Pakistani mountaineer Muhammad Ali Sadpara has scaled world’s eighth highest mountain Manaslu.
He climbed the 8,163 meter high mountain in four days and waved Pakistani flag at the summit of the mountain.
The 43-year-old mountaineer has climbed eight of 14 eight-thousanders (8000+ meter) mountains. He is also the first Pakistani to summit Nanga Parbat in winter season. The other six eight-thousanders are K2, Makalu, Lhotse, Gasherbrum I, Gasherbrum II and Broad Peak.
In January 2018, Ali Sadpara teamed up with Alex Txikon, a Spanish mountaineer, to summit the Mount Everest in winter.
In June 2018 he has been enlisted by Marc Batard to undertake a five year program known as ‘Beyond Mount Everest’. They plan to summit Nanga Parbat, K2 and Mount Everest in 2019, 2021 and 2022 respectively.
