25 Most Dangerous Jobs in the World

18. Mountain Guides


Many people often climb mountains as a way of adventuring while others get paid to climb them. Well, being a mountain guide won’t certainly make you wealthy, but it’s a job that’s intellectually stimulating, physically challenging and pleasing. However, all these features come into question considering the calamities that come with mountaineering these rugged and harsh environments.

From going through ice and jagged rocks to the possibilities of long falls and suffering from low air pressure, being a mountain guide is unquestionably one of the most dangerous occupations. The risks of being swallowed by devastating avalanches make it even worse.
