Yup, you got that right! Abeer AlOmar & Haneen AlRumaihi, alongside 15 others from multiple nationalities, hiked 70+ KM of the Himalayas on a 7-day trip and in harsh weather conditions. They embarked on this adventure to raise more than 25,000 Kuwaiti Dinars which were donated to a charity for a mobile health clinic and an educational center in India. The two ladies reached the highest point, 3660 M above sea-level to overlook Mt. Everest!

What an adventure! I should try that one day, except hiking was never my thing! Take me sailing across the globe, now that’s a challenge 😀
