Sirbaz Khan and Pakistan Team – Gasherbrum updates

Following his successful Everest climb in May, Sirbaz Khan has switched his sights to the Gasherbrums and has a team of fellow Pakistani climbers with him.

Along with Sirbaz, Ali Raza Sadpara, and three young climbers Naila Kiani , Fatima Gul and Sohail Sakhi will be attempting Gasherbrum 2, possibly followed by Gasherbrum 1.

An interesting expedition that we will follow here with this diary…

July 27th

“Alhamdulilah! Successfully led the first “all Pakistani” expedition to G-II. A proud moment for the whole nation!

“It was an honour to have led the first Pakistani woman (@naila._.kiani ) to summit an 8000er in the Karakoram region. The first 8000er for the young protege Sohail Sakhi for his first attempt and summit.
And last but not the least, the mountaineering veteran of the Pakistan mountaineering community Apo Raza Ali Sadpara for his unconditional support and motivation throughout the climb.”

“It is time to prepare for the next big challenge. I shall attempt 2×8000m peaks: G1 and G2, in the month of July. If successful, with your support and prayers, these will be my 8th and 9th 8000m summits. InshaALLAH!”
