Sirbaz Khan Makes History: Conquers Mount Everest Without Supplementary Oxygen


Pakistan’s renowned mountaineer Sirbaz Khan achieved another remarkable milestone on Tuesday by successfully summiting Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, without using supplementary oxygen.

Sirbaz had previously reached the 8,849-meter summit using bottled oxygen. His recent ascent, completed at approximately 12:30 PM PST, makes him the second Pakistani to conquer Everest without oxygen support, following in the footsteps of Sajid Sidpara.

Hailing from Hunza, Sirbaz is also the first Pakistani to climb 11 peaks over 8,000 meters without supplementary oxygen. In total, he has ascended 13 eight-thousanders. Among these, only Annapurna and Kangchenjunga were climbed with oxygen support. This achievement underscores Sirbaz’s exceptional mountaineering skills and his commitment to pushing the limits of high-altitude climbing.

Earlier this year, Sirbaz had intended to summit Shishapangma, his 14th and final eight-thousander. However, he had to postpone his plans when Chinese authorities decided not to open the mountain for climbing this season. This temporary setback did not deter Sirbaz from pursuing his ambitious goals.

Sirbaz Khan’s journey is not just a personal triumph but also a source of immense pride for Pakistan. His achievements bring global recognition to Pakistan’s mountaineering community and inspire a new generation of climbers. Sirbaz’s dedication, resilience, and skill have firmly established him as a leading figure in the world of high-altitude mountaineering.

As Sirbaz continues to break barriers and set new records, his legacy grows, paving the way for future adventurers. His remarkable feats on the world’s highest peaks demonstrate the power of perseverance and the human spirit’s capacity to overcome extraordinary challenges. Sirbaz Khan’s contributions to mountaineering will be remembered and celebrated for years to come.
