Pakistan is facing many issues as an underdeveloped country. We are known for our hard work and resilience. The young generation has seen the political and economic turmoil but has it affected the young talent. Certainly not!!! They have talent, ambitions, skills, and abilities to strive for the best as the reins are in their hands now. Our Young Mountaineers Shehroze Kashif and Sirbaz Khan are making records by conquering the highest peaks.
The son of Mountain Ali Sadpara has left such a strong legacy that we see young mountaineers conquering the mighty mountains. Just saying is not enough, he did that and became part of the mountains he loved. May he rest in peace.
Shehroze Kashif became the World’s youngest and First Pakistani to conquer the 8586 meters high Kanchenjunga in Nepal. He is also the youngest mountaineer to conquer the three highest peaks, Everest, K2, and Kanchenjunga.

Where Shehroze has conquered the three highest peaks, Sirbaz Khan has surpassed him. He has the honor of climbing 10 peaks out of the 14 highest peaks, which were over 8,000 meters. According to the Alpine Club of Pakistan, the latest climb included the 8,586-meter-high Kanchenjunga mountain in Nepal. He was part of the team led by Nepalese mountaineer Mingma Gyalje Sherpa (Mingma G) of Imagine Nepal. He climbed it on Sunday in the early hours raising Pakistan’s flag. He thanked the nation for supporting him.
