Man's humble reverence for the mountain dates back to ancient times. And people have been trying for a long time to share the glory of conquering the top of the mountain. Mountaineering is not a trivial matter, it requires rigorous practice, training, mental and physical strength. Bekayada does not hesitate to arm the mountain. As thousands of Hindustani prisoners died on such journeys, a mountain in Afghanistan has become known as Hindu Kush or the killer of Hindus.

Anyway, let's take a look at some of the most difficult mountain peaks in the world. Note that most of these mountains are part of the majestic Himalayas.

Annapurna (Nepal)

An expedition led by Maurice Hedgehog won the Annapurna Summit in 1950, becoming the world's first 8,000-meter-high mountain peak. Since then, 191 people have conquered this mountain peak. Annapurna has an elevation of 8,091 meters. The tenth highest peak in the world is actually known as Annapurna-1. The other peaks of the Annapurna Massif are more than 7,000 meters high.


Annapurna is named after the goddess Annapurna. He is the provider of food and nutrition to the people. When the goddess is angry, famine occurs. All in all, Annapurna is one of the most dangerous mountains in the world. So far 61 people have lost their lives here.

A massive snowstorm and avalanche in 2014 killed 43 people in Nepal, one of the worst accidents in the history of mountaineering. Although one in three people die trying to win Annapurna, it is one of the most popular summits in the world.

K2 (China / Pakistan)

K2, the highest peak in the Karakoram Range, has an elevation of 8,611 meters, the second highest after Everest. K2K is considered one of the toughest summits in the world. So far, one out of every four people has gone to win. So far 8 people have lost their lives trying to set foot on this dangerous peak. However, this challenge has probably increased the interest in K2 among mountaineers. Otherwise, how to manage about three hundred campaigns! The first K2 summit was won in 1954 by Arditto Desio, an Italian citizen.

K2 has a notoriety for its special hatred towards girls. A team of five women mountaineers held the K2 Summit in 1986. All three of them died on the way down. The other two also died in another mountain expedition within a few years. Finally, in 2004, a Spanish mountaineer was able to break the curse of K2. So far, he is still alive.

Several movies have been made about K2. No one has been able to win K2 so far this winter.

Nanga Parbat (Pakistan)

At 8,126 meters high, Nanga Parbat is ninth in the world in terms of height. This mountain forms the western edge of the Himalayas. Its name literally means 'naked mountain'. The Tibetans know it as a huge mountain. Nanga Parbat is notorious for witnessing numerous accidents.

One of the most difficult achievements of the mountain expedition was to conquer the bare peaks that suddenly rose from the surrounding hills. The first to succeed was Austrian mountaineer Herman Buhl, in 1953. Earlier, the mountain killed 31 people. An average of 22 percent of the explorers died trying to conquer Nanga.

Bare mountains;

In the thirties the Germans made several attempts to conquer Nanga. All fail. In one expedition in 1937, the whole expedition was destroyed. The Germans were finally able to conquer this peak in the sixties. In 2013, fundamentalists killed several explorers there.

Heinrich Harer, a German explorer, was preparing for a mountain expedition when World War II broke out. The British captured Harrer on suspicion of spying. He fled to Tibet, where he became acquainted with the current Dalai Lama. A film called Seven Years in Tibet has also been made based on this story.

Baintha Brack (Pakistan)

The height of Baintha Brack, part of the Karakoram mountain range, is 7,285 meters. Doug Scott and Chris Bennington won the summit in 1977. Doug Scott broke his leg on the way down, and the whole team was horrified by the blizzard. It took 24 years to conquer this very steep mountain of granite for the second time, at least 20 attempts failed. Only once after that victory in 2001, in 2012, a human foot fell on the head of Bintha Brack.

Baintha Brack;

The base camp below Baintha Brack is again notorious for bear nuisance. Evil black bears roam around the camp every now and then hoping for food.

Kanchenjunga (India / Nepal)

Kanchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world at 8,586 meters. What will happen if there is an aesthetic name, conquering Kanchenjunga is a very difficult task. Since 1905, more than fifty people have lost their lives in Kanchenjunga. Kanchenjunga but in fact no one has literally won.

Many people in Nepal and Sikkim worship this mountain. The group that first reached its peak, they came to the king of Sikkim with a promise that no one would set foot on the highest peak of Kanchenjunga. Since then all the expeditions have followed this rule. Lepchara, who lives at the bottom of Kanchenjunga, believes that this mountain is inhabited by Yeti. The secret of immortality is also hidden under its white horn. Until 1852, Kanchenjunga was known as the highest peak in the world.

Manaslu (Nepal)

In 1956, the Japanese conquered the mountain. It is the eighth highest mountain in the world at 6,163 meters. For the British, Mount Everest is an object of special pride, and for the Japanese, Manaslu. Whatever it is, winning Manaslu is not straightforward at all. At least eighty people have left their lives in the lap of Manaslu.


The area around Manaslu, surrounded by many glaciers, is very popular for trekking. In the valley of Manaslu, red pandas, snow leopards and other rare animals can be seen, and giant yaks can climb the snow-capped mountains.

Everest (China / Nepal)

Sagarmatha (Peak of Heaven), Cho Mo Lung Ma (Mother of the World), Holy Mother aka Mount Everest is 8,848 meters high. There is, of course, some tension between the Chinese and Nepalese governments over height. There is also disagreement as to whether ice or rock should be considered the highest. Excluding the ice, Everest stands at 8,844 meters. Anyway, this is the highest peak in the world. In the nineteenth century, this crown was bestowed on the forehead for the welfare of Radhanath Sikder. However, when naming Colonel Wah, the chief of Radhanath Sikder, he omitted the local name and used the name of his predecessor, Sir George Everest. The British argued that they were forced to give Everest a new name because of its many local names.

The honor of conquering Mount Everest is an absolute desired object for mountaineers. 375 people have died so far, of which many unfortunate remains could not be recovered. However, the number of victories is not less. Since the first ascent of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953, more than 4,000 people have received this rare honor, including several Bangladeshi nationals.


The amount of risk is much higher due to the huge height of Everest. Occasionally the wind speed around the peak exceeds 300 kilometers per hour. Everest, more than eight thousand meters high and like thirteen mountains, does not skimp on the chance of death due to avalanches, blizzards, shortness of breath or winter. Indigenous Sherpas live at its foothills. Everest's place in the way of life and religion of the inhabitants of Everest is very high. It also has a significant presence in Tibetan Buddhism.
