Pakistani climber Naila Kiani has added another achievement to her list of accomplishments by becoming the first Pakistan woman to reach the top of Broad Peak, the world’s 12th highest peak, in northern Pakistan.
By doing this, the mother of two became the only woman in Pakistan to have climbed all of the country’s 8000-meter peaks.
The Alpine Club of Pakistan said Thursday morning that Naila had climbed Pakistan’s fifth and last 8,000-meter peak.
“Naila successfully climbed Pakistan’s fifth and last 8,000-meter peak at 2:03 a.m. today,” said Karrar Haidri, secretary of the Alpine Club of Pakistan (ACP).
“She is also the first woman from Pakistan to climb Broad Peak, finish climbing all five 8,000-meter peaks in Pakistan, and reach the top of eight 8,000-meter peaks around the world,” he said.
“She has climbed many mountains before, including the famous Everest, the hard K2, the powerful Lhotse, the dangerous Annapurna, the mysterious G1 and G2, and the beautiful Nanga Parbat.
Naila’s unwavering determination, unmatched skills, and unshakable attitude have inspired mountaineers and adventure fans all over the world.
