Pakistani mountaineers Sirbaz Ali & Shehroze Kashif top world’s 5th-highest peak
Saturday morning, two Pakistani mountaineers, Sirbaz Ali and Shehroze Kashif reached the summit of Mt. Makalu in Nepal, the fifth-highest mountain in the world. After beginning the final push for the summit on Friday night, they reached the peak at approximately 7:00 am PKT on Saturday morning. Shehroze Kashif is the youngest climber in the world to have scaled the five highest mountains. Moreover, he is the third Pakistani to reach the summit of seven of the fourteen eight-thousanders.
Karar Haideri, secretary of the Alpine Club of Pakistan, reported, “Today, May 28, 2022, at 6:56 a.m. PST, Shehroze Kashif reached the summit of Makalu 8463m, the fifth-highest mountain in the world.” Sirbaz Ali Khan, who is 33 years old, was another mountain climber from Pakistan to reach the summit of Makalu. He is the first Pakistani to summit 11 of the world’s 14 summits that are higher than 8,000m. Sirbaz arrived at the summit around 7:00 a.m. PKT, according to Saad Munawar, who was in charge of his ascent. He also stated that the summit would be dedicated to “Appo Ali,” the deceased climber Ali Raza Sadpara, who passed away yesterday due to an injury. He further stated that Sirbaz reached the summit of Makalu without the use of supplemental oxygen.
