ISLAMABAD – Pakistani mountaineer Mohammed Ali Sadpara scaled K2, world’s second highest peak, along with his son Sajid Sadpara and Iceland mountaineer John Snorry on Friday.
Sadpara waved Pakistan flag at the top of the savage mountain at 5pm local time. Sajid and his fathers have become first Pakistanis to scale K2 in winters.
Sadpara, his son, and their friend John Snorri had earlier planned to summit the mountain that had not been scaled in winter until a few weeks ago when a Nepalese team conquered the peak for the first time in winter. However, the expedition was postponed due to a bad weather.
