AMMAN — HRH Prince Raad, the Chief Chamberlain, on Sunday presented the Jordanian flag to mountaineer Mostafa Salameh to raise on top of the highest summit in the Arctic.

Salameh, who successfully made it to the top of Everest, will head to the Arctic on Monday on a one-month trip, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.

The mountaineer became one of only 235 people in the world to scale the Seven Summits — the highest mountains on all seven continents — in November 2012 when he climbed to the top of Puncak Jaya in Indonesia.
