Pakistani woman climbs world’s seven highest peaks

ISLAMABAD: Samina Baig became the first Pakistani woman to climb seven highest peaks in seven continents in under eight months, media reported on Sunday.

Baig, 23, has completed the challenge of climbing seven of the highest mountains around the world, including Mount Everest which she scaled in May 2013, Dawn online reported.

Baig accompanied by her brother Mirza Ali, flew out to Russia, after Alaska, where they went on to scale the highest mountain in Europe, Mt Elbrus in Russia, which is 5,642 metres tall, bringing their " Seven Summits" adventure to an end.

Baig was part of an adventure diplomacy mission, funded by passionate climbers outside Pakistan, a few embassies in Islamabad, with no support from the Pakistan government.

Belonging to Pakistan's mountainous Hunza Valley, both climbers had summited Mt McKinley, Alaska, reaching 6,168 metres into the sky July 3.

Samina Baig became the first Pakistani woman to climb to the top of that highest peak in North America.

In March, she and Mirza Ali reached the top of the 4,884 metres-high Mount Carstensz Pyramid, the highest peak in Indonesia.

Great achievement, but title of thread is misleading, its not Worlds Seven Highest Peaks, it should be Highest peaks of Seven Continents.
