10. Annapurna One

Annapurna I is the highest of the Annapurna Massif range in the Nepalese Himalayas. At 8,091 meters (26,545 feet) Annapurna I is the tenth tallest mountain on earth and one of fourteen more than 8,000 meters above sea level. It was the first of these tall mountains to be climbed. However, with a fatality rate of 32 percent among those who try to reach the summit, Annapurna I is also the most dangerous of all mountains over 8,000 meters high.
