Word of the day: 해발 ~ altitude above sea level

I’m spelling my way through one of my new childrens’ books and came across this word: 해발

This is one little word that carries the meaning of how far something is above sea level. I’m amazed there is a single word for that.

해발 1200-1300 미터 ~ 1200-1300 meters above sea level

      I bought them in Foyles on Charing Cross Rd (I think the Korean section is on the 2nd floor) 🙂 I will make sure to specify that in my book reviews as well when I get that far 🙂
