First woman to climb the 4 highest mountains in the world is a Mexican

Mexican pride! Viridiana Álvarez is an example that when you want something, it is important to work on it. It is under this premise that since she was a child, she began her taste and passion for sports, tennis, karate, swimming or soccer, were among the list of activities she practiced.

At age 20, he began to express his taste for athletics, so he decided to participate in races of 5 and 10 kilometers until he reached the Marathon, in Mexico City.

From this experience, he was followed by the mountain bike, which he also loved, where he met a group of scouts who climbed the Orizaba Peak and Iztaccihuatl.

As of 2014, her story began in mountaineering, when a group of friends invited her to ascend one of the highest mountains in Mexico, and after that, she no longer stopped.


  • Orizaba Peak, Mexico – 5,636 m – 2014
  • Aconcagua, Argentina – 6,962 m – 2015
  • Manaslu, Nepal – 8,156 m- 2015
  • Everest, Himalayas – 8,848 m – 2017
  • K2-, Pakistan, Kashmir, China – 8,611 m – 2018

It should be noted that thanks to his last expedition to  K2, the second-highest mountain in the world, after  Everest, and considered one of the deadliest in the world of mountaineering, because there is a risk in his descent, he became Viridiana Álvarez, the only Latin American woman to reach the top of this mountain.
