The son of legendary mountaineer late Mohammad Ali Sadpara, Sajid Sadpara, and Naila Kiani have created history at Mount Everest.

First, Naila Kiani became the first Pakistani woman climber to summit five peaks of over 8,000m height when she successfully scaled Mt Everest (8848m), the world’s tallest mountain, on Monday.

Secretary Alpine Club of Pakistan, Karrar Haidri confirmed the development saying: “She reached the summit point at 8:02 am.”

She has already summited Gasherbrum-II (8,035m) in 2021, Gasherbrum-I (8,068m), K2 (8611) in July 2022, and Annapurna (8,091m) in 2023.

Meanwhile, Sadpara made history as he scaled the world’s highest peak Mount Everest without the support of supplemental oxygen and assistance from Sherpas.

He is the first Pakistani to climb the world’s high peak without the aid of supplemental oxygen.

Sajid aims to climb all 14 eight-thousanders without the aid of supplemental oxygen. He has already summited K2 (8,611m), Gasherbrum-I (8,080m), and Gasherbrum-II (8,035m) in Pakistan, as well as Manaslu (8,163m) in Nepal, without supplemental oxygen.
