10-year-old Pakistani girl becomes youngest to scale 7,000-metre peak

Selena Khawaja, a 10-year-old Pakistani girl, has become the youngest climber anywhere in the world to scale a 7,000-metre-high mountain.

Selena Khawaja broke the record after summiting the 7,027-metre-tall Spantik peak on Wednesday—the youngest person to do so. Spantik or Golden Peak is a mountain in the Karakoram subrange in Gilgit Baltistan’s Nagar Valley.

According to her father Yousaf Khawaja, Selena started climbing when she was only eight years old.

“In less than one year, she was able to do Miranjani (3,000m) round trip in half the time,” the father told reporters in March last year.
