The son of Legendary Muhammad Ali Sadpara, Sajid Sadpara sets another record of climbing Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen or any support of high-altitude porter. Muhammad Ali Sadpara was also a first Pakistani to summit the 8,848 metre tall peak in Nepal.

Another Dubai-based Pakistani Naila Kiani also became the first ever Pakistani Woman to climb five eight-thousanders including Mount Everest. A British Pakistani woman Nadia Azad also summited the peak.
Three Pakistani Climbers on Mount Everest
The General Secretary of Alpine Club of Pakistan, Karar Haidri mentioned that three Pakistani climbers started their journey on May 13th and summited the World’s tallest peak on May 14, 2023.
He said in a statement, “Sajid Sadpara summited Mount Everest on Sunday without O2 and the support of Sherpa. Now on his way down to C4. What an incredible achievement for Pakistan”.
The type of journey that Sajid chose is known as Alpine Style. During such summit, mountaineers manage everything, carrying food, tent, ropes and setting routes themselves without any help.
Naila Kiani is also the first Pakistani woman to summit five peaks over 8000 m. The Dubai-based banker is also a boxer and mother of two daughters. She also did her wedding shoot at K2 base camp back in 2018.
Earlier, last month Sajid Sadpara also became first Pakistani to climb the World’s 10th highest peak without supplemental oxygen. In a tweet, Prime Minister Shahbaz Shareef congratulated Sajid Sadpara and Naila Kiani for proud achievements.
