List of people who died climbing Mount Everest

Mount Everest (8,848 metres) is the world's highest mountain and a particularly desirable peak for mountaineers. However, because the upper reaches of the mountain are in the death zone, over 200 people have died trying to climb it. The death zone in mountaineering refers to altitudes above a certain point – around 8,000 m (26,000 ft) or less than 356 millibars (5.16 psi) of atmospheric pressure – where the oxygen level is not sufficient to sustain human life.
