The Journey Of Singapore’s First Women’s Team To The Summit Of Mount Everest

In 2009, the Singapore Women’s Everest Team made history by being the first team of female climbers from Singapore to reach the summit of Mount Everest. At 8,850m, Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world, and less than 2% of the climbers who reached its summit, have been women.

The team presents a unique and inspiring success story about a group of 6 young women, united by a common love for the mountains, coming together in a 5-year journey that culminated with 2 spectacular days on the summit of Mount Everest.

    “It was an audacious idea that a team of women were going to climb Mount Everest. Yet they did.

    This book is a testament to their endurance and fortitude. All those who have trained for marathons and sporting events know the toll it takes.

    I could feel myself shuddering in sympathy as they outlined their training in preparing for the ultimate event.

    It’s truly ironic that the first test that every Singaporean out of the box idea must overcome is ” Where is the money?”

    It’s almost like if you can find the money then you are committed to doing what it takes.

    The book sounds like a treatise on how to navigate an obstacle course on the way to your goal.

    Unlike many accounts of adventure stories, it provides a realistic gritty feel of what it takes to overcome Herculean odds and triumph. A great metaphor for a journey into adventure or even a business startup.”

    I have just received the books with thanks. I unintentionally stumbled onto your team’s motivational story and book on the web a few months ago. I thought it has to be something interesting and I checked out the book at our local library. After browsing through the book I decided to get it.

    I have been inspired by the motivating stories of how your team candidly unfold the challenges overcome to successfully summit Mount Everest, which is a testament to the strength and beauty of the human spirit. This book blessed me with the courage to embrace and confront my own mountains and vulnerabilities. That it is alright with not reaching the summit for every attempt. That failure is success in progress!

    Applause to you SWET for putting this enchanting book together that are written from the heart, complemented by captivating photographs and illustrations. Definitely an inspirational book worth reading!

    Thank you, SWET!
