List of cities by elevation

The following is a list of the world's major cities (either capitals, more than one million inhabitants or an elevation of over 1,000 m [3,300 ft]) by elevation. In addition, the country, continental region, latitude and longitude are shown for all cities listed.

While the elevation of cities may vary enormously, this list should represent a notional elevation for each city which is verifiable and reasonably acceptable for comparison. The city proper must have a population of 175,000 or higher to be on the list.
