Bodies of Ali Sadpara and Two Others Found on K2

The body of missing climber Ali Sadpara was found, along with two others. Let us take a look back at some of Ali Sadpara's achievements.

Pakistani mountaineer Ali Sadpara along with two other climbers, John Snorri and Juan Pablo Mohr, were declared missing on 5th February. This happened when they had attempted to scale the second highest mountain in the world, K2.

However, on 26th July, the Information Minister of Gilgit Balistan, Fateh Ulla Khan, stated that their bodies had been found. He also mentioned that it was difficult to bring their bodies down from the mountain from such a high altitude.

His son, Ali Sadpara, had previously launched an expedition to find the bodies of his father and the two Iceland climbers. He was guided by Pasand Kaji Sherpa and a Canadian filmmaker by the name of Elia Saikaly. They had used a drone to fly above the bottleneck of K2, that is where they found the bodies.

Mohr’s mother and sister requested that his body be brought back to Chile, while Snorri’s body will be shifted back to Iceland to respect the wishes of his wife, Lina. Ali Sadpara’s son already reached Camp 4 at the K2 route and he will be accompanied by a rope-fixing team who will retrieve his fathers body today.

Ali Sadpara is known as the hero of this nation. Climbing mountains was his life, he was a brave man with a lot of passion within him. He will forever be remembered as a dedicated high-altitude mountaineer by the International Community of Mountaineers.

Muhammad Ali Sadpara was from Sadpara, which was a small village at the Himalayan Balistan region. His father was a low-grade government employee, which made their living quite difficult. Once financial constraints hit, Ali Sadpara decided to start climbing and become a mountaineer around the time of 2003-2004.

He completed his first summit in 2006 at the Gasherbrum II Mountain at the Karakoram range. And he did not stop there, he also climbed the Golden Peak in the same year. His first winter and autumn ascent was at the ninth highest peak mountain of the world, Nanga Parbat.

He has successfully climbed around 8 of the 14 highest mountains of the world. Everyone admired him for being the first ever Pakistani mountaineer who was extremely successful in climbing high-altitude mountains.

After his body was recovered, Ali Sadpara vowed to walk in his fathers footsteps in order to live the dream that his father so desperately yearned for. He promised to continue making the nation proud of his fathers accomplishments.
