Courageous Pakistani Couple Makes History as First Husband-Wife Duo to Conquer Mount Manaslu

In an extraordinary display of courage and determination, Ahmed Uzair and Anum Uzair, a Pakistani couple, have made history by becoming the first husband-wife duo to successfully summit Mount Manaslu in Nepal. Seven Summit Treks, a renowned Nepalese adventure operator, confirmed this remarkable achievement. This couple is the first Pakistani husband-wife pair to achieve this feat.

Mount Manaslu, the eighth-highest mountain in the world, stands majestically at 8,163 meters and is located in the west-central region of Nepal. This formidable peak has been conquered by a few brave Pakistani mountaineers earlier this month, including Naila Kiani, Sirbaz Khan, and Shehroze Kashif.

However, Ahmed and Anum Uzair’s accomplishment is unique as they are passionate mountaineers and dedicated parents of two children. Their dream of conquering Mount Manaslu was realized on a day that will forever be etched in their memories.

Seven Summit Treks took to social media to announce their historic achievement. “Congratulations to Ahmed and Anum Uzair, who successfully climbed the eighth highest peak, Mt. Manaslu (8163m), this morning,” the company proclaimed with jubilation. “They are the first Pakistani couple to achieve this feat, ascending an 8,000-meter peak.”

Among those celebrating this extraordinary accomplishment was Shehroze Kashif, who expressed his admiration and joy on social media. “What a piece of news to wake up to! It’s truly an outstanding achievement,” he wrote.

Kashif, who has mentored the couple, expressed his confidence that this is just the beginning of their illustrious mountaineering journey. He envisions Ahmed and Anum Uzair setting their sights on even greater summits in the future.

“They will become the first Pakistani couple to summit all 14 eight-thousanders,” Kashif confidently declared, alluding to the elite group of peaks that exceed 8,000 meters in height. This ambitious goal, if achieved, would further solidify their place in the annals of mountaineering history.
