Samiya Rafiq, (born 17 January 1988) is a mountain climber. She is the first female who attempted the highest pass of the Karakoram range called Khurdopin Pass in winter 2016/2017. Born and raised in Saudi Arabia, she spent most of her childhood in outdoor activities such as cycling for miles, and hiking trails with her father. Samiya is also an entrepreneur and a social worker.

Samiya began her climbing activity in the Northern Pakistan, she quit her comfortable city life, and gave everything to the mountaineering; she embarked on a series of mountain adventures. In 2016 she attempted

to ascent an unclimbed peak (6200 meter/20,341 ft) in the vicinity of Khurodpin pass. She and Qudrat ali pushed on up through that pass, which is the pass highest in the Karakorum mountain range at 5790 meters (18,996 ft). The expedition began on December 24, 2016 and it wrapped up on January 6, 2017 so it is a brief but tough excursion into the mountains. For Samiya winter survival is staggeringly challenging and tough. She has explored her physical and mental capabilities that urge to explore inwardly, to understand who she is, where her limits lie and how she can live more and become more will never let her stop.

She is currently undertaking her latest expedition Climb4Peace a five years project.
