The Most Treacherous Mountains In The World
For the thrill seekers or those who live for excitement then mountain climbing is the activity for you. With mountains being so different, then it is no surprise that each climbing experience should be so different from the other. A majority of the mountains are famous for their beauty and altitude. Other mountains, however, are infamously known for being so treacherous. With many lives having been lost to the dangerous slopes and unforgiving weather, there is, even more, reason why as you seek pleasure, that you be cautious as well.
The Alpine ranges have Mount Blanc Massif as the tallest mountain, and it has been named the most dangerous because it experiences frequent rock slides and its high altitude makes any fall fatal. The one hundred deaths per year death rate makes it the most hazardous.
Annapurna that is found in Nepal is also a dangerous mountain. Nepal is a very mountainous country so for this particular mountain to stand out as the most dangerous in the country says a lot. With over 26,000 feet thousand as its altitude, is very tall. Several climbers have lost their lives in an attempt to reach the summit. And with a mortality rate as high as 41% it ranks second in the world as a dangerous mountain.
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. So far only two women have managed to reach the summit within a span of 18 years with the last one having climbed in 2004 which is astonishing seeing that other women have climbed tall mountains like Kilimanjaro . All the other women who made attempts to climb this mountain died.
Another dangerous mountain is the Nanga Parbat in Pakistan. With its characteristic steep slopes and an icy ridge it is no surprise many perish on its slopes. The first man to ever reach the summit did so in 1953. The last mountain that is the fifth among the most dangerous in the world is Kanchenjunga in 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.
If you ever have an opportunity to climb these mountains then be very careful and observe any safety precaution to avoid being hurt on these mountains.
