The SCO is sponsoring and completely supporting this trip, which will see Samina Baig become the first Pakistani female to raise Pakistan’s flag at the summit of the 8,611-meter high mountain. The objective of this programme is to promote women’s empowerment while also growing awareness about climate change and global warming.

“My spirits are high as I request prayers from my well-wishers for completing this challenge,” Samina Baig said, confident and thrilled to begin on this adventure that has been her lifelong ambition. My heartfelt gratitude to SCO for constructing the BTS system at Broad Peak and K-2 Base Camp at Concordia.”

“The mountaineers and trekking groups like us would be able to keep connected with their families and help in emergency circumstances because of the cellphone coverage and internet access,” she added.
