Top 10 Most Dangerous Mountains to Climb

The Top Ten
1 Annapurna

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.

2 K2

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.

3 Mt. Everest

Tallest, steepest, coldest, and harshest mountain in the world. So why would K2 be more dangerous than Everest? Mt. Everest's peak is too high to get 2% oxygen in the air. K2 has about 4% oxygen in the air. So, Everest has less air. 2 years, no one person got to the top of Everest. K2 has at least one person every year get to the top.

This dangerous heard of people dying on Mt. Everest, one guy came to my school in grade 9 and did an assembly about climbing Mt. Everest and he got a frost bite and lost a few fingers

You will put Mt. Everest in first after you see the movie.

4 Nanga Parbat
5 Kangchenjunga

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).

6 The Matterhorn

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

7 Mount Washington

Just last year a person died because she wasn't prepared. A storm came in and she got hypothermia. My group woke up one morning in the Lakes in the Clouds hut, and it was 27 degrees out. In July. It snowed twice, and the rocks were so wet one of us almost fell to our death. There were 8 veteran hikers in our group. We all admit Mt. Washington has some dangerous trails. Oh, yeah. The wind speeds got up to 80 mph. I didn't know windburn was a thing, but it was.

Certainly not highest (although very prominent), the mountain's unpredictable weather and wind should not be taken lightly.

8 Siula Grande
9 Denali

WOW! only 10? MT.McKinley is in Alaska,which is COLD! Now amagin that 20.000 feet up. COLD right. The snow on McKinley is the unpacked kind and with it's raging winds that can cause a visibility range of -1. Ok so snow blinding you and it so dark! around 5-7 hours of light a day. Like I said BLIND! and if the snow is unpacked and there is wind one wrong move and you'll cause an avalanche. Also the snow is so deep you could take 1 step and get impaled by ice! Don't you just hate hail? Well on McKinley hail is the tips of ice shards fly in at 65 mph. It may be smaller than Everest but just as, if not more dangerous
