A three-person family expedition team, including a teenage girl, ascended the 6,400-meter Khusar Gang Peak in Gilgit-Shigar Baltistan’s region.
Amina Shigri, a fifteen-year-old female mountaineer, and her father, Sharafat Ali Khawaja, and brother, Ahmed Ali, began the journey on August 27 without any sponsors.
The family team hoisted the Pakistani flag atop the summit on Thursday, according to the Baltistan Tour Operators Association.
Ms. Amina is Shigar’s first female climber to reach the summit.
As per family reports, Ms. Amina and her brother had never trekked a mountain before in their life, but their father was an experienced climber who had summited several peaks in the past as a high-altitude porter.
Ms. Amina and her brother had received top instruction from their father.
After a triumphant climbing, the family returned to Shigar on Saturday to a warm greeting from the locals. The family was then driven to their hometown of Hyderabad in a parade.
Amina Shigri dedicated the achievement to national hero Mohammad Ali Sadpara.
She stated that she planned to hoist the Pakistani flag atop K2, the world’s second-highest mountain, in the near future.
