New Delhi: Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday met Tashi Malik and Nungshi Malik, two 23-year-old twin Indian sisters who have scaled summits of six of the highest mountains across six continents.

The girls who hail from Haryana, have lived in various places in the country and are adventure junkies. They also want to do their bit to raise awareness about female infanticide and violence while mountaineering.

The batting legend shared the news of meeting these two girls through his personal account on social micro-blogging site Twitter.

The mountains which they have climbed so far are - Mt. Kilimanjaro (Africa), Mt. Everest (Asia), Mt. Elbrus (Europe), Mt. Aconcagua (South America), Mt. Carstenz Pyramid (Papua New Guinea) and Mt. McKinley (North America).

In another tweet, Tendulkar wished both the girls for their future.

The last and the next stop in their list is to climb Mt. Vinson (Antarctica). These two have a web portal of their own where they have invited the general public to support them with funds in order to complete their #Mission2For7 dream.
