The First Omani Woman to Climb Everest

Nadhira Al Harthy has become the first Omani woman to climb Mount Everest, according to a variety of sources. In her last tweet on May 16, she said, “We leave the main camp. 5,300 m for the second camp directly, 6,400 m as the final stage of climbing to the summit and from it to the third and fourth camp will be in about seven days. If the weather conditions as expected, May 22 will be the night of arrival at the summit of Everest.”

With a Master’s degree in geography, Nadhira wanted to step outside the box, film-maker and adventurer Elia Saikaly, who has been following Nadhira, in a social media post saying, “I trailed Nadhira on the way down to base camp through the icefall and not only was she rappelling like a boss, she was also filming with her iPhone while crossing horizontal ladders.”
