Shehroze Kashif, a climber from Pakistan, has accomplished something extraordinary. He ascended to the highest point of Mount Manaslu, the eighth-tallest mountain in the world at 8,163 meters.
The fact that Shehroze is only 21 years old and hails from Lahore makes this achievement even more remarkable. On a Wednesday, he scaled Mount Manaslu’s peak at 5:01 a.m. PKT. His father, Kashif Salman, validated this accomplishment.
Shehroze is now the youngest Pakistani to ever climb Mount Manaslu’s “true summit” thanks to this incredible achievement.
He has climbed Mount Manaslu before; it is a mountain in the Nepalese Himalayas. He ascended it in September 2021, although by that point, he had already reached what was thought to be the top. They later discovered that the “true summit,” which they had mistaken for the summit, was actually a bit higher.
Shehroze was resolved to return and reach the genuine peak despite receiving recognition from Nepalese climbing officials for his initial ascent, which he did on his most recent expedition.
