PHOTOS: Arabs on Top of the World by Elias Saikaly/Qatar Television
Thirty-year-old Sheikh Mohammed Al Thani, who on Wednesday became the first Qatari ever to climb to the summit of Mount Everest, is now celebrating with his team.
The four-person group, dubbed Arabs with Altitude, has been trying to raise $1 million for ROTA’s educational projects in Nepal. Al Thani, who goes by Moe, is a brand ambassador for the charity. These photos were just posted to their Facebook page and sent to Doha News.
Joining Al Thani on the climb on Wednesday, Raed Zidan became the first Palestinian man to reach the top of the world’s tallest mountain.
Their fellow team member, 27-year-old Raha Moharrak, became the first Saudi Arabian woman to scale the peak three days ahead of them.
