Samina Baig's Achievements
Samina Khayal Baig (Urdu: ثمینہ خیال بیگ; born 19 September 1990) is a Pakistani high-altitude mountaineer who in 2013 climbed Mount Everest and then all Seven Summits by 2014. She is the first and only Pakistani woman to climb Everest and the Seven Summits. She is also the youngest Muslim woman to climb Mount Everest, having done so at the age of 21.
Samina was the first to climb the peak Chashkin Sar (above 6,000 meters) in Pakistan in 2010, which was later renamed Samina Peak after her. She reached the summit of 'Koh-i-Brobar' ('Mount Equality') in 2011. An attempt at the seven kilometre high Spantik Peak ended in failure for Baig, due to adverse weather conditions.Samina Baig became the first Pakistani woman and the third Pakistani to climb Mount Everest on 19 May 2013. She was joined by Indian twin girls Tashi and Nungshi Malik in climbing Mount Everest and they together perched national flags of India and Pakistan side-by-side atop the peak, to spread a message of Indo-Pakistani friendship and peace. In an interview with her brother before the ascent; Baig also stated that the expedition was a demonstration of gender equality. Samina's Brother Mirza Ali, approximately 248m short from the summit of Everest, let his sister go to the summit on her own without his support ,to give message of Women empowerment in Pakistan.
The Express Tribune reported that Baig had not used any supplementary oxygen, although The Hindu reported that she had planned the opposite. Commencing on 1 April, Baig and company climbed the Nepalese south face of the mountain. The expedition to the summit took 48 days, the team traversed the South Col pass in eight hours, with the mountaineers reaching their goal on the sixtieth anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing's first successful conquest of Everest. She was congratulated for the achievement by the President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari
