Passionate Mountaineer (6 World Record's)
Introduction

Hello Everyone, I’m Tashi Malik and I’m one half of the world’s first twin-duo to scale Mount Everest. I achieved this feat with my twin sister Nungshi, on May 19th 2013. I consider myself truly Indian, having studied in over ten schools and lived in far-flung corners of the country while our father served in the army. Through school I excelled in hockey, track and field events, table-tennis, basketball and badminton. I also performed spectacularly in academics. I got my Bachelors in Journalism degree through Sikkim Manipal University’s distance learning programme with distinction (A+). Soon after 12th our father, Col VS Malik, signed us up at the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, Uttarkashi. This is where I was inspired to take-up mountaineering professionally. Me along with my twin are currently on #Mission2for7, to scale the tallest peaks of the 7 continents. Having scaled our 6th peak in North America on 4th June, 2014, we have one more remaining, Mt. Vinson Massif (Antarctica). Since encountering Pakistan’s first woman climber to the Everest, Samina Baig, and summiting with her, I’ve become serious about working towards gender equality causes, and bilateral peace, having the humanitarian qualifications to back-up this ambition. While studying journalism, I went to Vermont, USA, for a short ‘Conflict Transformation Across Cultures’ (CONTACT) programme. In 2011 I 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. I moved to Dehradun, with my family, to be closer to the major sites for mountaineering. My lineage is mixed with her mother’s Gorkha, and father’s Haryanvi Jat, roots. I’m technologically proficient, and take care of all social networking commitments on behalf of the twins. I enjoy the sights and sounds of picturesque Doon valley, and love taking scenic drives with my sister Nungshi.
