The rescue operation to locate three climbers, including Pakistan’s Muhammad Ali Sadpara, who went missing while attempting to summit the world’s second-highest mountain, K2, still continued for the third day on Monday.
Operation to locate the missing mountaineers continued on Monday for a third straight day.
Sadpara, John Snorri from Iceland and JP Mohr from Chile have not been contacted since the three began their push for the K2 summit from camp 3 at midnight between Thursday and Friday, according to their team.
Nation awaits for any news from rescue operation team and prays for Ali.
Ali hails from a small village in Skardu, Gilgit-Baltistan. Lacking better training opportunities, he began his hobby of mountaineering as a porter and travelled with certified mountaineering teams but only went to the last base camp with their luggage and returned.
After that, he started his journey and climbed many famous peaks.
In 2019, he climbed the world’s fifth-highest peak at 8,485 meters in Nepal.
He is the first Pakistani mountaineer to have climbed seven mountain peaks above 8,000 meters in the world.
