Samina Baig, a Pakistani climber from the village of Shimshal in Gilgit-Baltistan, is the first Pakistani woman to reach the top of K2.

Samina Baig and her strong team of seven Pakistanis reached the top of K2 at 7:42 this morning (Friday). It is known to be the most dangerous and hardest summit in the world.

At 8,611 metres above sea level, K2 is the second highest peak in the world.
