Top 5 Deadliest Mountains. Mountains can be deadly even without people trying to climb them. These deadly mountains are notorious among mountain climbers though as they are the most dangerous and challenging to conquer! 5. The Matterhorn Found on the border between Switzerland and Italy, the almost 15000 ft. tall Matterhorn was one of the last great Alpine peaks to be climbed. The first ascent, in 1865, ended in tragedy when four of the party fell to their deaths on the way down. The fatality rate is also among the highest of all Alpine peaks, with technical difficulty and the prevalence of rockfall and avalanches to blame. 4. Mont Blanc Western Europe's highest mountain, which straddles the border between France and Italy, may not be as challenging as the Himalayan giants on this list, but far more people have died trying to conquer it. Due to its popularity among hikers and climbers, the Mont Blanc massif, which includes a number of other peaks, has claimed up to 8,000 lives. 3. K2 The second-highest mountain on Earth, K2 - in Pakistan's Karakoram Range - has the second highest fatality rate of the 14 "eight thousanders", but unlike Annapurna, it has never been scaled in winter. For every four climbers that reach the top, one dies trying. Extreme storms, some lasting for several days, are common near the summit, and K2 has the nickname "Savage Mountain". 2. Annapura Fewer people (60) have died trying to conquer Annapurna, which, at 26500 ft. above sea level, is the 10th highest mountain in the world. However, just 157 have been brave enough to attempt to reach the top, giving it the highest fatality-to-summit ratio ( 38 %) of any mountain over 26200 ft. The ascent via the south face is considered by some to be the hardest climb of all. Annapurna was first climbed in 1950 and the first successful attempt via the south face was in 1970. 1. Nanga Parbat Known affectionately as the Man Eater, this craggy monster in Kashmir is an enormous ridge of rock and ice. The peak is the ninth highest in the world and its southern side features the tallest mountain face on the planet. Nanga Parbat claimed a redicilous 31 lives before it was first conquered by Austrian Herman Buhl in 1953.
