KATHMANDU: Princess Sheikha Asma al-Thani of Qatar has successfully climbed the world’s eighth highest mountain, Manaslu, on Monday.

According to the company that arranged her ascent, she reached Manaslu peak at 10:30 this morning. She is currently on her way back to the base camp.

Princess Al Thani arrived in Nepal last spring with the goal of climbing the seven highest peaks of the seven continents and stepping on two poles.

Earlier, she had climbed Mount Aconcagua at 6,969 meters in South America, Mount Kilimanjaro at 5,895 meters in Africa, and Mount Elbrus at 5,642 meters in Europe.

Asma described her endeavor as an attempt to promote women’s empowerment in Qatar and inspire the new generation of women in the region to carry big dreams.
