What do you know about Pakistani high-altitude mountaineer?

Sajid Ali Sadpara, a climber from Pakistan, made history on Monday, 24th September 2022, when he became the first Pakistani alpinist to reach the true summit of Mount Manaslu,  located in Nepal.

According to Sadpara’s support team, he reached the peak of Manaslu; however, an avalanche that occurred in the afternoon buried him at C4, a treacherous route on the hike. Since the previous year, when a well-known Nepalese mountaineer by the name of Mingma G stated that all previous summits done at the peak were not the true summit and that there is still some distance remaining to the actual top of the mountain, the “real summit” of Manaslu has been the subject of much discussion and debate.

After Mingma’s revelation, several mountaineers, including Pakistan’s Sirbaz Ali and Shehroze Kashif, announced their intentions to re-climb Manaslu, each to break their record on the peak.

Sajid Sadpara, son of the late high-altitude climber Ali Sadpara, was among the few who had great hopes of reaching the real summit this year.

According to his support team, Sajid made it to the summit of Manaslu (elevation: 8163 meters) on Monday afternoon, and he did it without the assistance of oxygen tanks.

 Climbers on route C-4 were hit by a significant avalanche, which caused many of them to be forced to abandon their goals. However, according to the company that managed the excursion, Sajid had already climbed more than 8,000 meters and was continuing.
