Sajid Sadpara, a celebrated mountaineer from Pakistan, has etched his name in history by successfully summiting Mount Everest without the use of supplementary oxygen or the support of Sherpas. This remarkable achievement makes him the first Pakistani to conquer the world’s highest peak without relying on oxygen tanks.
Prior to his Everest triumph, Sajid had already scaled several challenging peaks without supplementary oxygen, including K2, Gasherbrum-I, Gasherbrum-II in Pakistan, and Manaslu in Nepal. His ultimate goal is to ascend all fourteen eight-thousanders without the aid of supplemental oxygen.
This feat fulfills the aspiration of his late father, Mohammad Ali Sadpara, a renowned climber in his own right. In a tweet, Sajid expressed that it was his father’s ambition for Pakistan, and history has been made as the first Pakistani to reach the summit of Everest solo, without the use of supplemental oxygen or personal sherpa assistance.
