For anyone looking for that perfect dose of inspiration to start a week, this is the story. There is no shortage of Saudi youth inspiring each other in all ways of life but it doesn’t end there – a group of Saudi elders have just crossed a major bucket list item off their lists and it is incredible.

16 elderly Saudi have just made it to Mount Everest’s base camp

The team was comprised, all senior citizens and retirees, went on a 15-day journey organized by local tourist agency Akam Al-Jazerah and reached their destination despite harsh weather conditions and some health issues.

And they hoisted the Saudi flag once they reached the base camp which stands at 5,364 meters

They are, of course, not the only Saudis to climb the world’s peak – several others have done so over the years. In 2008, 30-year-old Farouk Saad Hamad Al-Zuman became the first Saudi to conquer Mount Everest’s peak (at  8,848 meters).

And in2013, Raha Moharrak became the first Saudi woman to ever climb Mount Everest. She is also an avid traveler and shares stories of her travels online.

@anantarajabalakhdar, has a wonderful via ferrata, or “The Iron Path,” on Al Jabal Al Akhdar. It’s perfect for people who are curious about climbing, and want their first experience to be both thrilling and safe. This climbing route, which keeps adventure seekers secure with cables, went beyond my expectations. It is unique, and, despite all my experience, I found it challenging and impressive. The view was breathtaking and the weather was perfect. At the end of the climb, I couldn’t stop smiling! I envy people who have this as their first climbing experience because it’s almost impossible to not be in love with the sport by the end. #shotoniphone #travel #adventure #oman #explore #naturalhair يتمتع منتجع أنتاراتا الجبل الأخضر @anantarajabalakhdar بموقع رائع في فيا فيراتا أو "الطريق الحديد" على الجبل الأخضر انه موقع مثالي لهؤلاء المُهتمين برياضة التسلق ويرغبون في تجربة أولى مُثيرة وآمنة، مسار التسلق هُناك يُبقي الباحثين عن المُغامرة آمنين باستخدام هذه الأسلاك، كانت تجربتي فريدة بدرجة فاقت كل توقعاتي وعلى رغم خبرتي في هذه الرياضة وجدت في الأمر تحدي وصعوبة. كان المشهد مُذهلًا والطقس مثاليًا لدرجة انني لم أستطع التوقف عن الابتسام! أحسد الأشخاص الذين خاضوا تجربتهم الأولى للتسلق هنا لأن من المستحيل ألا يقعوا في حب هذه الرياضة.
