Mission Saipal: RMI Guide Hannah Smith Checks in from Kathmandu

Hello everyone from Nepal!

We have been in Kathmandu a handful of days now enjoying the food and culture as we get ready for our climb. The climb we are apart of is called Mission Saipal. Mission Saipal is an international climbing team composed of four different nationalities (Spanish, Italian, Nepalese, and American) coming together to climb in the far west region of Nepal.This area of Nepal is rarely visited by western tourist/climbers. Our mission out there is to join forces with four Nepali women who want to fight for women’s rights and emancipation in the Saipal region of Nepal by climbing a peak near their village. These women come from a culture that sees women as inferior, second class to the men. They have little respect and freedom to do what they please. They have yet to gain equal rights. Our purpose of this climb is a social one. We are climbing together to show everyone that women are strong, independent, and equal. They are courageously taking the steps to change the view of women, to a more positive one. We hope to be the catalyst for change to improve the way of life for these women and future women. We are all very excited for this opportunity to climb together. This is a journey we will all remember and hopefully be life changing. Tomorrow we kick of the adventure by taking a plane ride to Dhangadi followed by a four hour drive to Dadheldhura.

Namaste,
RMI Guide Hannah Smith
