Most Famous Mountaineers

It is important to achieve firsts. It can even be said that what brought fame in mountaineering is to achieve the firsts. There are 14 mountains higher than 8,000 meters, and these are known as Eight-thousander. Although some of the most legendary mountaineers in the world history started their first climbing attempts to these mountains in the late 19th century, the first successful climb took place on 3 June 1950 with the climb to the Annapurna summit.

And after that, the most famous mountaineers in the world began to sign firsts in a row and became much more recognizable. Their work has set an example to the generations that follow them, and has always triggered the desire to achieve more difficult. Generations inspired by the world's most famous mountaineers have repeatedly climbed to the highest peaks in the world. During these climbs, many mountaineers, including some of the most famous mountaineers in the world, lost their lives, but this never prevented new talents from climbing into these mountains again and again.

Both in summer and winter, with or without oxygen support, but always as a team, mountaineers manage to reach the summits. The successes of some mountaineers made the mountaineering tradition continue. We've put together some of the most famous mountaineers of all time and listed them for you. The basis for mountaineering is to try again, even if you fail.
