Guests Bios:

Sheikh Mohammad Al-Thani:
Sheikh Mohammed is amongst the few hundred climbers over the past 25 years to Summit the seven peaks. He is the first Qatari to reach the top of the world, summiting Mount Everest in May 2013. Through faith, perseverance, persistence and willpower, he pushed his limits and achieved what he thought was impossible. Along with his partners, Sheikh Mohammed established Musafir.com, the UAE's first premium-experience travel website.


Raha Moharak:
From a young age Raha dreamt of challenging adventures, seeing the world and perhaps even changing it. Blessed with parents who taught her to dream big and live even bigger, Raha’s life changed the day she summited Kilimanjaro and challenged herself, her society, and culture. Kilimanjaro opened the doors to my insatiable love affair with altitude. In May 2013 Raha made history by being the first Saudi woman to summit Everest and the seven peaks forever proving impossible is nothing no matter where you are from. She’s living proof that if children are raised confident and curious, they will be capable of anything, even for a Saudi woman to stand on top of the world.



Zed Al Refai:
Zed is a Kuwaiti mountain climber and the first Arab to Summit Mount Everest. Zed is also the 46th person to summit the seven peaks. He spent part of his childhood in Finland and attended university in the US. His holidays were spent trekking in New England, the Rockies, and the Pacific Northwest. In the mid-1990s he traveled to Nepal, where he was captivated by the Himalayas and Mount Everest. Zed is Director of the Arabian Mountaineering and Alpine Climbing Club, founded in an attempt to popularize mountain climbing among people in the Middle East.


Saeed Al Memari:
Saeed is the first Emirati to summit Mount Everest as well as the first Emirati to summit the seven peaks of the world. He was born in Fujairah, were he climbed the mountain behind his house every week. Unlike most climbers, Saeed’s first big mountain was Everest, where he said he felt right at home. Saeed is always on a quest to find a special and exclusive adventure.
