Correct on all counts, fighting falcon...

A clarification-For India, I am looking for a mountain completely within Indian borders...
Same with Russia-completely within Russian boundaries

Also, for the bonus, I do not count the pacific islands as part of Australasia/Oceania (exception-Tasmania) so basically for the Australia part I am looking for the 2nd highest mountain in Australia...
