Selena Khawaja, a 12-year-old mountaineer from Abbottabad, has reached Skardu and she is determined to climb the 8,047-meter high Broad Peak, located in the Karakoram mountain range about eight kilometres (five miles) from K2.

At the age of 9, Selena set a world record by climbing the world’s third highest peak, 6,050 meters, Minglik Sar.

Selena Khawaja has also set a world record by climbing the 5,765 meter high ‘Quz Sar’ Peak.

Selena Khawaja, a young climber, has been trained by her father, who has set up a fitness club at home to prepare her to play with dangers, given his daughter’s dedication and passion.
