Taniquetil by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Taniquetil, the great Holy Mountain, said to be the tallest peak in the world, that stood among the Pelóri on the borders of Valinor. According to the Annals of Aman, it was raised 3,450 Valian Years (or 33,000 solar years) after the Valar arrived in Aman. The mansions of Manwë and Varda were on this mountain, and the Vanyar came to dwell at its base.

Also known as Oiolossë ("Everlasting Whiteness") in Quenya and Amon Uilos in Sindarin.
