Raha Moharrak


Scaled Mount Everest Raha Moharrak successfully scaled Mount Everest on 18 May 2013. Approaching from Nepal's side of the mountain, Moharrak was one of 64 climbers who reached the peak after climbing all night from the highest camp, the same starting point pioneers Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay took in 1953. Hailing from Jeddah, Moharrak's past ascents include Kilimanjaro, Mount Vinson, mount Elbrus, Aconcagua, Kala Pattar, Pico de Orizaba and Iztaccihuatl. She joined a small but growing list of Muslim women to climb the world's highest mountain.
