Qatari youth Fahad Badar made history after he became the first Arab to scale Mount Everest and Lhotse peaks during the same journey.
The Ministry of Culture and Sports commented on the achievement through its official account on the social networking site Twitter, saying Fahad Badar “is the second Qatari to reach the peak of Everest, and the first Arab to reach the two peaks on the same trip.”
Badar became the first Arab to make history with 30 people who arrived at Everest (the highest mountain in the world) and Lhotse (the fourth highest mountain in the world) within 24 hours.
The young Qatari had previously pledged at the start of his unique adventure to raise his country’s flag over the two mountain peaks.
