Selena Khawaja, a 12-year-old Pakistani mountaineer has set out to climb the twelfth-highest mountain in the world, the Broad Peak. The father-daughter mountaineer duo has reached Skardu to attempt the summit. If successful, she will become the youngest person in the world to scale an 8,000-plus meter peak. Brimming with confidence, Selena said: “Insh Allah, I will scale Broad Peak.” Located in the Karakoram range on the border of Pakistan and China, the mountain is the twelfth-highest mountain in the world at 8,047 metres (26,401 ft) above sea level.
