distance to a point of higher elevation.

This article defines a significant summit as a summit with at least 100 meters (328.1 feet) of topographic prominence, and a major summit as a summit with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence. An ultra-prominent summit is a summit with at least 1500 meters (4921.3 feet) of topographic prominence.

Highest major summits[edit]

The following sortable table lists the 12 highest mountain peaks of the Hawaiian Islands with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence.
