Sajid Sadpara, a famous mountaineer from Pakistan, has achieved history by being the first person to summit Mount Everest without using oxygen tanks or the help of Sherpas.
On Sunday in Nepal, Sajid made history by becoming the first Pakistani to summit Mount Everest without using supplementary oxygen.
Since Sajid is the first Pakistani to summit Everest without using supplementary oxygen, his success has catapulted Pakistan onto the international climbing stage.
Sajid has made great progress toward summiting all 14 of the world’s highest mountains without supplemental oxygen. Without using oxygen tanks, he has reached the top of K2, Gasherbrum-I, and Gasherbrum-II in Pakistan and Manaslu in Nepal.
Mohammad Ali Sadpara, Sajid’s father, was a great mountaineer who always hoped his son would follow in his footsteps. After his father’s untimely death in February 2021, while attempting to climb K2, Sajid made good on his promise to climb the mountain.
Social media has been swamped with messages of congratulations and praise for Sajid after his success became known around the world. Sajid said that his success was a watershed moment for Pakistan.
Pakistani mountaineers have often shown themselves to be among the most skilful and brilliant in the world, and Sajid Sadpara’s astounding achievement is a monument to their grit and dedication.
Sajid has raised the standard for mountaineers everywhere, and his success will encourage a new generation of Pakistani climbers to test the limits of their sport.
Sajid, you have accomplished something quite remarkable; congratulations!
