Sajid Ali Sadpara, who went to conquer the K2 mountain for the second time to find his father, Ali Sadpara’s dead body, has released some new details.

In a video message shared on his official Twitter handle, Sajid Ali Sadpara said that it is quite difficult for his team members and him to bring down the dead bodies of Ali Sadpara and the other climber who went missing in February.

“The bodies of Mohammad Ali Sadpara and John Snorri were at a difficult place,” he said, adding that it was not possible for them to bring the bodies down.

He said that they were trying to shift the bodies near the route leading to the base camp.

Earlier on July 26, the body of Muhammad Ali Sadpara had 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 the dead mountaineer 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.

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 was 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 had subsequently launched a number of search operations but owing to bad weather conditions could not make much headway.

Who Was Muhammad Ali Sadpara?

Muhammad Ali Sadpara, known as the bravest climbing hero of Pakistan, 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, Ali Sadpara 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.
