10 World’s Most Dangerous Mountains for Rock Climbing

  

6. Kangchenjunga, Himalayas

The world’s third highest mountain sits on the border of Nepal and the Indian state of Sikkim. It is worshipped by the people of Darjeeling and Sikkim who refer to it as the Five Treasures of Snow after its five high peaks. In 1955 a British Expedition became the first group to reach the top but never actually set foot on the peak. This was because of a promise to the Maharaja of Sikkim who had asked that the top of the mountain remain untouched. Every climber to this day has followed the same tradition.
