Arabs With Altitude are standing on top of the world.
Sheikh Mohammed Al Thani, Raed Zidan, and Masoud Mohammed, three friends whose mission to climb Everest began four years ago, arrived on the Summit together at 10:00AM, May 22nd. They are the only team currently at the Summit, and they are enjoying having the view from the top of the world all to themselves.
They were led to the Summit by guides Michael Horst and Vern Tejas. The team was filmed along the way by cameraman and friend Elia Saikaly. And they couldn’t have completed the climb without the help of their summit Sherpa, Kami Rita, Phur Temba, Ang Pemba, Lakpa Nuru, Namwang Jangbu, Fura Kancha, and Passang Kajee.
It was a historic climb for Sheikh Mohammed Al Thani, as he became the first Qatari to climb Everest. Likewise for Raed Zidan who became the first Palestinian man to reach the Summit.
The team wishes to thank all their family and friends who supported them along the way and helped make their dream become a reality. They could not have done it without you, and they thank you!
Now begins their descent back to Camp 4 at the South Col. I’ll continue to post updates of their progress as they head down the mountain and begin their journey home.
