Seven Summits

Brother and sister team is set out to conquer the world. Both of them are mountaineers and belong to northern areas of Pakistan. The duo is out on a 8 month journey to climb the Seven Summits, 7 tallest mountains one on each continent. 

This feat is not new and many have done it before. But for Pakistan it is for the first time. It is very surprising that Pakistan has the Karakoram Range, a series of mountains that has Mount Everest and K2 among hundreds of tall peaks, but mountaineering is not popular at all in Pakistan.

I am very proud to share the success of Samina and Ali with you and pray that they succeed in their quest. 3 peaks down and 4 more to go.

following is the newspaper clippings of their achievements.
