Pakistan’s youngest mountaineer, Shehroze Kashif, 19, achieved another major achievement when he reached the summit of Manaslu, the world’s eighth highest peak on Saturday morning.
Earlier, Shehroze has made history by scaling Mount Everest, K2, and other high mountains at such a young age.
Shehroze scaled Manaslu, also known as Kutang, which is the 8,163 metres above the sea level. He has also become the world’s youngest mountaineer to summit three peaks of above 8,000 metres in just five months.
Talking to journalists, his father Kashif Suliman confirmed that Shehroze has scaled Manaslu.
He said that Kashif was fully fit and will return to the base camp in a couple of days.
Meanwhile, Punjab Sports Minister Rai Taimoor Khan congratulated Shehroze for scaling Manaslu and making the nation proud.
“Shehroze has made an unprecedented example of bravery at such a young age,” said the minister.
On July 27, Shehroze had become the youngest Pakistani to reach the summit of K2.
