Pakistani mountaineer makes history by summiting highest peak in Africa

Asad Ali Memon is the only Asian and Pakistani to summit the mountain in the record time.

Asad Ali Memon, a young Pakistani mountaineer, summited Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, in 14 hours, bringing honor to the nation.

Mount Kilimanjaro has a height of 5,895 meters. Asad Ali Memon climbed it in a very short time, while climbers take 5 to 7 days to reach the peak.

Asad Ali Memon is the only Asian and Pakistani to summit the mountain in the record time.

Announcing the achievement of the milestone, Memon took it to Twitter and shared his success.

Muhammad Saleem, Pakistan’s Ambassador to Tanzania, also congratulated Memon.

Earlier, Asad Ali Memon, a mountaineer from Larkana, said that due to lack of resources, he would not be able to break the record of climbing 19000 feet high Mount Kilimanjaro summited in 6 hours 24 minutes by Swiss mountaineer, Karl Egloff. However, he would be able to summit in in less than 24 hours and wave Pakistani flag on the peak.

Asad Ali finally met the target today (Feb 16).

Numerous Pakistanis have scaled various global mountains including Hassan Sadpara, the first Pakistani to have climbed eight-thousanders including Mount Everest, K2, Gasherbrum I, Gasherbrum II, Nanga Parbat, and Broad Peak. Names like Nazir Sabir who has climbed Mount Everest and four of the five 8000m peaks in Pakistan and Muhammad Ali Sadpara have also brought pride to the country.
