The young, spirited champ, Shehroze Kashif has achieved a milestone by becoming the youngest mountaineer to summit the King of the mountains, K2. Prior to that, he held the record of summitting Mount Everest. Well, that’s not all, Kashif also takes pride in climbing the Broad Peak – 8,051 metres – the world’s 12th highest mountain.

Shehroze’s father, Kashif Suliman confirmed the news of his summit. He told Geo News that his son climbed the world’s second-highest mountain at 8:10 in the morning. He furthered that Shehroze initiated his journey two weeks prior to the summit.

The 19-year-old reached the base camp in the second week of July to scale the 8,611 meters peak.

Other than his father, Alpine Adventure Guides also confirmed the news on Twitter. They wrote a Pakistani team has successfully waved the national flag on the top of K2. Kashif was one of the members, they added.

On May 11, he achieved the feat of becoming the youngest mountaineer to climb the world’s highest peak — Mount Everest.

Shehroze Kashif was the fifth Pakistani to scale the mighty K2 and was even awarded the title of the world’s youngest climber.

Taking to his Instagram, Kashif expressed his gratitude towards the Almighty and shared his experience of being on top of the world. He sounded ecstatic as he’d grabbed two titles in the same year within three months.

“While I can share the outward experience of summiting the second tallest mountain in the world, it is not possible to express things I felt inside. Only Allah knows those subtle feelings, uncertainties, fears, and overpowering joys,” he shared.
