May 21, 2024

Pakistan's ace mountaineer Sirbaz Ali added another feather to his cap today when he successfully scaled the world's highest mountain, the Everest, without using supplementary oxygen.

Sirbaz, who had previously summitted the 8,849m peak using bottled oxygen, reached the top earlier today at around half past twelve to become second Pakistani to scale Everest without using oxygen.

Sajid Sidpara was the first one to achieve the unique feat.

Sirbaz was part of the "Imagine Nepal 2024 Everest Expedition" team, which included fourteen international climbers and eighteen Sherpas.
