Sarbaz also holds the record of being the first Pakistani to have reached Dhaulagiri mountain’s top. 

He had begun his career by climbing the Nanga Parbat, which is considered to be one of the most hostile mountains in the world.

Prior to scaling Dhaulagiri, Sarbaz had reached the summits of K-2, Broad Peak, Lotse, Mount Everest and other mountains. 

There are 14 mountains in the world whose height is 8, 000 meters and above.
