Shocking Photos Of Dead Bodies On Mount Everest

29 May

We see now and then people climbing the world’s highest peak, Mt.Everest, and people being proud about scaling these heights. Putting up flags of their own country and displaying victory signs in photographs. All that looks good on the newspapers and television.

But these mountaineers, climbers leave a huge amount of waste and dirt on Mt. Everest (See Below Photo). And sometimes they die as we will see in this list.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field. Amazing blog!|

    • Harshal Carpenter

      Thank you ! I’ll try that :)

  • Richard Davis

    Thank you for posting these. It might be worth mentioning that people can pay more than 40,000 for the attempt. There are ladders and guide ropes to assist, but if you injure yourself in the “Dead Zone,” you will be left to die.

    • Harshal Carpenter

      Thanks to, I got these images from there. I thought it might be helpful for people who aspire to climb mountains. :)

  • Kuhika

    n dis is simply an awsm article…. 10 on 10 man! :)

    • Harshal Carpenter

      Thank You Very Much :)

  • Rob Green

    great article, but you have missed a few easily obtained details, such as the body pictured propped up in a resting position, is not assumed to have been resting, it is that of Hannelore Schmatz after she ignored advice to descend, and instead bivouac’d near the summit, dying in the night.

    • Jim Bogle

      Thank you for the update. Which picture, by number, is that of Hannelore?

      • Harshal Carpenter

        This one might be her.

  • Amanda O

    This was wonderful. Watching the reality show a few seasons back this made the impact all that more. Thank you!

    Seems like a bunch of rich weenies are the only ones who can afford to go

    • Bogmire

      Shut your mouth, I highly doubt you would fare near as well as those “weenies”, idiot.

      Hey just FYI. Good Friday didn’t stop your welfare check!

    Very upsetting.

  • ‘Bobbie Britt

    I find it quite disturbing and cold that these people could so callously walk by the bodies of dead climbers in an attempt just to be able to have bragging rights about reaching the summit. Even more so how they could leave someone to die. If I had a choice of continuing, or stopping and rendering whatever assistance I could, even if they could not be saved, I would not continue. I cant help but feel disgust for the climbers that walk by these bodies.

    • publiciteeguy

      What are the climbers supposed to do? They can’t carry these bodies down the summit!

      • Amanda Rush

        If they aren’t dead yet then they are still people. You shouldn’t be able to continue on your happy way when you know someone is dying and begging for help. Its sad.

        • HoustonBaynes

          Unfortunately, you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Either that, or you do know, and you are just trolling.

          • Patricia Jo Griggs-Satterfield

            Sort of seems like you may be trolling…..I am sure there is some service that these people would be able to receive, dead, or alive.

          • HoustonBaynes

            Seriously! Stop it! This is not a hike in your local city park. Unless you have a large, personal, dedicated rescue team following you all the way up and down, there Is absolutely nothing a fellow climber can do for you once your legs stop working. There is a reason they call it The Death Zone. Do some research before you continue embarrassing yourself.

          • Patricia Jo Griggs-Satterfield

            And I am so sure you have been there numerous times to be such an exoert….next best seller for a biok ugh?

          • John Anderson

            Yeah the Sherpas have set up coffee shacks all up the mountain… You climb Everest knowing if you get in trouble there is no help, it must be hard to fathom from your comfy living room but this is not a place Humans were meant to go. Saying that, it must destroy your mental state knowing you cant help and having to leave someone to die.

          • Patricia Jo Griggs-Satterfield

            I am so sure you have climbed it five times from your living room.

          • John Anderson

            Never said I did. But I have the ability to find, process and retain information, this allows me to comprehend issues other than putting my shoes on the right feet. You probably wouldn’t understand

    • Catherine Jones

      The climb up Mt. Everest is very dangerous. Most people never make it to the top. They stop half way or a quarter of the way. the air is thin and you can die of frost bite within minutes. If someone attempts to save another person, they are more likely to die themselves. The effort to climb takes everything the human body can push to do. It is a death sentence for both parties. That is why they leave them on the mountain. It is not for bragging rights or because they are cold or cruel. It is inevitable that death will happen if you are not prepared or you try and save someone who is going to die.

  • Nickcrowley81

    Yeah and most of the info that goes with these pictures is incorrect. You would die trying to help these people. Also the science behind what happens to your brain at 28,000 feet is horrifying. Saying something like “Oh I would save them and help them down” is just as ignorant as the press that hound the survivors after an Everest disaster. This is a common human problem; not being able to fully understand and put yourself in someone’s else’s shoes before you start blathering about it would be different if you were up there.

