- 26, June , 2023
Newstoday: Sajid Sadpara, a Pakistani mountaineer, has successfully climbed Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth-highest peak, without the use of oxygen. Sadpara reached the summit of the 8,126-meter peak with mountaineers from Russia, Nepal, and Turkey as part of a lead rope repair team. Sadpara personally publicised the achievement on Twitter. Seven Summit Treks, a Nepal-based official mountaineering business, has verified the story on social media, stating the successful summit of a team of 20 foreign climbers, including prominent names like Kristin Harila, Sherpa Tenjen, and Mingtemba.
The summit of Nanga Parbat was a key milestone for Harila and Tenjen as part of their Fastest 14 Peaks quest, since it was their 10th ascent of an 8,000-meter mountain. In addition, Sophie Lavaud and Tunc Findik scaled Nanga Parbat to finish their adventure of conquering all 14 summits over 8,000 metres. Sajid Sadpara, who rose to prominence by summiting K2 at the age of 19, has now climbed six summits without the need of supplementary oxygen. In April of this year, he created history by climbing Mount Annapurna, the world's tenth-highest mountain, without the use of oxygen.
