Pakistani mountaineer Sirbaz Khan conquers Everest without supplemental oxygen

Mountaineer Sirbaz Khan achieved a remarkable milestone on Tuesday by successfully scaling the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, without the aid of supplementary oxygen.

It makes him only the second Pakistani to accomplish this, following in the footsteps of Sajid Sadpara.

Previously, Sirbaz Khan had submitted the 8,849-meter Everest with bottled oxygen, but today, at approximately 12:30 PST, he reached the summit without any supplemental support.

The climber from Hunza is also the first Pakistani to scale 11 peaks over 8,000 meters without using oxygen support, bringing his total to 13 eight-thousanders.

Among his conquests, only Annapurna and Kangchenjunga were summitted with the help of oxygen.

Earlier this year, Sirbaz’s plans to scale Shishapangma, his 14th and final eight-thousander, were postponed due to Chinese authorities closing the mountain for the climbing season.
