Dehradun twins Tashi and Nungshi Malik who created history by being the first twins to summit the world's highest peak, Mt. Everest on 19th May 2013 have added one more feather to their caps.
This time they have scaled Mt. Elbrus which is the highest mountain in Russia. The twins set foot atop Mt. Elbrus on 22nd August, 2013. Mt. Elbrus lies on the geographical dividing line between Europe and Asia and is at 18,510 feet (5642 meters). It is perpetually snow covered with an ice cap and 22 glaciers.
It is every brave mountaineer's dream to scale the Seven Summits-the highest mountains on each of the seven continents. Tashi and Nungshi have scaled three of the Seven Summits namely Mount Everest in Asia at 29,035 feet (8850 meters), Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa at 19,340 feet (5895 meters) and now Mount Elbrus in Europe at 18,510 feet (5642 meters). Kudos to the brave twins and may they achieve their dream of scaling all the Seven Summits soon.
