There are so many people who are afraid of height but in this world some people who love to cross their boundaries and like adventures which normal person will never think of. Climbing the mountain is adventure but climbing the deadliest mountain known in the world need some guts. Many climbers attempted with hope to par the top but unfortunately the nature shown them only glimpse of what it is capable of. Here are some dangerous mountain on earth to climb..
5. ANNAPURNA, Central Nepal (26,545 ft.)
On the Annapurna mountain, which is the 10th highest mountain in the world, about 130 climbers had decided to climb the avalanche prone top, however 53 have died trying to et there. These incidents are making Annapurna mountain fatality rate of 42% which is the highest in the world.
Its the history that Annapurna peaks are among the world’s most dangerous peaks to climb. If we talk about more recent history, using only figures from 90’s and after, Kangchenjunga has a higher fatality rate. From March 2012, there had been 191 attempts of summit climb of Annapurna I Main however 61 climbing fatalities witnessed on the mountain. This fatality-to-summit ratio is the utmost of any of the eight thousanders. In fact, the ascent via the south face is considered by some the most complicated than all climbs. In October 2014, at least 39 people were killed due to snowstorms and avalanche slide on and around Annapurna, which is the Nepal’s worst ever climbing disaster.
4. NANGA PARBAT, Gilgit-Batistan (26,657 ft.)
It is famous as the Man Eater, this rocky monster in Kashmir is an massive ridge of rock and ice. The mountain is the ninth highest in the world and its southern side is kind a tallest mountain face on the planet. The Nanga Parbat has claimed 31 lives before it was conquered by Austrian Herman Buhl in the year 1953.
The climbing attempts kicked off very early on Nanga Parbat. In 1895 Albert F. Mummery had an expedition to the mountain, and they reached almost 6,100 m (20,000 ft) on the Diamir (West) Face however Mummery and two Gurkha companions later on died climbing the Rakhiot Face.
In 1930s, Nanga Parbat became the key of German attention in the Himalayas. The German mountaineers were powerless to attempt Mount Everest, because only the British had entrée to Tibet. Initially German efforts decided on Kanchenjunga, to which Paul Bauer led two expeditions in 1930 and 1931, but due to its long ridges and steep faces Kanchenjunga was more harder than Everest and no expedition made much progress. K2 was known to be harder still today, and its remoteness meanns that even getting its base would be a major undertaking. Nanga Parbat was therefore the highest mountain easy to get to Germans and also deemed reasonably probable by climbers at the time.
3. SIULA GRANDE, Peruvian Andes (20,814 ft.)
In year 1985, the duo of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, had journey chronicled in the book and movie Touching the Void, attempted the western face of Siula Grande: a steep, vertical ascent that had never been done. They made it to the summit but Simpson fell during getting down, which break his leg. Then Yates had lower the injured Simpson down by rope and lost sight of him over a cliff. After one hour passed, with his place slipping away, and Simpson get unable to secure himself, Yates cut the rope. unbelievably, Simpson survived the 100 ft. drop into a crevasse. Over the next 3 days he subsisted on melted snow and hopped the 5 miles back to camp. He was arriving shortly before Yates, he was assuming Simpson had perished, was owing to depart for home.
2. K2, border of Pakistan and China (28,251 ft.)
This is the second highest mountain in the world, this peak has a malicious reputation, especially when it comes to female climbers. The first woman to par the summit was the legendary Polish climber Wanda Rutkiewicz, who got to the peak in June 1986. Over the next 18 years all 5 female climbers who summited this peak were killed. Three died during the gettingt down K2, two others on close by mountains. Rutkiewicz also rotten close by, on Kangchenjunga in 1992. The curse was finally busted in 2004 by Edurne Pasaban, a 31-year-old Spanish mountaineer, who remnants alive to this day.
Mountain K2 is known as the Savage Mountain results to the extreme difficulty of ascent. It is the second-highest casualty rate among the eight thousanders. With around 300 successful base and 80 fatalities, about one person dies on the mountain for every 4 who summit. It is more hard and hazardous to reach the peak of K2 from the Chinese side; thus, it is usually climbed from the Pakistani area. Unlike Annapurna, the mountain with the highest fatality-to-summit rate 191 summits and 61 fatalities), or the other 8 thousanders. Fact is K2 has never been climbed in winter.
1. EVEREST (29,029 ft.), border between Nepal and China
Dye to its marquee status, it would be easy to suppose that this is the deadliest mountain of them all. But pound for pound, Everest claims a quite small percentage of climbers (9%), considering the number that attempt it every year. Mount Everest attracts many people and climbers, some of them wer highly experienced mountaineers. There are 2 main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (known as the standard route) and the other from the north in Tibet. While not posing significant technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest shows dangers such as altitude sickness, weather, wind as well as significant objective hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu Icefall. As of 2016, there are still over 200 corpses buried on the mountain, with some of them even serving as milestone
