The body of Muhammad Ali Sadpara has been found five months after he went missing along with two other mountaineers during a winter expedition of K2.

According to Alpine Club of Pakistan, the body of Ali Sadpra was found 300 metres from the so-called bottleneck at K2.

It further said that two bodies were found at camp four, 300 metres below the bottleneck on K2 one of which is confirmed to be of Ali Sadpara.

As per earlier reports, Sajid Sadpara and two other climbers had climbed as high as 7,800 metres on K2 in search of the three missing mountaineers from last winter expedition.

Earlier in February, Ali Sadpara had gone missing along with his two climbing partners – Iceland’s John Snorri and Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile. The trio were attempting to climb K2, the world’s second highest peak at 8,611 metres.

It had been reported that Sadpara and his team had successfully summited the 8,611-metre K2 in February but soon lost communication and went missing.

The Pakistan Army subsequently launched a number of search operations but owing to bad weather conditions could not make much headway.
