ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Sirbaz Khan, a 32-year-old Pakistani climber, has become the first and only Pakistani to reach 10 of the world’s fourteen highest peaks.
Khan put another feather to his cap by summiting Kanchenjunga, the world’s third highest mountain, which is located in the eastern Himalayas on the Nepal border. On Friday, he arrived to the mountain’s camp-IV.
Khan has already scaled nine peaks above 8000 metres, including Mount Everest, Nanga Parbat, K2, and others.
Khan scaled Nepal’s Dhaulagiri mountain last year, reaching the ninth summit. The young climber also earned the title of becoming the first Pakistani to summit Dhaulagiri.
He became the first Pakistani to climb Nepal’s 8,516m, the world’s fourth-highest peak, without using supplemental oxygen, in 2019.
Sirbaz Khan has been congratulated on his newest achievement by social media users.
