Mountains over 8,000 meters in height (roughly 20,000 feet) are called “eight-thousanders” by climbers and mountain enthusiasts, and Everest, the tallest mountain on Earth, is by far the most popular. As of 2008 it has been scaled 3,684 times. It is also the deadliest mountain, having killed 210 people. The other “eight thousanders” (there are only fourteen in the world) are K2 (also known as Mt. Godwin-Austen), Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Nanga Parbat, Annapurna, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum II and Shishapangma. Most of these mountains are in Nepal or China, but a few are in the Karakoram region of northern Pakistan and one (Kanchenjunga) shares a border with India. None of these mountains get climbed nearly as often as Everest.
