Mount Everest, Earth's highest mountain, has been host to numerous tragedies; over 300 have died on the mountain, with deaths occurring every year since 1978, excluding 2020 when permits were not issued due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The most notable events occurred during the 1922 British Mount Everest Expedition, 1970 Everest Disaster, 1974 Everest Disaster, 1996 Everest Disaster, 2014 Mount Everest avalanche, and 2015 Mount Everest avalanches.

K2

K2 is the world's second highest mountain. While its summit is at a lower altitude than the summit of Mount Everest, it is considered to be a much harder mountain to climb, due to its steep faces, and extreme weather. As of February 2021, 377 people have completed a summit of the mountain, while 91 have died trying, a staggering 4:1 ratio.
