GILGIT: Famed climber Sajid Ali Sadpara summi­ted the world’s eighth highest peak, Mount Mana­slu (8,163m) in Nepal, without supplementary oxygen on Monday afternoon, the exp­e­­dition’s organisers said.

Mr Sadpara had started the mission with foreign cli­mbers on September 6. He reached the summit as a part of “Mt Manaslu Expe­dition, 2022” organised by Seven Summit Treks, a Nep­alese adventure company.

A tweet posted on Mr Sadpara’s official account 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.”

Mr Sadpara, the son of late Muhammad Ali Sad­para, has already summited K2 (8,611m), Gasherbrum-II (8,035m) and Gasherbrum-II (8,035m) this year.
