The name on Pakistan’s lips today: Who exactly is Muhammad Ali Sadpara?
He started his career as a porter and worked his way up to climbing high peaks with expeditions.
A few days ago, the renowned Pakistani mountaineer, Muhammad Ali Sadpara, along with climbers from Iceland and Chile, went missing during their winter climb on K2.
The rescue operation was launched on Saturday to locate the three climbers. According to the latest updates, the rescue teams have still been unable to find the mountaineers.
Who is Muhammad Ali Sadpara
Muhammad Ali was born in Sadpara, a village at the periphery of Skardu city, on the 2nd of February 1976. He started his career as a porter and worked his way up to climbing high peaks with expeditions.
The mountaineer was part of the team which successfully achieved the first-ever winter summit on Nanga Parbat in 2016. Both his teammates, Alex Txicon and Simone Moro, have gone on record, stating that they could not have done it without Sadpara’s brilliance.
In January 2018, he teamed up with Alex Txikon, a Spanish mountaineer, and tried unsuccessfully to summit Mount Everest in winter without any supplemental oxygen.
Moreover, in June of 2018, he was enlisted by Marc Batard to undertake a five-year program known as “Beyond Mount Everest.” They planned to summit Nanga Parbat, K2, and Mount Everest in 2019, 2021, and 2022 respectively.
Sadpara has the distinction of proudly hoisting the Pakistani flag on eight high-altitude peaks.
We wish and pray for the safe return of the climbers.
