Annapurna Massif

We just learned about the mountain peak Nanga Parbat.

The next highest mountain peak is Annapurna Massif in Nepal.
It's name means full of food, or Goddess of the Harvests.

This mountain is one of the most dangerous to climb, and has the highest rate of death for all mountains in the world.
For every 3 people that have tried to climb the mountain, one has died.

In 2014, 39 people were killed from avalanches and snowstorms on the mountain.
