On Saturday morning, Pakistani mountaineers Sirbaz Ali and Shehroze Kashif made history by summiting Mt Makalu in Nepal, the world’s fifth-highest peak. After initiating the final summit push on Friday evening, they reached the summit top around 7:00 a.m. PKT.

Shehroze Kashif has become the world’s youngest mountaineer to summit the top five summits, as well as the third Pakistani to summit seven of the world’s fourteen eight-thousanders.

On Saturday morning, Shehroze sent two short messages via satellite communication from the top, “top” and “project done,” announcing the unprecedented success of his mission to Nepal. He had already climbed Kanchenjunga and Lhotse, making him the first Pakistani to summit three consecutive 8-thousands in just 23 days.

The 20-year-old mountaineer known as “wide boy” has previously climbed Mount Everest, K2, Manaslu, and Broad Peak.

“Today 28 May 2022 at 6:56 a.m. PST, Shehroze Kashif has summited Makalu 8463m – the world’s fifth highest mountain,” Karar Haideri, secretary of the Alpine Club of Pakistan, confirmed Shehroze’s summit. Sirbaz Ali Khan, 33, was another Pakistani mountaineer to reach the summit of Makalu, making him the first Pakistani to summit 11 of the world’s 14 summits above 8,000 meters.

Sirbaz reached the summit around 7:00 a.m. PKT, according to his summit manager, Saad Munawar. He also said that the summit will be dedicated to “Appo Ali,” mountaineer Ali Raza Sadpara, who died yesterday as a result of his wounds. Sirbaz summited Makalu without the need for supplemental oxygen, according to him.
