Norwegian climber in Pakistan all set to summit K2 & Nanga Parbat
Kristin Harila, a Norwegian woman, is planning to climb K2 and Nanga Parbat. It is said to be as part of a two-month attempt to summit all five 8,000-meter peaks in Pakistan. Therefore, the mountaineer traveled to Pakistan as part of her effort to break the previous record. Also, it was for the fastest ascent of the world’s fourteen tallest mountains in six months. Thus Harika has already climbed six summits greater than 8,000 meters in the last two months, including Everest. Nirmal Purja, 36, of Nepal, surpassed the previous record of six months and six days in 2019. So it was featured in a popular Netflix documentary, and the 36-year-old hopes to match or better his achievement to revolutionize how the mountaineering world views female athletes. Climbing mountains, according to Harila, has always been done by “strong, macho males” in the past and in the present.
“Non-sportspeople believe that men are superior to women in terms of athletic ability. Changing the status quo would necessitate drawing attention to the issue. Plus demonstrating that women are just as capable as men.” The majority of the sport’s best climbers and guides are men. Plus with only a few female mountaineers obtain media attention or financial assistance for their expeditions. According to Nepali government figures, women made up almost one-fifth of the over 1,000 climbers. They visited Nepal’s prominent Himalayan peaks this year. She made headlines last year when she became the fastest woman to reach the summits of Mount Everest and Mount Lhotse in Nepal, her first large climb. Thus, she achieved it in 12 hours last year, but she smashed her own record by four hours this year. So, Her previous two albums were insufficient to convince significant firms to fund her new effort.