  • Amanda Rush

    I’m not a climber but I am so deeply disturbed by the fact that so many of these people were able to fall down or take naps without anyone in the group noticing! HELLO what ever happened to the buddy system? Why don’t they require climbers to carry identification? There should be no reason there are so many unidentified bodies! Also if they fall off a ledge why not leave them as a reminder of that danger instead of rolling their bodies off to be hidden like it never happened? Disrespectful! Who would pay so much money knowing that if they are dying no one will save them much less take their body down for a proper burial?

    • eviltaco

      A person’s weight quadruples, at least, at those altitudes. A team of 10 people would have issues carrying one person off Everest if something happens.

      Everyone that goes for a summit attempt is aware of it. Once you get above the death zone, if you can’t carry yourself back down there’s literally not a human alive who will be able to do it for you.

    • HoustonBaynes

      Do some research, for Pete’s sake! The internet is full of first-person accounts of what it is like to be up in the death zone on a steep mountainside. You can read about rescues and rescue attempts. Above a certain level, the only people who are going to be rescued are people who can still climb down under their own power and just need some *very* minimal assistance. If they are still alive but can’t walk, the only thing that can save them is a substantial group of rescuers with rescue equipment. That does not exist up there.

    • Stacey Seth

      When you sign the papers to climb Everest, you also sign a waiver stating that you fully understand that your body will be left on the mountain should you die or if you become unconscious or injured within the death zone. or your family can pay $30,000 in an attempt to retrieve the body.

    • Ninyur

      Most people think that walking by the bodies as if they are not there is far more disrespectful than cutting them loose or pushing them over an edge. It is also disrespectful to the Sherpa people to have bodies visible on the mountain. So it’s both respect for the dead and respect for the native culture.

    • StopLyingFolks

      Just watch the fkn movie everest . Then all your stupid as comments coming out of your cum collection device will cease

    Guy on page 8 was trying to bust one last nut.

  • Tigeress Bleu

    yes i understand that some of you cant fathem why others could pass a person dying, but if there is nothing they can do unless they want to die as well. the best thing you can possibly do is comfort those who may not make it. you all should realize we escape death everyday. but if you choose to do something even more so dangerous you have a higher percentage of dying. this is life. and shit does indeed happen. no matter how experienced you are.. just be sure you understand that if you do A or B you can possibly be having your last adventure.. sorry but its the truth and life.

  • User

    How about just one page that we can scroll down on you jackass website?!?

    • Harshal Carpenter

      Hi, I am sorry User that turning so many pages was unpleasant experience for you but lot of images was making the page load very slow. I wish I could have done something for it. Sorry again :)

  • Chrystal Childress

    Why would they leave them up there don’t these people have families that would like to bury them properly. It’s sad to think they are left behind and just forgotten or now a lawn ornament for passerbys. Kind of heart breaking.

    • Rachel Newman

      It is physically impossible to get them down, people have died trying to do just that. It is impossible for a plane/helicopter to fly that high as well.

  • Juan Pellico


    • Rachel Newman

      Because helicopters can’t get that high, no one has that technology.

    • Mark_in_Carp

      You know there at 29,000 feet. Even if these mountains were in a”developed country” a helicopter will not be able to fly that high. Try reading it may help you

    • John Anderson

      Lol work it out genius

    • Ninyur

      They do have helicopters, quite a few of them. The air is too thin for a helicopter to fly higher than Camp 2. No one’s going to sign up for a suicide mission.

    • LCT

      Do a little research and thinking before internet-yelling things that aren’t true.

  • Anderson

    Sir Edmund Hillary said it best about the climbers nowadays:

    ““I think the whole attitude towards climbing Mount Everest has become rather horrifying. The people just want to get to the top. It was wrong if there was a man suffering altitude problems and was huddled under a rock, just to lift your hat, say good morning and pass on by.”

    “They don’t give a damn for anybody else who may be in distress and it doesn’t impress me at all that they leave someone lying under a rock to die.”

    “I think that their priority was to get to the top and the welfare of one of the members of an expedition was very secondary”

  • Ninyur

    That’s not David Sharp in the first picture, that’s an actor recreating a scene for Nat Geo

  • Ninyur

    Number 2 is an actor, not David Sharp. Number Number 8 is Hannalore Schmatz, number 9 is Scott Fischer.

    • LCT

      Number 9 is not Scott Fischer, nor is 13 Rob Hall. No one’s seen Rob’s body in years and that’s not where Scott still lies.
