Sobamanjaro is the mountain at the center of the Tiptoe Kingdom, and the tallest point in The World, standing at 487 feet. Sobamanjaro is the stage for the Long Sauvage Battle, whose beard runs down the entirety of the mountain.
King Long Sauvage tries to prevent King Corobo and his Royal Guard from navigating the winding path up the mountain and reaching the top by attacking him with his magnificent living beard, as well as using help from his subjects the Mounties, and several UMA.
The Manjaro Cavern goes through the mountain, but is closed off after Sauvage's defeat. This Cavern is maze-like and features a number of forks in the path, meaning Corobo must choose the correct path six times in order to proceed, by following the directions on the sign outside.
After Corobo defeats Long Sauvage, Sobamanjaro becomes open for tourism, and the Hiking Club led by Uncle Tin sets up a telescope at the top. Sauvage will still be there, standing on his hands. Chasing him up the Mountain and talking to him at the summit causes several fiery holes to appear on the Mountain path which can only be put out by the Mountie in order to dig up their treasure.
At the summit stands the previously mentioned telescope, which allows Corobo to see his Castle in a manner similar to the Watchtower. A crane which once carried Sauvage's food up the mountain still stands here, as well as a Wonder Spot location and Sauvage himself.
Sobamanjaro is a portmanteau of Kilimanjaro, a real life mountain, and ソバ (soba) which comes from Long Sauvage's Japanese name ロングソバージュ (Rongusobāju). This means that "Sobamanjaro" is an incorrect translation, and should more closely resemble "Sauvamanjaro", named after Long Sauvage himself.
