Qatari female climber Sheikh Asma Al Thani wants to conquer Everest. As the first woman in the Middle East, she wants to achieve the feat of climbing the mountain tops of every continent.
Thani, a member of the Qatar Olympic Committee, arrived in Kathmandu last Thursday and is preparing to go to Everest Base Camp.
In mid-May, he will try to reach the height of 4,748 meters on Everest. If her efforts are successful, she will be the first woman in Qatar to climb the world’s highest mountain.
He has previously traveled to Kilimanjaro in Africa and the Aconcagua Mountains in Argentina and the North Pole. Asma hopes her efforts will inspire other female mountaineers to follow in her footsteps.
