The Top Ten

Annapurna or K2 the one most dangerous of the world. If we want to find out which mountain is more dangerous for climber. We should to climb these mountain at the winter time, at the same time, the same amount of climber. Let see the bottom line which mountain is more dangerous. So there will be no one argue each other again.
I think k2 is the most fatal mountain because unlike annapurna it has never been climbed in winter.
K2 is no doubt the King of Mountains.. and It's the most difficult mountain to climb. No other mountain can compete K2

Everything points to Annapurna being the most deadly. The stats. The true mountaineers who lost there lives, not amateurs like some that perished on K2. The best mountaineers who lost their lives on Annapurna. And after hearing Ueli Steck discuss he has pretty much completed the hardest climb he will ever make, south face of Annapurna, and may not attempt anything as difficult as this again has convinced me that the "myth" of K2 being the hardest doesn't stand up to the reality of Annapurna and the history the mountaineers left us with.
I've climbed Annapurna. And Everest. Everest despite it being higher did not feel as cold as Annapurna which I don't know why. But maybe it's because I climbed Annapurna in march and Everest in July.
guys, I suggest you do a bit of a research before voting. annapurna really IS the most dangerous mountain to climb.

3Nanga Parbat
Mountaineers refer to it as the “Man Eater”

4Mt. Everest
This is what I think the hardest is mount Maxwell located in Venus you'd
Melt and get squished under 93 pressure bar before you'd even get started


Everest is the highest mountain in the world. Many mountain climbers gone during they try to capture the top of Everest.


Do You Know How Many People Have Died Climbing Mount Everest?!? Never Really hear of deaths on Nanga Parbat or Annapurna


5The Matterhorn
The shape of the mountain is really amazing, although it's very dangerous.


To echo one of the commenter's suggesting Annapurna... "guys, I suggest you do a bit of a research before voting".

Annapurna I (as any mountain that high) is dangerous, but Kanchenjunga is more dangerous.
The statistics being used to vote for Annapurna are for 1950-present, which includes attempts with significantly less sophisticated equipment than is now available - the stats for Kanchenjunga post-1990 show that it's the only one of the 8000M+ peaks that hasn't become easier to climb (with death rate over 22% vs under 20% for AnnapurnaI).

7The Eiger

The level of "commitment" required on the north face makes this a top 5 candidate for sure.
