Shahrooz Kashif, a young Pakistani climber, plans to climb five more peaks above 8,000 meters this year.
Shahrooz Kashif, the youngest climber to climb the world’s 5 highest peaks, told Geo News that he will climb 3 more peaks above 8,000 meters in Pakistan next month. They will start their adventure on Nanga Parbat, the ninth highest peak in the world at 125 meters high.
Kashif said he would return to Nepal in September this year to climb the world’s sixth-highest peak, Chi Oyo, and the seventh-highest peak, Daulagiri. If Shahrooz succeeds in achieving all these targets, by the end of this year, he will have climbed 12 of the 14 peaks at 8,000 meters.
Shahrooz Kashif wants to be the youngest climber to climb all 14 peaks.
The Pakistani climber had climbed Kanchenjunga, Lotse and Makalu in Nepal last month and had previously climbed Mount Everest, K2, Manaslu and Broad Peak.
Shahrooz Kashif says that he wants to move towards his record but the absence of sponsors is hindering his progress.
He said that plans have been made to climb 5 more peaks this year but if the sponsorship could not be obtained in time, there could be obstacles in the way of record.
