Nishat Mazumder, a Bangladeshi woman, has climbed to the fearsome and unforgiving peak of Mount Everest, the world’s tallest mountain at more than five miles high on Saturday morning. It is undoubtedly a very memorable and glorious day for Bangladeshi women because she steps for the time on this peak on behalf of them.
This year two Bangladeshi girls are heading towards the mountain to scale up the Mount Everest as another Bangladeshi girl, Wasfia Nazreen, has already reached the Everest base camp who has started her campaign to conquer the seven summits in the world. Musa Ibrahim was the first Bangladeshi to have conquered the Everest on May 22, 2010.
Nishat Mazumder ascended to Everest’s 8,850-meter-high (29,035-foot-high) summit from the northern side of the mountain in Nepal on Saturday morning with M A Mohit, the second Bangladeshi to have conquered the Everest. It is reported over Banladeshi media that Nishat and M A Mohit have made it to the top around 9:30am. Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has congratulated Mazumder on her success.
Mazumder conquered Himalaya’s Mera Peak (6,653.78 metres) in 2007, Singchuli Peak (6,501 metres) in 2008 and Makalu Peak (8,493.3 metres) in 2009.
