Young Pakistan woman wants to climb K2

Samina Khayal Baig has recently made a pioneering summit of a mountain in Pakistan and some day wants to climb K2. She is only 18 years old. The Pakistan woman wants to be the first woman from Pakistan to climb K2.

2 of her cousins died in 2008 near the bottleneck on K2. She and her village were devastated by their deaths. They were Jehan Baig and Karim Meherban. It was totally unexpected when they died. To her mountains are places of peace and beauty and not death.

She recently made a first ascent of a 6400m mountain in Pakistan. This mountain is called Chashkin Sar. This has been her favorite peak since when she was young. She could see it from her village and it was a mountain that she wanted to climb.
