Most Dangerous Mountains in the World

Mt. Everest at the border of Nepal and China

It is the tallest mountain in the world; it is also the deadliest mountain. If you decide to go up the mountain, you might even come across dead bodies left there. It has led to the death of a lot of hikers. Most deaths have been linked to avalanches, falls, serac collapse, exposure, frostbite, or health problems related to conditions on the mountain

The first person to climb this mountain was a Polish woman back in 1986. In the following 18 years, 5 women tried to do this too but they ended up losing their lives. Three of them died as they descended the mountain, while the remaining two died in the nearby mountain. Later in 2004, Edurne Pasaban, a Spanish mountaineer, successfully climbed the morning and came out alive.

This is one of the mountains that most people love climbing, about 20, 000 people comes here every year. It might look so easy to climb but there are a lot of dangers along the way like avalanches and falling rocks.
