On July 19th, at 2.30 pm, after a long and difficult ascent, Malang and Amrudin have finally reached the top of the highest peak in Afghanistan. Fulfilling the expectations of their fellow citizens, the two mountaineers have defied the cold and wind of Noshaq in order to carry the national flag. This is a great message of hope for Afghanistan, conveyed by these two young Wakhis who consider themselves Afghans in the first place, above the ethnical and regional differences dividing their country.
We are now back in the valley, where we have been welcomed in a truly exceptional manner by the local population and authorities. We will soon be leaving to Kabul with Malang and Amrudin to continue and celebrate the event in the capital.
We thank you warmly for your inspirational messages of support and congratulation. We also thank our sponsors, wihtout whom this adventure would have never come through.
