Arjan raised the Jordanian flag at 5.200m feet, with the slogan “From the land of history to the highest geology”, as a symbol of his journey from Jordan, which is home to ancient civilizations, and features the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea.

The journey required Arjan to undergo special training for several months on adapting to varying climates, low temperatures nearing – 20oC, and high altitudes – during the trek, he gained 9,094m of altitude.

The training also prepared his body to adapt to different levels of oxygen and varying pressures, which are considered the greatest challenges of such hikes.

Because art is very important to Arjan, he printed artistic designs to promote the Kingdom on his clothes and pack.

While at the summit, he also raised the logo of the Jordan Trail and the Jordan Tourism Board as an invitation to visit Jordan, as well as his family name, in appreciation of all who supported him.
