Naila Kiani became the second woman from Pakistan to reach the top of Mount Everest.
Naila Kiani, a Pakistani hiker, reached the top of Mount Everest on Sunday. She was the second woman from her country to do so.
In 2013, Samina Baig was the first Pakistani woman mountain climber to reach the top of Everest.
Kiani also became the first climber who wasn’t from Nepal to reach the top of the hill named after Sir George Everest in 1865.
Details show that the climber reached the top of Everest, at an altitude of 8,849 meters, at 8:02 a.m. on Sunday.

Kiani is also a mother of two, a boxer, and a banker in Dubai. She is the only Pakistani woman to have climbed Mount Everest and four other eight-thousanders in just two years. She had climbed Annapurna I in Nepal, K2, and both Gasherbrum I and II before this.
She now wants to climb Lhotse, the fourth-tallest mountain at 8,516m, while she is in Nepal. In 2018, when pictures of her wedding photoshoot at K2 Basecamp went popular on social media, Kiani became known for the first time.
Mount Annapurna rescue
Kiani was one of the two Pakistani climbers who were saved last month while coming down from Mount Annapurna. She climbed the 8,091m high hill in Nepal with Shehroze Kashif, the youngest mountain climber in the world.
The two hikers were saved from the top of the mountain a day after they got there because bad weather made it hard for them to get down.
Kiani was the first woman from a South Asian country to reach the summit of Annapurna.
