Life is full of wonders and of these wonders could be the height of human beings. In this article, I will be exploring the tallest man in the world and will also introduce you to the few more tallest men.
Tallest man in the world- List
His full name was Robert Pershing Wadlow. He was an American citizen who became popular because of his giant height. He was 8 ft & 11.1 inches in height & was weighed about 199 kg. He was famous as the name of Alton Giant. He was born on February 22, 1918 & died on July 15, 1940. He was the tallest man in the world but we don’t have certain pieces of evidence because in his times the media and technology were not as evolved as today.
2. Sultan Kosen
He is a Turkish farmer & he was recorded as the tallest man in the world in Guinness World Record in 2011. He has a lot of records in his hands, for example, his height was measured (8 ft 1 in) 251 cm by Guinness World Record in 2009. He also holds the record of largest hands (11.22 in) & largest feet ever of a living person. His left foot is 1 ft 2 inches in size & right foot is sized 1 ft and 1.98 inches. He was shocked When he was called for the Guinness World Record and he said, “I had never thought that I would be included in the family of Guinness World Record”. In his family, all others are normal in size.
He very interestingly defines the advantages of being the tallest man in the world for example, according to him, he helped out his mom in changing the bulbs or in hanging anything & disadvantages that he faces were about his clothes and shoes.

He was the tallest man in the world until January 15, 2005, when Bao Xian was recognised as the tallest man after him. His height was measured (7 ft 9 in) 235 cm by Guinness World Record in 1999. He always enjoys the research & solving the puzzles. He has a talent for solving the complex puzzles.
He was the pride of Pakistan, as I am also from Pakistan so I better know him than anyone else. Alam channa was born in 1953 & was died in 1998. He was from Pakistan. He was also one of the tallest men in the world. His height was measured (7 ft 8 in) 232 cm by Guinness book of World Record. He was the tallest man between 1982 & 1998. He worked in a circus where someone saw him & wrote a letter to Guinness book of world record with his photos. After a month an official from Guinness Book of World record came to the Pakistan to meet Channa and then finally Channa was declared as the tallest man in the world.
