The Most Dangerous Mountains in the World


Below is list with the deadliest mountains in the world. Many climbers
have to pay with their lives while trying to conquer those mountains.

Baintha Brakk (Northern Areas of Pakistan) or commonly known as The Ogre Mountain. - , definitely deserves to be mentioned here. Height 7,285m. (23,901 ft). Baintha Brakk is a dangerous combination of altitude, height above local terrain, and steepness. That’s the reason why the first ascent from 1977 was only followed 24 years later, in 2001.

Annapurna is a 55-km long massif in Himalaya with six major peaks over 7,200 m and the 10 highest peak in the world. Since the first ascend in 1950, it’s been climbed by 130 people out which 53 died trying. Fatality rate is close to 40% making it the most statistically dangerous mountain in the world.

Monte Fitz Roy (near to the Argentinta - Chile border) - also known as Cerro Chaltén or Cerro Fitz Roy. The mountain guarded on all sides by steep rock faces that make it extremely difficult for climbing from a technical point of view. Also:unpredictable weather and the relative isolation, Monte Fitz Roy has been considered the most dangerous mountain in the world.

Mount Vinson (Antarctica ), has made it to the list with the most endangered mountains in the world. Though not very high, less difficult and with a lower fatality rate than the other mountains, Vinson is an isolated place with extreme temperatures and unpredictable weather. Accidents, no matter how small, are not an option and could lead to disasters.

K2 (Northern Pakistan) is the second highest mountain in the world also known as the Savage Mountain. One out of four people die trying to “conquer” K2 making it one of the most dangerous in the world, all these because of steep, exposed, and committing nature of all routes, because of the extreme high altitude that lacks in oxygen and the fact that it’s renowned for extreme storms that last for days.

Kangchenjunga, the third highest mountain peaks after Mt. Everest and K2, it translates as The Five Treasures of Snows. Because technology evolved and we now have access to better gear, fatality rates are expeCted to go down, but not on Kangchenjunga. In the recent years, 22 people out of 100 trying to win the top have died because of avalanches and and weather hazards.

The Eiger mountain in the Swiss Alps made it to the list as a legendary dangerous, too. The most dificult part of the Eiger is the north face which got the “nickname” of Mordwand (Murder Wall).

Matterhorn (Located on the Swiss-Italian border) is one of the most renowned mountains in the European Alps. It was one of the last peaks in the Alps to be conquered and not only because of its technical difficulty, the prevalence of avalanches and rockfall, but mostly because of the fear it inspired in early mountaineers. Even nowadays several climbers die each year.

Nanga Parbat (located in Himalayas) is the ninth highest peak in the world. Nanga Parbat has two nicknames that made it famouse; Killer Mountain and The Man Eater. That’s mainly because of its technical difficulty.

Mount Denali is the highest mountain in North America. Also known as Mount McKinley, the 20,32 ft tall mountain is renowned for its extreme weather conditions and temperature that make it a tough ride. More than 100 climbers lost their lives trying to conquer Denali, keeping the success rate at low levels (50%).

Mount Everest - the highest mountain on Earth (8,848 m), makes it hard for climbers to reach its top mainly because of the high altitude where temperatures dip to very low levels causing frostbites to any body parts exposed to air. Exhaustion, extreme cold, the dangers of the climb or the low level oxygen (pressure is one third of sea levels pressure), makes Mt. Everest an undeniably dangerous objective.
