Sirbaz Khan becomes the first Pakistani to climb 10 of the world’s highest peak
Sirbaz Khan has become the first Pakistani mountaineer to climb the world’s 10 highest peaks out of 14 while he has planned to climb the Makalu peak this month.
Sirbaz Khan has recently climbed the third highest peak in the world, Kanchenjunga, after which he has got the honor of climbing the 10 highest peaks.
Sirbaz Khan has also planned to head to Makalu Peak this month, followed by Gasherbrum, Chiwawa and Shishapangma later this year.
The 32-year-old soldier hails from the Hunza area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and is the first Pakistani to climb 10 of the world’s 8,000-meter high peaks.
He is determined to climb all 14 of the highest peaks, having started the expedition by climbing Nanga Parbat in 2007, followed by K2 in 2018.
In addition, Sirbaz Khan has topped Broadpeak, Lhotse and Manaslu peaks in 2019, while in 2021 he also topped Annapuma, Mount Everest, Gesherbrum II and Dhaulagiri.
Notably, Sirbaz Khan climbed the world’s fourth highest peak in 2019 without any artificial oxygen supply while he is the first Pakistani climber to do so.
