Skardu climber conquers Everest

GILGIT: Hassan Sadpara, who hails from Skardu which is home to the world’s second-highest peak K2, scaled the world’s highest peak on Thursday, becoming the second Pakistani to achieve the feat.

He made it without any oxygen supply, which makes his achievement even more courageous than that of Nazir Sabir, the first Pakistani who climbed the 29,028 ft (8,840 m) tall Mount Everest in 2000.
