Karachi: In a remarkable display of determination and skill, Naila Kiani, the trailblazing Pakistani mountaineer, has successfully conquered Mount Manaslu, the eighth highest peak in the world, standing tall at 8,163 meters above sea level.

Already having etched her name in the annals of mountaineering history as the first Pakistani woman to conquer all five of Pakistan's 8000-meter peaks, her triumph on Mount Manaslu now sets her apart as the first Pakistani woman to summit the nine highest peaks in the world.

The triumphant ascent was fully sponsored by the BARD Foundation, marking yet another milestone in Naila's illustrious climbing career. Naila, a young and immensely talented climber hailing from Pakistan, is no stranger to breaking records and pushing boundaries. Her latest achievement, scaling Mount Manaslu, has solidified her position as one of the world's premier female mountaineers. After reaching the summit, Naila graciously spoke to the media about her extraordinary accomplishment, emphasising her goal to inspire and empower young women with aspirations similar to hers.

"This wonderful journey I'm currently on has given me the chance to realise my lifelong dream. I intend to make the most of this opportunity to inspire and encourage other girls like me who might be looking for someone to guide them as they begin writing their own stories of success," Naila declared, with gratitude towards the BARD Foundation for their unwavering support throughout her endeavors.

Naila Kiani's mountaineering ambitions show no sign of slowing down. Her next targets include Mount Cho Oyu and Mount Shishamangma, both formidable peaks standing at 8,021 meters and 8,012 meters above sea level, respectively.

Naila's unwavering determination, resilience, and spirit of adventure have not only elevated her to international acclaim but have also paved the way for other aspiring women to follow their dreams in the same field. Her remarkable journey has become a source of inspiration not only for her country but also for the global community. Mehreen Dawood, the Managing Director of the BARD Foundation, expressed her admiration and enthusiasm for Naila's accomplishments.
