First Saudi woman climbs Everest, makes history
Zee Media Bureau
Kathmandu: After a lot of persuasion, Raha Moharrak`s Saudi family finally agreed to let her make an attempt to climb Mount Everest.
With her attempt, Moharrak became the first Saudi woman to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, according to BBC.
Her four-member expedition team also includes the first Qatari man and the first Palestinian man attempting to reach the summit.
The group is also trying to raise $1 million for education projects in Nepal.
Moharrak, who is originally from Jeddah, is a university graduate and is currently living in Dubai.
As she comes from a conservative Muslim country, achieving goals like this was not easy for Moharrak.
