Story

Mountaineer
Introduction
Tashi Malik is one half of the world’s first twin-duo to scale Mount Everest. She achieved this feat with sister Nungshi, on May 19th 2013. She considers herself truly Indian, having studied in over ten schools and lived in far-flung corners of the country while her father served in the army. Tashi was born on June 21, 1991.  Through school Tashi excelled in hockey, track and field events, table-tennis, basketball and badminton. She also performed spectacularly in academics. She got her Bachelors in Journalism degree through Sikkim Manipal University’s distance learning programme. During graduation Tashi’s father, Col VS Malik, signed her up at the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, Uttarkashi. This is where she was inspired to take-up mountaineering professionally.  At the moment Tashi hopes to set a record by climbing the seven major summits of the world with her sister. Five of these remain, after her successful Mt. Everest and Mt. Kilimanjaro bids. Since encountering Pakistan’s first woman climber to the Everest, Samina Baig, and summiting with her, Tashi has become serious about working towards gender equality causes, and bilateral peace.  Tashi has the humanitarian qualifications to back-up this ambition. While studying journalism, she was sent to Vermont, USA, for a short ‘Conflict Transformation Across Cultures’ (CONTACT) programme.  In 2011 she attended a workshop on volunteerism, the ‘South Asia Peace Workshop’, a CONTACT SAARC Course in Sri Lanka, and another Certificate Programme in Peace-building in Rwanda.  Tashi moved to Dehradun, with her family, to be closer to the major sites for mountaineering. Her lineage is mixed with her mother’s Gorkha, and father’s Haryanvi Jat, roots. She’s technologically proficient, and takes care of all social networking commitments on behalf of the twins. She enjoys the sights and sounds of picturesque Doon valley, and loves taking scenic drives with her sister Nungshi.
