    KARACHI: Samina Baig on Thursday became the first Pakistani woman to summit the highest mountains on each of the seven continents of the world.

    Baig, who hails from Hunza in Gilgit-Baltistan, was on a mission to raise the Pakistanis flag on the highest peaks of the seven continents.

    She achieved her target with her brother Mirza Ali on July 24.

    Mirza Ali on their Twitter and Facebook accounts announced that the brother and sister duo had reached the summit of Mount Elbrus in the Caucasus mountains.



    The summit means that Samina Baig has summitted all the highest peaks on the seven continents.



    Mirza added that they had managed to reach the summit at 9am local time.

    Previously Samina Baig and her brother Mirza Ali had climbed Mount Everest on May 19, 2013. Samina had become the first Pakistani woman to climb Everest.

    Prior to climbing Mt Elbrus, the duo had climbed Mount McKinley in Alaska in June 2014, and Mount Puncak Jaya in Indonesia in March 2014.

    Last year, they climbed to the summits of Mt Aconcagua in South America in December 2013, Mount Vinson in Antartica in January 2013 and Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania in February 2013.

    Baig added that since Everest was closed this year due to an avalanche, he would attempt it again next year, which would then make him and Samina the first siblings to complete the seven summits on seven continents.
