Lahore-based mountain climber Shehroze Kashif on Wednesday made history by scaling the 8,163 metres tall Manaslu in Nepal.
Kashif has now scaled 12 mountains above 8,000 metres, including the likes of Everest, K2 Kangchenjunga, Annapurna and others.
He is among those select Pakistani climbers who have scaled all five mountains taller than 8,000 metres in Pakistan, including K2, Broad Peak, Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum I and Gasherbrum II.
In Nepal, where the remaining nine eight-thousanders are located, Kashif is missing Cho Oyu - 8,188 metres -- and Shishapangma - 8,027 metres in his collection.
In a message, Alpine Club of Pakistan Secretary Karrar Haidri congratulated Shehroze on his amazing feat of climbing the eighth-highest mountain in the world, Manaslu.
Haidri added that Kashif is now the youngest climber to reach the summit of 12 summits over 8,000 metres.
"His commitment and the encouragement he's received from everyone are admirable. I hope he has a safe descent and more luck on his upcoming adventures," he said.
Kashif is in a race to become the first Pakistan to summit all 14 mountains taller than 8,000 metres. His competitors include Pakistan's most prolific female climber, Naila Kiani, Sajid Ali Sadpara -- the son of legendary mountaineer Ali Sadpara, and Sirbaz Khan.
