Shehroze Kashif of Pakistan has become the world’s youngest person to scale the world’s third highest peak Kangchenjunga peak

Shehroze Kashif, Pakistan’s youngest mountaineer, put another feather to his cap on Thursday when he became the youngest mountaineer to reach the summit of the 8,586-meter Kangchenjunga peak.

Kashif, a Lahore native, also made history by becoming the first Pakistani to summit the world’s third-highest peak, located in the eastern Himalayas.

On his trips to Broad Peak and Everest, a young Pakistani climber, who had been the youngest Pakistani to conquer Mount Everest, needed supplemental oxygen.

With this achievement, ‘The Broad Boy,’ a Pakistani youngster, becomes the youngest mountaineer to summit the world’s highest peaks, including Everest 8849m, K2 8611m, and Kanchenjunga 8586m.

Meanwhile, sports fans, activists, and social media users complimented Kashif on his accomplishment and wished him a safe return from the summit.

According to reports, the Pakistani ace climber began hiking at the age of 11. At the age of 12, he began his quest by climbing the Makra peak, then Musa Ka Massalah mountain (4,080m), then Chembra peak (4,600m).

At the age of 19, he ascended Minglik Sar Shimshal (6,050 metres), K2 Gondogoro La K2 Base Camp, Khurdopin Pass (5,890 metres), Broad Peak (8,047 metres), Khusar Gang-Alpine Style, and Mount Everest (8,849 metres). He received the nickname “The Broad Boy” for his journey to the Broad Peak (8,047m).
