Sajid Ali Sadpara, a Pakistani Mountaineer, made history on Monday when he became the first person from his country to reach the top of Mount Manaslu, the eighth-highest peak on Earth.
Sadpara’s crew was able to establish that he reached the summit of Manaslu before a sizable avalanche trapped him around C4 in the late afternoon.
When renowned Nepali climber MingmaG said that all previous summit efforts at the peak were not the genuine summit and that there was still a distance to traverse before reaching the mountain’s peak, the “true summit” of Manaslu was revealed.
Following Mingma’s admittance, a number of climbers, including Pakistan’s Sirbaz Ali and Shehroze Kashif, who were aiming to break many records, announced plans to re-climb Manaslu.
Sajid Ali Sadpara, the late Ali Sadpara’s son, was one among the climbers aiming to achieve a true summit this year.
According to his team, Sajid successfully scaled Mt. Manaslu (8,163 meters) on Monday afternoon without the usage of supplementary oxygen.
When the big avalanche struck the climbers on route C-4, forcing many other climbers to abandon their plans, Sajid had already reached 8,000 meters and was pushing on, according to Sajid’s expedition management business.
