Twin Sister Adventurers: Tashi & Nungshi Malik

By 23 years of age they had defied gender stereotypes reaching the world’s highest and farthest points – Mt Everest, the North Pole and the South Pole – becoming the first twins to climb Everest, as well as the Seven Summits.

In World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji, the sisters race alongside their father, who was a former Colonel in the Indian Army, in this non-stop, 11 day competition across hundreds of miles of rugged Fijian terrain complete with mountains, jungles and oceans.
