Sadpara scales Nanga Parbat without oxygen

Renowned Pakistani Mountaineer Sajid Sadpara has successfully climbed Nanga Parbat without oxygen.

In a tweet, Sajid Sadpara said he triumphantly summited Nanga Parbat 8126 meter without oxygen and as a part of lead rope fixing team.

This is first summit of the season in Pakistan while the young mountaineer has so far scaled six highest peaks without artificial oxygen.

In May, Sajid made history as he scaled the world’s highest peak Mount Everest without the support of supplemental oxygen and assistance from Sherpas, who are considered elite mountain climbers from Nepal.

The young climber became the first Pakistani to climb the world’s highest peak without the aid of supplemental oxygen, fulfilling the wish of his late father Mohammad Ali Sadpara.

It must be noted that Sajid, son of the legendary mountaineer Ali Sadpara, aims to climb all 14 eight-thousanders without the aid of supplemental oxygen. He has already 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.

Submitting the highest mountain without oxygen wasn’t the only feat that the alpinist has achieved, as last year in September, Sajid became the first Pakistani to achieve the true summit of Mount Manaslu — the world’s 8th highest peak.
