Mountain Climbing Accidents: Deaths On Mount Everest

In honor of the youngest person to climb Mt. Everest reaching the summit last week, here is a list of people who weren't able to finish the journey. Mount Everest is the highest mountain on earth and many mountain climbers have died attempting the climb; hoping to stand on top of the world. At 8,848m, Mount Everest is the tallest mountain of the world's fourteen 8,000m peaks and a killer for fatal mountain climbing attempts. Till now there have been 1,924 ascents of Mount Everest and around 179 mountaineers have died in these killer peaks. A blind man has stood on the summit; snowboarders have dared direct descents down her steepest slopes. With all these mountaineering adventures, surprisingly, the death toll of mountain climbers has decreased over the years.
