Famous Pakistani mountaineer Sajid Ali Sadpara created history by scaling Manaslu Peak in Nepal without oxygen cylinder, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

By scaling the eighth highest peak in the world, not only has Sajid Sadpara added another badge to his shoulders, but he has also brought laurels to Pakistan.

It is to be noted here that Manaslu Peak is 8,163 meters high. Sajid Sadpara is the first Pakistani to scale the summit.

Earlier in 2021, Sajid Sadpara scaled K2 for the second time along with his teammates – Canadian filmmaker Elia Saikaly and Nepal’s Pasang Kaji Sherpa.

Sadpara’s team confirmed that he reached atop Manaslu before a huge avalanche had the climber stuck around C4 in the afternoon on Monday.

Manaslu’s ‘true summit’ became the centre of attention when last year renowned Nepali climber Mingma G claimed that all previous summits done at the peak were not the actual summit and there’s still distance left from the actual top of the mountain.

Following Mingma’s revelation, several climbers aiming for different records had announced to re-summit Manaslu including Pakistan’s Sirbaz Ali and Shehroze Kashif.

Sajid, son of late high-altitude mountaineer Ali Sadpara, was among the climbers who were aiming to complete the true summit this season.

His team confirmed that Sajid successfully summited Mt Manaslu 8163m on Monday afternoon without the use of supplemental oxygen.
