“From the time when Pakistani mountaineers were denied the opportunity to assemble their mountains [mountains within Pakistan] to the point where Pakistani mountain climbers are leading the way in foreign lands, we have come a long way, ”he said It was morning.

“But our journey is far from over right now. In fact, we have just begun. We will continue to work to develop and promote the sport of mountaineering in Pakistan and in the years to come, we will have Pakistani mountaineers reaching the top everywhere in the world,” Munawar vowed.

Among the 8000ers, Kanchenjunga, part of the Himalayas, is said to be the hardest mountain to climb to the top from the last camp and lasts a long time because of the canyons and very cold weather.
