Gilgit Baltistan, 19 July, 2023 (GNP): In an extraordinary display of courage and determination, Pakistani mountaineer Sajid Sadpara, son of the legendary mountaineer Ali Sadpara, successfully summited Broad Peak, the world’s 12th-highest peak, on Wednesday.
Notably, Sajid scaled the 8051-metre peak without relying on supplementary oxygen or Sherpa support, making a single push from basecamp. With this achievement, he has now climbed all five eight-thousanders in Pakistan without the aid of any supplemental oxygen.
With the ultimate goal of conquering all 14 eight-thousanders without the aid of supplementary oxygen, Sajid Sadpara’s recent ascent of Broad Peak follows his successful climb of Nanga Parbat in June, where he also accomplished the remarkable feat of ascending without supplementary oxygen or Sherpas.
He has also summited K2 (8,611m), Gasherbrum-I (8,080m), and Gasherbrum-II (8,035m) in Pakistan, as well as Manaslu (8,163m) in Nepal, without supplemental oxygen.
Moreover, Sajid has also accomplished the incredible feat of scaling the world’s highest peak Mount Everest without the aid of supplemental oxygen or Sherpa support in May 2023.
Meanwhile, Pakistani mountaineer Naila Kiani embarked on her journey to summit Broad Peak and has already reached camp two at 6,100 meters, reported by the sources.
Upon summiting Broad Peak, she will become the first Pakistani woman to summit all five eight-thousanders in Pakistan.
Naila has also achieved extraordinary triumphs by climbing K2, Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum I, and Gasherbrum II, further showcasing her indomitable spirit.
As per the sources, Naila will reach the top of Broad Peak by the end of this month if the weather doesn’t become worse.
