The youngest Mount Everest climber of Pakistan, Shehroz Kashif, has dedicated his achievement to the nation as an Eid-gift, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel on Friday.

In his first-ever interview after climbing the topmost peak in the world in Kathmandu, Nepal, he said he did not climb Mount Everest alone but all the Pakistanis as well.

The 19-year-old Shehroz, who belongs to Lahore, said that he had been proud to start his journey from Lahore and to wave the green flag of Pakistan on the top peak of Mount Everest.

Giving the credit of his success to his father, he said that his father always encouraged him and advised that after success, all the nation would stand behind him, and now, it becomes true.

He said informed that before Mount Everest, he had already climbed the Broad Peak, the world’s 12th highest mountain with 8,000-metre height.

Deep heartedly missing delicious Eid Day food dishes in Lahore, he said there was very cold in Kathmandu and he would feel normal after returning to his hometown.

The youngest Pakistani mount climber also informed that he was expecting to arrive in Pakistan within the next two weeks after the flight operation starts.

Pakistan’s pride Shehroz Kashif emerges as the youngest individual to set a world record of conquering Mount Everest at the height of 8,848 meters. 19-year-old Shehroz is considered to be the youngest Pakistani to conquer Earth’s highest mountain.  

Mount Everest is Earth's highest mountain and it is situated in the Mahalangur Himal sub-range of the Himalayas. The China-Nepal border runs across its summit point which sums up to 8,848 meters.
