Sajid Ali Sadpara, the son of famous mountaineer late Muhammad Ali Sadpara, has reached Nepal to summit some of the world’s highest mountains without supplemental oxygen.
He is going to climb Kangchenjunga (8,586 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) and Makalu (8,481m) peaks, reports Dawn.
They are the world’s third, seventh, and fifth-highest mountains, respectively. The climber said his mission will be completed in three months.
In an Instagram post Sadpara put up on Saturday, he shared that he is all set to summit Mountain Annapurna, 8091m high, considered to be among the deadliest of high peaks due to avalanche prone slopes and shifting ice.
At home, Sajid Ali Sadpara has twice climbed K2 — the world’s second-highest mountain — one time without supplemental oxygen. In 2022, he summited the Manaslu peak without supplemental oxygen, becoming the first Pakistani to achieve the feat.
Earlier this year, he announced the “K-2 Clean Up Campaign”, a voluntary cleanliness campaign that will start in June this year.
In February 2021, Sajid Sadpara survived an expedition in which his famous father, Iceland’s John Snorri and Chile’s Juan Pablo Mohr went missing while attempting to summit K2 during the winter season.
