Sirbaz Khan became the first Pakistani to climb nine of the world’s 14 highest peaks on Friday. These peaks all stand more than 8,000 meters high. The mountain climber recently climbed the 8,167-metre-high Dhaulagiri in Nepal. The Alpine Club of Pakistan congratulated Khan on his accomplishments via their Twitter handle.
The 32-year-old Sirbaz Khan is originally from Aliabad. He started climbing professionally in 2016. He is the first Pakistani to summit Mount Lhotse in Nepal, at 8,516 meters, without using supplementary oxygen. Some of his other summits over 8,000m include K2, Nanga Parbat, Broad Peak, Manaslu, Anapurna, Everest Gasherbrum II, and now Dhaulagiri.
