Annapura 1 is the world's 10th-highest mountain, with a total height of 8,091 meters.
Sheikha Asma bint Thani Al-Thani shares on her Instagram:
Annapurna is not for the faint of heart, and it will test every part of your body and mind.
Climbing mountains teaches me many things, but one of the most important is the value of the people you surround yourself with. Your community.
People around you, as I already stated, make a difference. They either take you to the top or leave you behind. Choose wisely.
7 out of the 14 8000m mountains complete! Let’s do this.
