There is no limits to the highest number you can count to, because whatever number you can ever think of no matter how big, you can always add another number to it and make it even bigger. The largest number for which we have a name is “googolplex”, which is a one followed by a googol zeroes (a “googol” being a one followed by a hundred zeroes).

The world's largest number according to the Guinness Book of Records is an upper bound, derived by R. L. Graham, from a problem in a part of combinatorics called Ramsey Theory. Graham's number cannot be expressed using the conventional notation of powers, and powers of powers. If all the material in the universe were turned into pen and ink it would not be enough to write the number down.

The world's highest number is an upper bound from a mathematical problem in a section of combinatorics known as the Ramsey theory. This number was derived by R. L. Graham and it cannot be written using the normal notation of powers.

Graham's number, named after Ronald Graham, is a large number that is an upper bound on the solution to a certain problem in Ramsey theory. It holds the record for the largest number ever used in a serious mathematical proof and has slightly over 4 million integers.
