World’s Youngest Pakistani climber ready to scale Nanga Parbat
ISLAMABAD: The youngest climber, Shahroze Kashif, has left Islamabad for Gilgit to climb Nanga Parbat.
Shahroze, 20, aims to wave the Pakistani flag on all the world’s highest peaks. Shahroze Kashif says that saying goodbye to his family every time is a very difficult step to go on an adventure and due to his obsession, he cannot celebrate Eid or other festivities with his family. He also faces financial problems due to lack of sponsorship.
Shahroze has so far scaled seven of the world’s highest peaks, including Mount Everest and K2. Holding two Guinness Book of World Records, he is the youngest climber in the world.
It should be noted that the 8,126-meter-high Nagana mountain is the ninth highest peak in the world.
