Mount Everest

Danger has long been part of the allure of climbing the world’s highest peak. Avalanches killed 35 climbers on Mount Everest for the past three years — including 16 in one devastating day in 2014. At least one person has died climbing the mountain in Nepal every year since 1900. Courtesy Photo.
