ISLAMABAD – Sajid Sadpara, the son of late legendary climber Ali Sadpara, became the first Pakistani to climb Nepal’s Manaslu Peak without using supplemental oxygen.

Pakistan’s experienced hiker reached the summit of the 8,163-meter mountain on Monday afternoon, achieving a dream that, for him, has been years in the making.

He added another feather to his cap by becoming the first Pakistani to scale the eighth highest peak located in the west-central part of Nepal.

The son of the late Pakistani iconic climber started the mission with foreign climbers on September 6. In a recent tweet on his official handle said, “Alhamdulliah, Sajid has summited Mt Manaslu 8,163m world’s 8th highest mountain without oxygen this afternoon and is first Pakistani to climb to the True Summit. Congratu­la­tions Pakistan.”

Sajid has earlier etched his name in history books by completing K2 (8,611m), Gasherbrum-II (8,035m), and Gasherbrum-II (8,035m) and other summits this year.
