Oman, Muscat. Nadhira Alharthy, aged 41, is the first Omani woman to have climbed Everest and is the director of the Citizenship Department at the Ministry of Education. The day Nadhira scaled Everest was her 40th birthday: she had wanted to do something different as a gift to herself. It was very hard, she stayed in the mountains for 2 months to get used to the lack of oxygen. It was cold, everything was different, she was not a professional climber: she just had a dream. In Oman, she would climb everything, from canyons to mountains. For two years, she would wake up very early at weekends to go climbing without telling her parents. They didn’t understand at first, they asked “why do you need to do this? Why are you so different from the other girls?” Nadhira is divorced and lives with her family and her brother.
