Karrar Haideri, Secretary Alpine Club of Pakistan (ACP) said, “It is a great achievement for the country as Mirza Ali and Samina are also the world’s first siblings to accomplish this feat.”
The Seven Summits – Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Vinson Massif and Carstensz Pyramid are the world’s tallest peaks, one on each continent and ascending all 7 peaks is considered as one of the most difficult mountaineering challenges in the world.
Mountaineering trend is developing in Pakistan and we hope to see more Pakistanis achieving the feat.
