Sajid Sadpara becomes first Pakistani to climb Mount Manaslu’s true summit

Sajid Sadpara has become the first Pakistani to have summited Mount Manaslu’s true summit, without using supplementary oxygen.

Sajid Sadpara, son of renowned mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara, has summited the world’s eighth highest peak, Mount Manaslu without using any supplementary oxygen.

This has been the first ever ‘true summit’ of the world’s eighth highest 8,163 meters altitude peak by any Pakistani climber. The Mount Manaslu is located in the Mansiri Himal in Nepalese Himalayas. The word Manaslu means ‘mountain of the spirit’.

Sajid had announced the successful completion of his summit on his twitter account on the evening September 26.

In an earlier tweet, almost seven hours early, Sajid had stated that there had been an avalanche on Mount Manaslu below C-4. It had also said that Sajid was safe and fine and had already crossed 8,000 meters.

Meanwhile, US ski mountaineer Hilaree Nelson is missing on Mount Manaslu, while a Nepali climber was killed by an avalanche on Monday.

Sajid has already successfully summited world’s second highest peak K-2 (8,611m) twice, Gasherbrum-I (8,080m) and Gasherbrum-II (8,035m) without any additional oxygen.

In July, Sajid had retrieved the bodies of three missing climbers including his father, who went missing while attempting to summit K2 in February 2021. The bodies were spotted below Bottleneck by Sherpas.
