2) Annapurna The Annapurna I is not the highest but the world's most dangerous mount to climb. As of 2007, there had been 153 summit ascents, and 58 climbing fatalities on the mountain. This gives us fatality to summit ratio of 38%, hich is the highest of any of the eight-thousanders, and means, on every four people who reached the peak, one died.
