As stated numerous times before . . . we have the tech. Where do you think pyramids came from? They are man-made mountains. In fact by this reasoning, we have had the technology to build mountains for thousands of years.

Do we have the ability to create artificial mountains. Sure. The real question is do we have a desire to create one.

Monte Testaccio in Rome is a specific example. About a kilometer at the base. It does not meet the dimensions of your request but it does illustrate that creating an artificial mound was possible 2000 years ago. I see no reason why a larger one could not be constructed from our far more voluminous garbage in modern times.

I've got a question for you. Assuming it is possible do you know of any reason to create an artificial mountain? Other than the sheer pleasure of creating a mountain of garbage, of course.

BAUSCH and Lomb, along with NASA has had a patent on an artificial sun for awhile:

Virtual Similator


Solar Simulator


I doubt a mountain would be too difficult.

Thanks for the replies guys. Just wondering incase one day I get filthy rich and hire a construction crew to build me my very own Yosemite valley in my huge backyard full of hiking trails lol.

Ok so probably even a billionaire couldn't afford to build a mountain range with current technology, but hopefully things change when I'm old enough. Thanks guys
