This is about the twin-born Indies, Tashi and Malik Nungshi who already climbed Mount Everest in the Himalayas, Mount Kilimanjaro, now the Aconcagua and they go for several more

The twins sisters Tashi Malik and Nungshi Malik achieved the goal they have imposed to themselves, reach the top of Aconcagua in Argentina.

When they arrived, the Malik girls unfurled the tricolor flag of India, like they did in Everest. “We are going to do a toast in the name of all the “girls” of India, who share a million dreams”, said the twins. “We hope we can have a positive impact, inspire and motivate every one of them”.

"We are 22 years old and want to continue to represent the 'girls' of India, and show that is constructed of steel from the inside," said the girls.

Besides they were the first twins ever climbed the Everest.

The Aconcagua is located entirely in Las Heras department in Mendoza Province- provincial nor east- in the west-center of Argentina. It is the southern end of the range of Penitents, which integrates the Front Range, also called "Eastern Mountain Range", a mountain range that runs parallel to the east of the main ridge or "cordillera Limit", which is a component of the Andes. It is within the Aconcagua Provincial Park.

The twins, who also conquered the Kilimanjaro mount, the highest peak of Africa, to 19,640 feet, in may 2012 they dedicated their mountaineering projects as a tribute to girls of India and to young women, who suffer violence, including violation, murders, infanticide and Gender selective abortions, everyday.

Already have organized other ventures that are looking for corporate or private sponsors to mount three other peaks, Mount Carstensz Pyramid (16,024 feet) in Indonesia (the highest mountain in Oceania), Mount McKinley in Alaska, USA (at 20,237 feet, the highest peak in North America), and Mount Vinson Massif in Antarctica (16,050 feet, the highest peak in the frozen continent).
