QATARI ADVENTURER SCALES MOUNT ELBRUS – HIGHEST PEAK IN EUROPE

“Hello from the top of Europe,” Sheikha Asma Al Thani wrote on her Instagram post on Monday as she announced a successful summit on Mount Elbrus, which at 5,642m is the highest peak in Europe.

Sheikha Asma Al Thani, the Director of Marketing and Communications at the Qatar Olympic Committee and an avid adventurer, is aiming to become the first woman from the Middle East to complete the Explorers Grand Slam, a challenge to reach the North Pole and South Pole as well as all of the seven summits (Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Puncak Jaya, and Mount Elbrus).

To date, Sheikha Asma has conquered four of the challenges, including her recent feat in Mount Elbrus, Aconcagua in 2019, North Pole in 2018, and Kilimanjaro in 2014.
