Sajid Sadapara, a Pakistani climber, made history by climbing Mount Annapurna, the world’s tenth-highest mountain, without the use of supplemental oxygen.
Sajid, on a mission to carry on his father, the late great mountaineer Ali Sadpara, aims to climb the highest heights with his head held high.
His most recent accomplishment was validated today, Saturday, when he became the first South Asian climber to scale an 8,091-meter peak without the use of oxygen. He finished the mission two years after his father and two other climbers died while attempting to climb K2 in the winter.
Sajid, who at the age of nineteen climbed the dangerous K2, was recently photographed at Annapurna, which is located in Nepal and is notorious for its tough climbing conditions, with some climbers losing their lives.
Chhang Dawa Sherpa posted a tweet congratulating Sajid for reaching the summit of Mount Annapurna without the need for supplemental oxygen.
Annapurna is located in north-central Nepal and is recognised for its sheer slopes, harsh weather conditions, and a variety of other difficulties that make it one of the most dangerous summits among the Eight-thousander Mountains.
Meanwhile, Sajid’s achievement demonstrates his exceptional climbing talents and sheer willpower to ascend some of the world’s most difficult summits without oxygen.
This daring climber’s late father was also noted for having accomplished great things. The Pakistani government declared Ali Sadpara, John Snorri, and Juan Pablo Mohr dead in early 2021. He was so titled because he was the climber who never returned.
