Move on from the latest trend in fashion for men, and the recommended gym workouts for men as you need to pack your bags for the deadliest mountain peaks in the world. Unlike Mt. Everest, these mountains are certainly not meant for everyone as only the most experienced climbers can think of scaling the steepest and the dangerous peaks in the world.
Roughly 50% climbers have made it to the top, since its first ascent in 1950. The most dangerous mountain has the record of continuously being ruthless to the climbers as trekking becomes nearly impossible due to fall of unpredictable glaciers, avalanche, and storms. The 10th highest mountain in the world simply dwarfs of the human spirit of conquering the nature
The size of the mountain is not only the fear factor for mankind but also the height of unpredictably of the glaciers, weather, and the slopes. With the highest level of technical difficulty level to climb up, K2 is known for steep sections of rock, and unforgiving glaciers that get collapse without warning.
3. Nanga Parbat
The Ninth highest mountain peak in the world is also popularly known as ‘The Man-Eater’. The cruelty of Nanga Parbat can be witnessed from the southern side – 15000 foot the Rupal Face is the largest mountain face on earth. The route to the top is full of hazards and risky topography that makes even the most skillful climbers go numb.

The first ascent to this one of the dangerous peak in the World resulted in the death of four of its members who were on the descent from the mountain; the north face of Matterhorn was climbed only in 1931
