Kathmandu —- Qatari princess Sheikha Asma Al Thani has successfully climbed the 8,091-meter high Annapurna Mountain located in Annapurna Rural Municipality-4 Narchang, Myagdi, according to Mingma David Sherpa, the Director of Elite Expedition. The princess climbed the mountain along with famous mountaineer Nirmal Purja, reaching the peak at 4 pm on Saturday. She completed all the necessary training for the climb after coming to Annapurna-3 Dana, the birthplace of Nirmal Purja, a month ago. Princess Al Thani holds a world record in the field of mountain climbing and has climbed seven out of 14 peaks above 8000 meters, including K-To’ Lhotse, Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, and Manaslu. She aims to complete all 14,000-meter-high peaks and is participating in mountaineering with this goal in mind. Annapurna is the tenth highest mountain in the world, and Maurice Hergoz from France was the first to climb it in 1950.
