The Most Treacherous Mountains In The World

If you enjoy extreme activities and have never climbed a mountain then you should consider doing so. With mountains being so different, then it is no surprise that each climbing experience should be so different from the other. Most of these mountains are known for their beauty and majestic height. Other mountains, however, are infamously known for being so treacherous. Have in mind the steep slopes and extreme weather can claim a life in a matter of seconds if extreme caution is not observed.

Mount Blanc Massif is a perilous mountain because it has frequent rock slides and a very high altitude. It has claimed the most lives at about one hundred deaths per year. The highest death rate ever recorded is that of Mount Blanc Massif.

Annapurna that is found in Nepal is also a dangerous mountain. It is of significance when this mountain is labeled the most dangerous in a country full of dangerous mountains. It is extremely tall with its highest peak at over 26,000 feet. Many climbers died in an effort to reach the highest peak. It 41% death rate makes it the second most dangerous in the world.

Mount K2 in China remains to be the most challenging mountain to climb. It is not a surprise to find very few climbers who have made it to the peak seeing that the mountain has steep climbs, unstable ice pillars and steep slopes that make the climb a hazard. Many women have managed to climb Kilimanjaro but not much can be said for K2 where only two women have climbed to the summit in18 years with the last one climbing in 2004. All the other women who made attempts to climb this mountain died.

Nanga Parbat is also one among the most dangerous mountain in the world. With an ice ridge that is very steep, it is not a surprise when very few people survive to tell the tale. The first successful climb was in 1953, but by then, over 30 people had lost their lives. Kanchenjunga is the is the fifth most dangerous mountain and is found at the border of Nepal and India. It’s deceiving beauty can cause many to climb it unaware of the danger that lurks within. It’s icy avalanches have been the cause of many lost lives. As the years progress it has not stopped causing deaths.

The next time you get a chance to climb these mountains, follow safety protocol and make sure you are thoroughly prepared for the climb to avoid being another person that has lost their life or has been injured to these treacherous heights when it can be prevented.
