Shehroze Kashif – K2 Updates

Fresh from scaling Everest just 2 months ago, young Pakistani climber Shehroze Kashif made a late decision to climb K2 this summer.

We followed him with these updates:

4th August

“I thank Allah Almighty on the summit of K2 8611m, I felt I was actually in Heaven and the Creator was closest ever to me! Just He and I, His Magnificence and my sajda !!!

“Now it all feels like a dream, but of course a vivid dream.

“While I can share the outward experience of summiting the second tallest mountain in the world, it is not possible to express things I felt inside. Only Allah knows those subtle feelings, uncertainties, fears and overpowering joys.

“Facing the violent and mysterious nature, all that roughness, and being on the edge all throughout is something you cannot really define in words.

“Now that I am back, all I realize is that though it was me on the out front, it was Allah alone behind the curtain.

“On 27 July 2021 at 8:10 a.m., I made 2 unique World Records by becoming:

“1- Youngest Mountaineer in the world to summit K2
2- Youngest and only teenager Mountaineer in the world to summit world’s top two tallest mountains Everest 8849m and K2 8611m in same year within 3 months.”

28th July

“My Beloved Pakistan, Thank You for climbing and summiting King of the Mountains – K2 with me.”

“Here is a moment of pride for Us. All the records are for Our Green Flag. Its Pakistan that gets international recognition and thats the purpose of my life to bring more respect and honour to my beloved motherland.”

“Here is our Green Flag in my hands and it’s for you all!”

“Alhamdulillah! All praise is due to Allah Almighty.”

“This is for my family, specially my father. We both trusted Allah Almighty and He helped us to make it possible and today I realized my ultimate dream.”

“A special thanks to all sponsors and partners who supported in every way to make this expedition a reality. I will In Sha Allah tell the story of all collaborations separately.”

“This is for my friends, my people, my social media family. I cant thank you all enough for the love, prayers and support I received”.

“This is for all those who helped me, inspired me and guided me on my way from Makra to Broad Peak to Everest to K2.”

7th July

“All Geared up to Raise the Green Flag in the Heart of Karakorum
My dream to scale a challenging mountain is now just a few steps away…
I will be leaving in few days to make my country proud by raising the green flag on K2, the 2nd highest mountain in the world Inshallah!
Though it’s a sudden plan but yes once you start living your life at the mountains you can’t enjoy or live the city life anymore.
I’m bursting with excitement, energy and above all impatience…
Mountaineering is something I have been doing for years now but this expedition is one of its kind. All mountaineers know it’s not a piece of cake to summit the 2nd highest mountain in the world no matter how experienced you are.
It has been around 2 years of hard work that I have put before setting my foot on Mount Everest and just after a month and half I will be challenging my limits once again on K2
Every time the alarming wind touches my face it reminds me of all the dangers that await ahead.
But as soon as I imagine Pakistan’s flag in my hand which I plan to hold on the highest point in Pakistan, all my fears disappear.
All for the Green Flag/Pakistan Be Ready
As the distance between me and the highest mountain in the Pakistan will start decreasing in coming days, I would like to tell all back in Pakistan to be prepared to feel proud soon inshallah.
I can imagine when I would place the green flag on the mountain, how me and all Pakistanis would get adrenaline rushes.
Can hardly wait for that moment…
Tears of joy and excitement continue to fill my eyes as I visualize it all…”

We will enjoy watching the journey…
