13 Emirate members of the UAE Armed Forces have returned home after successfully climbing to the very top of Mount Everest (a whopping  the 8,848 metres) on May 19th. Once they reached the top, they planted the UAE flag to mark the 40th anniversary of the unification of UAE’s military forces.

The mission, which took two months in total is a clear example of the determination and skill of the UAE armed forces. Heroes.

“We were climbing for two months but it was five years of hard work and training, so it’s not easy to put it into words and to describe how I felt at the moment when we made it to the top,”

Abdul Aziz Thamini
