Abdul Joshi, from Hunza, climbed the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest, and put the Pakistani flag on top of the world on Monday. He did this in Karachi.
Joshi, who is 38 years old, started his final summit from Camp 4 last night around 9 p.m. PKT and got to the top around 5 a.m. PKT on Sunday.
Joshi’s Facebook page confirmed that the meeting would happen.
“Alhamdulillah! One more win for Pakistan! Abdul Joshi has reached the top of Mount Everest, which is the highest point on Earth. “May Allah is praised for all of His greatness,” said the post.
Joshi was on the team led by Mingma G. and was known as a “pathfinder” among mountain climbers because he was so skilled.
The trip started on April 22 and ended on May 15, when they reached Camp 4.
He is the eighth person from Pakistan to reach the top of Mount Everest. The highest peak in the world has also been reached by Nazir Sabir, Abdul Jabbar Bhatti, Hassan Sadpara, Mirza Ali Baig, Samina Baig, Shehroze Kashif, and Sirbaz Ali Khan.
Joshi and Sirbaz Khan reached the top of Annapurna peak, which is 8,091 meters high, in April of last year. His first peak was the 6,050-meter Manglik Sar. When he led a group to the top of Passu Cones in Gilgit for the first time, he got everyone’s attention.
Mountaineers say that Joshi is one of the best climbers in the country, but he spends most of his time climbing peaks that haven’t been climbed before and finding ways to get to the top.
Joshi will probably go back to base camp on May 18.
