Canberra: Pakistani High Commissioner to Australia Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri this week congratulated Pakistani mountaineer Abdul Joshi on scaling Mount Everest.

“Abdul Joshi successfully scaled Mount Everest (8,848 metres). He is the eighth Pakistani to successfully scale the world’s highest Mountain,” the envoy tweeted.

Mountaineers say that Joshi is skilled climber but he mainly focuses on unclimbed peaks and finding paths to summit

Earlier, Abdul Joshi from Hunza made Pakistan proud as he successfully climbed the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest (8,848 metres) and raised the country’s flag on top of the world.

Known as “pathfinder” among mountaineers due to his extraordinary skills, Joshi was part of the team led by Mingma G. The expedition began on April 22 and they reached Camp 4 on May 15.

He is the eighth Pakistani to successfully scale Mount Everest. Nazir Sabir, Abdul Jabbar Bhatti, Hassan Sadpara, Mirza Ali Baig, Samina Baig, Shehroze Kashif and Sirbaz Ali Khan have also summitted the highest peak in the world.

In April last year, Joshi, along with Sirbaz Khan, had summitted 8,091 metres Annapurna peak. His first peak was Manglik Sar at 6,050 metres. He caught everyone’s attention when he led a team for the first-ever successful summit of Passu Cones in Gilgit.

Mountaineers say that Joshi is one of the most skilled climbers in the country but he mainly focuses on unclimbed peaks and finding paths to the summit.
