Welcome to FUN FACTS!

Did you know?

The oldest woman to climb Mount Everest is a Japanese!. Tamae Watanabe, 73, led her group last year 2012 in reaching the summit of the tallest mountain in the World. Watanabe lives at the foot of Mt. Fuji, which allows her to practice climbing as often as she could.

Breaking her own record,  Watanabe reached Mt. Everest for the 2nd time. In 2002 was her first successful attempt to hold the record.

Now she did it again!

Awesome! Totally just proves that sometimes, age doesn’t matter!
