Most Dangerous Mountains to Climb


The Top TenXW


No lying, k2 mountain is absolutely the number one most dangerous mountain in the world. Some one said annapurna is 41percents is more dangerous than k2 that was wrong. We can not depend on ratio number because ratio number every body can add up any time. K2 is statistically deadliest, and dangerous mountain to all climbers all over the world. The truth K2 is more dangerous than annapurna 3 times, than everest 4 times. K2 is by far than any other mountain surrounded.

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.

K2 is no doubt the King of Mountains.. and It's the most difficult mountain to climb. No other mountain can compete K2

There is no k2 summit in winters.

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.

Annapurna is the most hardest mountain to climb then K2

Melt and get squished under 93 pressure bar before you'd even get started - Captain-Unknown

Everest is the highest mountain in the world. Many mountain climbers gone during they try to capture the top of Everest. - 09ShamsulBahriel

Tallest in the worls, means hardest to climb. Very dangerous mountain.

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).

I agree...cold crazy weather...Avalanches, climbing without ropes at times...there is no safe or easy route up that mountain, there is rough terrain everywhere. Its also the third highest peak which makes it even more dangerous...I would have to put this mountain in the top 2 in terms of danger...This is not to diminish Annapurna or K2, as they are still scary climbs to tackle and K2 is quite technical. So is Kanchenjunga though...

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