Sirbaz scales Everest without oxygen support

Esteemed climber Sirbaz Khan achieved a remarkable milestone on Tuesday by ascending to the summit of Mount Everest, the globe’s highest mountain, without the aid of supplemental oxygen, becoming the second Pakistani to accomplish such a feat.

Khan, who had previously reached Everest’s 8,849-meter summit with the help of oxygen tanks, successfully completed the climb at approximately 12:30 PM. His triumph follows in the footsteps of Sajid Sidpara, the pioneer in climbing Everest without external oxygen support.

Sirbaz participated in the “Imagine Nepal 2024 Everest Expedition,” alongside a team of 14 international mountaineers and 18 Sherpas, per coverage from Radio Pakistan.

Two decades earlier, when Sirbaz Khan began his mountaineering journey as a cook for a modest expedition, he never envisioned that by 2023, he would be Pakistan’s premier mountaineer, having ascended 13 of the world’s 14 highest peaks that tower over 8,000 meters (26,240 feet).
