- Advertisment -

Pakistan’s star climber Muhammad Ali Sadpara declared dead on the world’s second-highest peak. Search for the missing mountaineers which includes Ali Sadpara, Iceland’s John Snorri Sigurjónsson, and Chile’s Juan Pablo Mohr Prieto, was officially called off on Thursday. Sajid Sadpara, son of Ali Sadpara, made the announcement.

The trio went missing on K2 on February 5 while attempting an unprecedented winter climb without extra oxygen.

“K2 has embraced my father forever,” Sajid said during the press conference. “To all the climbers who appreciate Ali Sadpara’s achievements and look up to him, I promise that I will carry on his dreams and missions and will continue to walk in his footsteps.” He added.

K2 is one of the deadliest peaks in the world. The mountain has been nicknamed “Killer Mountain” and “Savage Mountain”. More than 77 climbers have so far died while attempting to scale the 8,611 meters of the peak.

President of Pakistan expressed his condolences to Ali Sadpara’s family. “Condolences to the families & citizens, of Iceland’s John Snorri Sigurjónsson & Chile’s Juan Pablo Mohr Prieto.” Alvi said in a tweet.

Sadpara was Pakistan’s top climber, having the distinction of hoisting the Pakistan flag on eight high-altitude peaks.
