Support to Dolores underlines the commitment of The Sustainable City to support Arab youth 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 21 October 2018:   The Sustainable City (TSC), the Middle East’s first fully-operational sustainable community, today announced that its Brand Ambassador Dolores Al Shelleh has set another historic accomplishment as the first Arab to summit Mount Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world at 8,156 meters above the sea level, located in the Himalayas. 

The Sustainable City appointed Dolores, the first and youngest Jordanian set to climb the Mount Everest, as its Brand Ambassador to raise awareness on sustainable living.  With the company’s support, Shelleh ventured on the arduous task of scaling Mt. Manaslu, regarded as the fourth most dangerous for Climbers, due to the risk of avalanches. She scaled the peak in 40 days, braving biting cold and harsh conditions, with the temperature at the summit being a chilly -20-degree C. 

Dolores has earlier summitted the Mera Peak in Nepal at 6,476 metres; Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak at 5,895 metres above sea level; and Mt. Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, towering at 5,642 metres above sea level.  She was awarded the ‘Sports Leader of Year’ by His Highness Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan. 

Dolores expressed her happiness in scaling Mt. Manaslu, a task she said aimed at enhancing awareness of climate change and its impact on the environment. She said the climb was a challenge for her, which is part of her ongoing efforts to prepare herself mentally and physically to achieve her goal of summiting Mount Everest as the first and youngest Jordanian. She added that her role as its a Brand Ambassador for The Sustinaible City inspires her further to underline the message of sustainable living and its positive impact on nature.
