Amina Shigri, a Pakistani 15-year-old from Gilgit-Baltistan, has become the first girl to summit Khosar Gang Peak. She was part of a three-member family team of climbers who successfully summited 6,400 meters Khosar Gang Peak located in northern Pakistan.
The other two members of her family who joined her in the expedition were her brother and mother, who were proud of her accomplishment to become the first female from Shigar valley of Gilgit-Baltistan to climb the peak.
On August 26, the family commenced their journey to climb Khosar Gang Peak. It took over one week for the 3 of them to scale the peak located in Shigar valley. Once the news was out on social media, congratulations poured in as the pleasant news was shared.
While speaking to local media, Amina said she had dedicated her latest achievement to Ali Sadpara. While Amina was pleased with her own talent, she encouraged other men in society to let their daughters and sisters come out of their homes and show their real talent.
Amina also said she is disappointed that during the summit, the clouds became a real nuisance, due to which she and her bother, and father were not able to witness K2 in its glory.
