First Pakistani woman Samina Baig and her brother Mirza Ali to scale Mount Everest

- Pakistani

Here is a wonderful moment of pride for Pakistan as 21 years Samina Baig and her brother Mirza Ali, who is 29 years old, made history by climbing the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest without using supplemental oxygen.

Samina Baig and Mirza Ali had two Indian twin sisters, Nughsi and Tashi, in their team.

All four of them were aiming to raise the Pakistani and India flags together at the peak and spread the message of peace and friendship. This is a sign of peaceful relationship between the two countries.

The mission of climbing the world’s highest mountain Mount Everest started from April 1, 2013, and ended on 19 May, 2013, at 7:40am.

Samina Baig became the first Pakistani woman mountaineer to climb up the world’s highest mountain, and her brother Mirza Ali became the third and the youngest Pakistani male to climb up Mount Everest (8848 metres).

Samina Baig and her brother Mirza Ali had been climbing for the last three years together.

In 2010, Samina Baig became the first to climb the virgin peak Chashkin Sar (above 6,000 meters) and now this is called the ‘Samina Peak’.

In 2011, she conquered another virgin peak, named ‘Koh-i-Brobar’ or the ‘Mount Equality’. Samina Baig and her brother could not climb Spantik Peak, which is 7,027 metres high because of bad weather.

Without concentrating on the differences between Pakistan and India, both the countries should be unite to celebrate this historic moment.

Pakistan has plenty of potential tourist attractions, from fine examples of Mughal and Buddhist architecture to some of the world’s highest mountains and its people are so talented and brave.


Our country has snow-peaked mountains and vast deserts where people live in a charming, rich culture. So many foreigners were used to visit our country but in recent years this trend has become slow because of not paying attention on Pakistan tourist industry.

The government of Pakistan has to take special actions to boost the tourism industry in Pakistan. It is quite possible to attract foreign tourists to our beautiful Northern areas once again.

Our attention on tourist industry can make this country once again a hub of foreign and local tourists, and eventually this can make Pakistan economically well.

The entire nation congratulates both the siblings Samina Baig and her brother Mirza Ali,   on this wonderful achievement. Pakistan is proud of them. Pakistani nation should make efforts to bring many more positive and proud moments for the beautiful country, Pakistan.

Pakistani nation is very excited and proud of the young lady mountaineer for her historic achievement and for introducing Pakistani women as a symbol of talent and great potential.

These talented people are the asset of country. There is a dire need to boost their potential to excel in every field of life.

Let’s hope Pakistani nation will continue to work hard and keep Pakistani flag flying high in the world.
