Before Ali, Samina Baig climbed the Everest in 2013 and then scaled all Seven Summits by 2014. She reserved the title of first female mountaineer’ from Pakistan to accomplish all seven summits. Ali, a sibling to Samina Baig, is the first male climber from Pakistan to win the title. Thus, both titles have gone to the Mirza clan.

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.
