Young Pakistani climbs up highest peak outside Asia
Asad Memon ascends to 22, 783ft mountain peak Aconcagua in Argentina
He completed the entire journey to the peak in 20 days.
DEDICATED TO ARMY, KASHMIRIS
Asad Memon, an undergraduate student in Karachi, is originally from Larkana. According to a 24 News Tv report, Asad Memon dedicated his success to Pakistani Armed Forces and IHK Kashmiris, braving Indian brutalities.
According to Memon, there was no proper training or such facilities in Larkana. He attended a two-week training camp in Islamabad and that was how his journey as a mountain climber began.
SEVEN SUMMIT CHALLENGE
It was the second mountain as part of the ‘Seven Summit Challenge’ in which Asad will climb seven of the highest peaks in all seven continents of the world.
Earlier in August 2019, the young athlete climbed up 18,510 ft high Mount Elbrus, the highest peak in Europe, located in Southern Russia near Georgian border.
