In a groundbreaking achievement, Lahore’s Ahmed Uzair and Anum Uzair have earned the distinction of being the first Pakistani couple to scale Mount Manaslu, the world’s eighth tallest mountain, standing at 8,163 meters, located in Nepal.
With the support of three Sherpas, the duo reached the summit on a memorable Sunday, a feat acknowledged by the expedition organizers, Seven Summit Treks.
Seven Summit Treks took to social networking platform X to laud the couple’s accomplishment, stating, “Ahmed and Anum Uzair have successfully marked their presence on Mt. Manaslu, becoming the pioneering Pakistani couple to ascend an 8,000-meter peak.”
Renowned Pakistani mountaineer Shehroze Kashif, who had recently summited Manaslu, congratulated the couple through a post on X. He exclaimed, “This incredible success highlights their profound passion and unwavering commitment to embracing challenges!”
Earlier that week, mountaineers Naila Kiani and Sirbaz Khan celebrated their ascent of the Manaslu peak.
